Skip to comments.Limbaugh to Wed Longtime Girlfriend
Posted on 05/28/2010 9:47:18 AM PDT by Ancient Drive
Radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh is set to marry his longtime girlfriend, Kathryn Rogers, next week in an intimate ceremony at his beachfront home in Palm Beach, Fla.
Limbaugh, 59, met 33-year-old Rogers, a direct descendant of Founding Father John Adams, in 2004 when she ran a golf tournament/charity fundraiser and Limbaugh was a celebrity guest, Jose Lambiet reports in his column in the Palm Beach Post.
At the time, Limbaugh was getting divorced from third wife Marta. That split was finalized later that year, and Limbaugh and Rogers were an item by the summer of 2007.

What bothers me are Rush’s often repeated point that “Words mean things.” Are there any other words spoken that carry more weight and responsibility then our marriage vows? Yet three times now Rush’s words(vows) have meant nothing. I hope he gets it right this time.
Me too! Rush is not getting any younger!
The “sugar daddy” comment was the perfect answer. When I read it I wished I had thought of that at the time. It would have been the ultimate dig. He was all of 48 and she was no more than 25.
FWIW I’m 48 and my wife is 36.
You and your wife laughed at this guy and his girlfriend? Did you know this couple?
I agree she ain’t no spring chicken. Nice teeth, though.
How naive can you possibly be?
If Limbaugh had met her when he was 36 she’d be 10 years old...
That is a VERY NICE picture of them.
I pray this marriage lasts.
You’re right about words, and marriage vows. I am very much against divorce, but I seem to have given Rush a pass here.
This is unscriptural - God’s laws are the same for everyone, superconservative or not! And we’re to be no respecter of persons!
I don’t know if it was laughed at them as much as we were laughing about the comment our son made. We were eating our meal(s) and the couple walked in. I didn’t even see them until they walked directly in front of us at which time the question was announced.
Bottom line is that if you’re going to do the May/April thing as opposed to May/December you don’t take your date to a family friendly place.
You only get to go to affairs the are titled “The Addam’s Family” !
Kathryn and Rush both know his record. Hopefully Kathryn fully understands she will always be the second passion in his life to his love for radio. If she does, they’ll be fine. I wish them every happiness and many long and fruitful years together.
I would have gone with Paul Lynde to block, but this may work out.
Don't tell me you're also part Cherokee.
I admit up front I don’t understand the “May/April thing as opposed to May/December” inference or terminology, so it could be that I might misunderstand you. What does that mean? I make the assumption it is a way of describing a romantic relationship where the difference in age between the two people is large, but still legal as it would be if a 65 year old had a relationship with an 18 year old. Is that what you mean?
If that is not what you mean, then perhaps you describe a 29 year old guy going out with a 16 year old girl, and if so, then I would heartily agree with you and think some shame and ridicule is in order and a “family friendly” restaurant wouldn’t be appropriate. That is very different.
When you were 26, your wife would have been 14. Or you would have been 30 when she was 18 (in which case she would have been an adult.)
I think you can rightly say that your situation is likely different from that of the couple in the restaurant, but without knowing them personally, how do you know?
For all you know, that guy might have been happily married to a wife his own age, and his wife might have died a terrible death from cancer. This young woman, whoever she was, might have been someone who helped the guy get through it, and I don’t mean in a sexual way.
The point is, we don’t know, so his situation might have been materially the same as yours and your wife’s in some significant way.
Again, this is nothing personal to you in the way I presented it, I just used you as an example. I thought your son’s comment WAS pretty funny, it is the lovely, innocent kind of thing children say that slays us as adults when we hear it.
It brings to mind the story (apocryphal) of the young kid sitting in a shopping cart in the checkout line at the grocery story, when the very large woman pushing the cart in front of them began to emit a loud beeping sound as her pager went off. The kid twists frantically and loudly says “Mom! She’s backing up...!!!”
Now true or not, that IS pretty funny. That is why Art Linkletter’s show “Kids say the Darndest Things” was so darn popular.
But the point I started to make was, if I understand your distinctions (using my examples as described above) then we would not be in agreement with a couple of legal age. I don’t think that couple was worthy of opprobrium.
Mia Farrow married Frank Sinatra in 1966 with a 29 year age difference. The divorce was finalized in 1968.
TX-PA - how abt he isn’t on TV lying to the american people abt some poor chubby intern he took advantage of...or how abt that he really WAS born in the USofA...or how abt he didn’t know there was a male prostitution ring operating out of his basement or dope growing in his backyard...
you have to read up on the many MORE salacious happenings from the dim side than the foibles of our pubbie brothers...OK?
re: direct descendant
Found this on the internet...it seems to make sense :o)
“Most of the time, descendant is the proper term. But when you want to distinguish between a lineal descendant and a relative, you can use the terms direct descendant and indirect descendant. A direct descendant is the offspring of parents, grandparents, and so on, ad infinitum. An indirect descendant is the offspring of the brother or sister of your parent, grandparent, etc. For example, you are a direct descendant of your mother, while your cousins are her indirect descendants. But you and all of your cousins are direct descendants of your common grandmother.”
I think she's getting too old for that now, though.
