Screen Shot 2016-01-12 at 9.21.09 AMRupert Murdoch and Jerry Hall are engaged. The couple announced their decision in the Times of London, which Murdoch owns. Let the record show that romance should never come before a nice discount.

“Mr. Rupert Murdoch, father of Prudence, Elisabeth, Lachlan, James, Grace and Chloe Murdoch, and Miss Jerry Hall, mother of Elizabeth, James, Georgia and Gabriel Jagger, are delighted to announce their engagement,” read the statement.

If this actually happens (hey, who knows!) this will be Murdoch’s fourth marriage. Fourth. Does Murdoch know that he doesn’t have to get married all the time? He’s 84 for god’s sake! What’s the point? Why not just date her until you die? Not to sound harsh but c’mon, he maybe has six more years left.

At some point Murdoch has to realize he’s not very good at being married, right? Right?
