Hollywood’s most famous bachelor is now a happily married man — just look at the photos that spilled out from Venice, Italy, this weekend.
George Clooney, 53, married British human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin, 36, Saturday in a lavish celebration that included a lot of rides on water taxis. The couple were officially married in a civil ceremony Monday.
It’s the second marriage for George (who in 2006 said marriage is not something he’s looking for) and first for Amal.
While American media can’t seem to believe George actually went through with it, writers at The Business Woman Media decided to focus on what this marriage means for Amal and working women. Because, Business Woman reports, Amal has represented Julian Assange of WikiLeaks and has “long been a high-profile figure in international refugee and human rights law.”

We also liked this bit in the story about George: “He’s probably a nice man, but seems to be a bit clingy, as since she met him it’s hard to find a photo or footage of Amal without him hanging around in the background.”
So it’s no wonder that George fell in love with the attractive, intelligent lawyer with a heart of gold — who also has an impeccable fashion sense. Just look at what she wore throughout the weekend.
For the doubters, here’s George wearing the wedding ring.
And in case you’ve forgotten about the younger, goofier-looking George, Time magazine has a photo gallery.
