The Kennedy children have been rapidly marrying over the past couple of years. On Saturday, Christopher Kennedy, son of the late Robert F. Kennedy, was married in Winnetka, Ill., to his former college classmate, law student Sheila Berner. The couple was married in Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church in the wealthy North Shore Chicago suburb. It was the bride's childhood church.

Several members of the groom's family, including his mother Ethel Kennedy and his uncle Sen. Edward Kennedy, and cousins Ted Kennedy Jr., Rep. Joseph Kennedy and Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg, attended the service. Christopher, 24, is the eighth of Robert and Ethel Kennedy's 11 children.

Both newlyweds attended Boston College, from which Berner, 24, graduated in 1985 and Kennedy one year later. Berner attends Northwestern University Law School and the young Kennedy works in the planning division at the Kennedy family's Merchandise Mart in Chicago.

He was defeated in his attempt to run for Congress, and his estranged wife Alice brought him to the attention of authorities when she said that he was a cocaine abuser. She later retracted the statement. Like most public figures who spend much of their time courting the media, Bond was sharply critical of how his private life came under scrutiny, referring to members of the media as "vultures." He now says it was just his luck that the stories about him occurred at a time when people were looking for Pulitzer prizes. Bond says he is seriously considering going back to political life in some elected capacity once he can pay off the $200,000 debt from his unsuccessful House campaign ...
