.- On Saturday, Michael Schiavo, former husband of brain-damaged Terri Schiavo, who died of forced starvation last spring, married his long-time girlfriend in Espiritu Santo Catholic Church, near Tampa, Florida.

Michael Schiavo fought the Vatican, the U.S. Supreme Court, Congress and even the president as he battled to end the life of his late wife, whom he claimed, told him that she wouldn’t have wanted to be kept alive in her incapacitated state.

He also vehemently fought Terri’s family, who argued that their daughter and sister would have made no such claim--namely due to her strong Catholic faith.

Michael met Jodi Centonze, with whom he has already fathered two children, 11 years ago, after his wife had already been admitted to a Tampa-area nursing home.

Supporters of Terri and her family have criticized the pair for marrying in a Catholic Church, despite Michael’s disobedience to the Vatican who implored him not to kill his wife.
