Michael Schiavo marries long-time girlfriend

January 22, 2006 - Posted at 1:55 p.m. CST

SAFETY HARBOR, Fla. (AP) _ Friends and family members say Terri
Schiavo's former husband has married his long-time girlfriend.

Michael Schiavo and his longtime girlfriend (Jodi Centonze) were
wed yesterday at a church in Florida. The bride's brother says it
was a very emotional ceremony.

Schiavo's former wife, Terri, had suffered severe brain damage
more than a decade ago and died last March after her feeding tube
was removed. Michael Schiavo had argued his wife was in a
vegetative state, and would not want to be kept alive artificially.
Her parents disputed that. The debate would eventually involve
Congress, the U-S Supreme Court and the Vatican.

The newlyweds first met in a dentist's office and began a
relationship after Terri Schiavo was already in a nursing home.
They have two young children.
