TomKat Married?

I smell a contract.

Yesterday, Rush and Molly reported that according to the National Enquirer, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes may already have gotten married. Last July.

One of the church’s chaplains married the couple early last July in a ceremony at sea, according to The National Enquirer.

Cruise and Holmes, who met a few months earlier, are said to have exchanged rings emblazoned with triangular Scientology symbols during a Caribbean cruise aboard the sect’s ship the Freewinds. (They supposedly wear their rings only at church functions.) Holmes, who once claimed she would remain virginal until her wedding day, wore white, says the tab.

After the ceremony, the couple walked across a tiny bridge — a Scientology symbol for the journey to “total freedom,” sources claim. Scientologists John Travolta and Kirstie Alley are said to have been on the ship, where guests also celebrated Cruise’s 43rd birthday.

Could the reason why they couple has kept this a secret, if the report is true, is that if they had gotten married back then, no one would have believed that the marriage was for real? Or is it because that before Katie Holmes was turned into a Scientologist, her Catholic ways got the better of her. She didn’t want to be an unwed mother?
