Duck Dynasty’s Uncle Si Robertson and his wife Christine celebrated their very first wedding ceremony after 43 years of marriage, on Saturday, May 3, Us Weekly reported.
Si and Christine Robertson tied the knot in 1971, but never had a proper wedding after their justice-of-the-peace nuptials.

According to Us Weekly, Si and Christine Robertson celebrated their special day under a white tent at their son and daughter-in-law, Scott and Marsha Robertson.
Christine was escorted by her 2-year-old grandsons, Connorand Logan Robertson, as she made her way down the aisle to Si, who dressed in a camouflage tuxedo jacket. The bride and groom were feted by their Duck Dynasty family, and even got a special video message from actor Kirk Cameron.
For the first time ever, Si Robertson, 66, gifted Christine with a diamond wedding ring at the altar.
Si and Christine Robertson partied afterward at a green and purple themed reception. The crowd was entertained by the Nashville band The Mauldin Brothers and feasted on barbecue food, cooked up by local restaurant Podnuh’s. The Sweet Shop of Blue Ridge provided dozens of cupcakes, and kids had their very own dessert table that included push-up pops.
Si Robertson has opened up about family struggles and his history with alcohol abuse in his new book, Si-cology: Tales and Wisdom from Duck Dynasty’s Favorite Uncle.
New details from the book reported by RadarOnline surfaced this week:
1. Si and Phil Robertson’s mother suffered from mental health problems. When Si and Phil Robertson were both young boys, their mother “suffered a nervous breakdown and was diagnosed as manic-depressive,” the 65-year-old wrote.
“She spent a lot of time in hospitals and the state mental institution.”
Si Robertson also wrote that his own mind is “faulty.”
2. While serving in Vietnam, Si Robertson turned to alcohol. “Although I was there for only one year, it was a really difficult time in my life,” Si Robertson wrote.
“Believe me, it was easy to find a drink in Can Tho if you wanted one… You could find a drink and a girl whenever you wanted for the right price.”
The stress of military life in Vietnam drove Si Robertson to drink, he said.

“It was the only time in my life when I drank heavily… I was largely drinking to forget where I was. When you’re in a place like Vietnam, you get to a point where you don’t care anymore. You’re in a place that’s foreign to you, and you know for a fact that many people there hate you and will kill you if they get the chance. It really does something to your mind to know that many of the people living around you don’t like you and want you to die.”
3. When he returned from service, Si Robertson stopped drinking. “I drank so much beer and whiskey in Vietnam that I decided I would quit drinking alcohol altogether once I returned home,” Si Robertson wrote.
“I saw what alcohol was doing to me in Vietnam and realized I needed to stop for good.”
Uncle Si is known for drinking two gallons of tea per day, a habit that his doctor endorses: “He said I’ve probably got the cleanest kidneys in the world!”
4. Si Robertson’s son Scott had a troubled childhood. Si Robertson and his wife Christine’s son, Scott, was born almost two months premature and “was trouble before he was even born,”
Uncle Si wrote: “Scott was suicidal from the time he was about five years old. His behavior was really erratic as a child. When Scott would get tired, he would throw his arms out and fall backward… When Scott was angry, he was out of control and did a lot of damage.”
Eventually, Scott Robertson was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome and now leads a happy, healthy life.
“It took me a while to realize Scott needed help,” Si Robertson wrote.
Si Robertson’s wife, Christine, has yet to tell the media why she hasn’t appeared on Duck Dynasty.
Critics of the show speculate that Christine Robetson isn’t ready to come out from the behind the scenes and let the public get to know her.
There was some confusion about Si Robertson and Christine’s exact relationship until Jessica, Jep Robertson’s wife, posted a photo on her Twitter page with the caption: “Me, #Si & his sweet WIFE Christine @Mrs.Kay’s 65 bday party! So blessed to have such a large & close family.”
It was revealed in Willie Robertson’s book The Duck Commander Family: How Faith, Family, and Ducks Built a Dynasty that Uncle Si and Christine have two children, a son named Scott Robertson and a daughter named Trasa Robertson Cobern.
Scott Robertson currently serves in the US Army and has been deployed to Iraq several times. He and his wife Marsha Markert Robertson have three boys, Ethan and twins Lohan and Connor.

Duck Dynasty Season 4 is currently being filmed and will premiere on Wednesday, August 14.
Of interest, Si Robertson and the rest of the bearded Duck Dynasty family can be seen on Hallmark Father’s Day cards this year. They went on sale June 3 at Walmart stores nationwide.
If you’re planning to attend the Arkansas Outdoors Expo on July 20th and 21st this year at the Conway Expo Center in Conway, you’re in luck! This year’s show will feature a meet and greet and autograph session with Si Robertson.
Si Merritt “Si” Robertson is Duck Commander Phil’s younger brother, best friend, and partner in crime.
Born on April 27, 1948, Si Robertson has a very specific job at the Duck Commander workshop, fashioning the reeds that are inserted in every patented duck call. It’s a pretty easy job, made needlessly difficult by the fact that Si Robertson can never seem to stay on task.
A Vietnam War veteran, Uncle Si Robertson often shares his war stories with the guys in reality show Duck Dynasty
A Vietnam War veteran, Uncle Si Robertson often shares his war stories with the guys in reality show Duck Dynasty, which usually gets the crew behind schedule, much to his nephew Willie’s dismay.
Si Robertson’s most famous story is that while serving overseas, his mother sent him a blue mug. Thirty years later it’s still hanging from his back pocket and he continues to only drink from this cup, every day.
Uncle Si is married to Christine for many many years and they have together two children: a daughter, Trasa Cobern Robertson, and a son, Scott Robertson. Christine, Trasa and Scott are not featured in the reality show.
Duck Dynasty’s fans finally found out about Si Robertson’s wife, Christine.
Christine Robertson does not appear in the show but Uncle Si posted a photo on Facebook of the couple together and he let everyone know that she had been his sweetheart for 43 years.
Uncle Si has two children with Christine, son Scott Robertson and daughter Trasa Robertson Cobern.
Trasa is married to Kyle Wayne Cobern, 46, and they have four sons together.

Like his father, Scott Robertson, 35, is enrolled in the US Army and had at least three deployments to Iraq. He is married to Marsha Markert Robertson and they have three boys together, Ethan and twins Logan and Connor. They live in Williamsburg, Virginia.

Si Robertson’s daughter, Trasa Cobern, 37, is a social studies teacher in Hurst, Texas, where she is living with her husband of 15 years and their four boys.
Trasa Cobern has short blonde hair and what appear to be big hazel eyes. She is pretty like any of the lovely ladies on the program.
