Rejoice, middle-aged peoples of Long Island, for Billy Joel hath wed... Again!

The 66-year-old man who plays piano has married 33-year-old Alexis Roderick, making her his fourth wife and - by law - the Princess of Suffolk County.

Don't we all want to know just a little bit more about this blessed union?

Take it away, Business Insider:

The "Piano Man" singer has been dating the former Morgan Stanley risk manager for about six years now. The couple first met at an unnamed restaurant in Huntington, New York. They started out as friends.

Aww, they were friends and it became something more, that's adorab... Wait, she worked where?

FINRA records show that Roderick was working at Morgan Stanley in Melville, New York around the time she started dating Joel. The records indicate that during this time she joined Merrill Lynch's New York City office briefly before taking a 20 month break from Wall Street. She was last registered with Morgan Stanley in the Riverhead, New York office in April 2015, the records show.

Hey, if a Morgan risk officer with 10 years in the industry thinks it's a good idea to marry a thrice-divorced pop star twice her age, who are we to argue?

Morgan Stanley’s Gorman: What Investigation?

James Gorman, aka “Jimmy G,” is sick and tired of all these reporters suggesting his firm is under some kind of investigation by the Feds. Just because Goldman has been charged by the SEC, doesn’t mean Morgan Stanley, which lost a lot more money than GS during the crisis, also bet against its own shitty CDO deals. All the noise surely points to a conspiracy of short-sellers. We know who you are. Now go back to watching Miss USA pole dancing.
