'Who The (Bleep) Did I Marry?': Thad Roberts Stole Moon Rocks From NASA To Impress A Girl

Unlike most stories on "Who the (Bleep) Did I Marry?," Kaydee Wilson's husband wasn't particularly dangerous or violent, and she didn't suffer any physical harm at his hands. Instead, she was associated with one of the most unexpected and bizarre crimes imaginable.

Her husband, Thad Roberts, was an intern for NASA in the summer of 2002 when he orchestrated a heist. His targets were rocks from the moon. They were estimated to be worth about $21 million. But why did he do it?

Roberts told CBS last year he did it for love. "I did it because I wanted to be loved. I wanted someone to know that I'd literally cared about them that much. And to have the symbol there to remind them of it," he said.

But Roberts wasn't talking about his wife. Instead, he was doing all of this for a fellow intern, a woman he'd known for only three weeks. For his efforts, he got a six-year sentence in prison, and a divorce from his wife.

After getting out, Roberts' story has been made into a book, which is reportedly being developed into a movie. As for Roberts himself, he's out on the circuit as an inspirational speaker, encouraging audiences to "chase their dreams and change their lives."

More stories of unexpected spouses emerge every Wednesday on "Who the (Bleep) Did I Marry?" at 9 p.m. ET on ID.
