Ditto here, didn't know anybody was getting married, especially nowadays, unless the cow stopped given it away for free.
Good judgement comes from experience. Where does experience come from? Poor judgement.

Oddly enough, this isn't a marriage thread, but seeing as we're talking cows and women and marriage, I should drop this baby right here.

States the the rich are marrying the rich and the poor aren't getting married at all. Nothing to do with the birth rate though.

Didn't know about the wedding before you posted and now I've looked it up, I still don't care. At least they had a nice car, but it's a shame she wasn't the one driving.

On May 4th there was a poll in which Castanet readers voted to ditch the monarchy:

Isn't it really time to just move on?

Sure.

I believe Royalty has run its course. Time for IT to move on.

To completely move on means removing a piece of our Constitution, which means opening up a huge can of worms.
Last time any changes was attempted s :cuss: hit the fan.
I want a cut from British monarchy unfortunately crap needed to be done for this to happen would be very high (I'm not talking financial).

The monarchy has total control over the British press.
