  1. rafflaw–

    I agree about theirs being a match made in heaven–two soulmates perfectly suited for each other.

    I think, in this couple’s case, that old marriage saying should be changed to–“something old, something new, something burglarized, now we’re blue.”

  2. They’ll have a great first night of marriage story to tell their friends, not to mention the vicissitudes of their honeymoon.

  3. Ah, the old Crystals song:

    “Goooing to the chapel
    and goooing get money …
    in this chapppel of cash.”

  4. Unfortunate, I guess. At least they were not breeding that night. I guess this young man learned a valuable lesson, don’t marry an older women. They may have experience that you do not want.
