Our thanks to Mike P for this. An extract:
Prince Harry always has been something of a romantic, publicly lamenting his difficulties in finding lasting love.
Now he’s engaged to Meghan Markle, the 33-year-old has made the most dramatic sign of his devotion: [J4MB: No, the most dramatic sign of his naivety.] I hear that Harry has rejected signing a prenuptial agreement to safeguard his estimated £30 million fortune.
‘There was never any question in Harry’s mind that he would sign a prenup,’ one of his friends tells me. ‘He’s determined that his marriage will be a lasting one, so there’s no need for him to sign anything.’… [J4MB: If he were solely responsible for whether the marriage would last, his determination might be important. He’s setting himself up to be her slave, onw with a difference – one who will leave with a large part of his fortune.]
Meghan divorced her first husband, American film producer Trevor Engelson, after two years.
The likelihood of divorce is around 50% for most marriages in the UK, and increases with each subsequent marriage.
I went to four different betting shops in Bedford last week. Not one would give me odds on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle divorcing within five years of their marriage.
Remember, folks, Men shouldn’t marry.
