Apologies Allan.

I will delete my intrusion.

Which is which Allan? True, it's difficult to tell, they both appear to be suffering.

However, one has money, the other, apparently, has acting skills.

And what has that to do with predatory marriage, Dermot?

This is about one person marrying, the operative word, another to benefit in some way or another by the death of the spouse

Droit du soigneur war just an excuse for a randy old bas***d to get his leg over :-P

'Shotgun' weddings were occasional events in the past. ;-)


Allan Report 8 Apr 2021 09:57

Which is which in that marriage :-S

I think that IS a serious comment. Allan.

There are those who predate on others with mental health issues.

Allan you think like me :-D :-D :-D


Caroline Report 8 Apr 2021 00:52

Like the way you think Allan....

you may have something there, Allan!

There is another, serious, thread regarding Predatory Marriages.

Having read the posts I was going to make a not so serious comment, but then decided that it would not be appropriate on that thread hence this one :-)

I do have a weird 'sense' of humour and it kicks in at the most awkward and inappropriate time.

Having read the other Thread, my immediate thought was: Could Meghan and Harry's marriage be described as predatory, although in this case there was no death involved before someone got everything they were looking for :-0

Hey ho: it's time for my medication :-D :-D
