    Anyone else feeling a little clamp-jawed at the new Princess Meghan Markle's feeling so free to diss President Trump publicly, from London? And now I read that she and Harry really like the Obamas and want them at their wedding. I think it is tacky and it is certainly not gracious or polite. I bet she has a pussy hat.

    Meghan McCain didn’t have second thoughts about wearing her dream Marchesa wedding dress during her November nuptials to conservative writer Ben Domenech. High-end fashion brand Marchesa is run by Georgina Chapman, the estranged wife of disgraced film mogul Harvey Weinstein, as well as Keren Craig. “The scandal erupted and everybody was like, ‘Are you going to keep the dress?’ And I was like, ‘Why should the two women designers be punished for a man’s disgusting behavior?” McCain, 33, told People. “I just didn’t wanna feel like the people who had worked there and make their livelihood should be punished as...

For one thing, Simpson was about to divorce for the second time. Also, she was from Baltimore.

Palace officials say their wedding is expected next year. Mako says she fell in love with his "smiles like the sun," sincerity and a big heart. Mako's 83-year-old grandfather, Emperor Akihito, is expected to abdicate in late...

She was married to Hollywood lawyer Ronald Richards. They divorced in 2009. The pair tied the knot Saturday evening at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium, a historic building...

    Probably Overthinking It ^ | 10/14/2016 | Allen Downey
    Last year I presented a paper called "Will Millennials Ever Get Married?" at SciPy 2015. You can see video of the talk and download the paper here. I used data from the National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG) to estimate the age at first marriage for women in the U.S., broken down by decade of birth. I found evidence that women born in the 1980s and 90s were getting married later than previous cohorts, and I generated projections that suggest they are on track to stay unmarried at substantially higher rates. Yesterday the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) released...

    An FBI translator assigned to investigate a German rapper-turned-terrorist instead traveled to Syria to marry him, according to CNN. Daniela Greene lied to the FBI about her whereabouts and warned her new husband, Denis Cuspert, about the investigation. Cuspert, who rapped under the name Deso Dogg, has been featured in videos for the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria holding severed human heads, CNN reports. According to the report, Greene realized she had made a mistake just weeks after marrying Cuspert. She then fled back to the U.S., where she was arrested and agreed to cooperate with authorities.
