Wedding Band on the Run

I've heard of asking the Father of the Bride's permission before proposing, but who thought to ask one of the Beatles?:

Paul McCartney gives Ohio Couple Permission to Marry

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) — An ordinary down-on-one-knee engagement request just wouldn't be memorable enough for Ben Okuly.

He wanted something more, so he planned to ask his girlfriend, Melissa Steele, at a Paul McCartney concert Oct. 14 in suburban Detroit.

But it became a whole lot more memorable when McCartney joined in.

Since, reportedly, Paul and his late wife Linda were so in love that they never spent a day apart in the course of their marriage, he might not be a bad guy to ask!

Is never spending a day apart REALLY the best test of true love? I'll grant that people who don't love each other might find excuses to be apart, but it still seems like a poor test for "so in love." Then again, the "so in love" thing is itself kind of strange. What is "in love" anyway?

Yeah, but then within about 18 months of his wifes death he went and married young model 'heather Mills'...that was when he lost my respect...which I'm sure he couldn't care less about!

God Bless
