So I'm checking out The Independent, and saw the notice that one of the Miliband brothers just got married. For those not up on British politics, there are 2 brothers named Miliband who are among the top of the Labour party in the UK. Ed actually leads the party, but they were both in the running last time around.
Anyway, Ed just got married. He and his partner have been together for years, with 2 children. Read the whole story here, but I think it will sound familiar to a lot of us:http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/sibling-rivalry-on-hold-as-miliband-senior-sees-miliband-junior-wed-2290138.html
[QUOTE]The couple decided not to have a best man at the wedding – despite the younger Miliband carrying out that duty for his brother – or bridesmaids. The only speeches were delivered by the Labour leader and his new wife, who will use her maiden name in her professional life as a barrister.
Mr Miliband said that they wanted their wedding day to be appropriate to a couple in their 40s who already have children. [/QUOTE]
Some people happily marry without the big white princess wedding.
