Quick Courtships

#1
I see there is a bit of a furore over the French President, Mr Sarkozy getting wed today to a Model somewhat younger than himself. However, most of the criticism has been about the fact that he has only known her since last November.
I met Herr Indoors in January 1965, was married in the 2nd week in April, and exactly a month later was back at sea. 43 years later, we're still together, all the cuckoos have flown the nest, and we have 16 grandkids.
The French bookies are giving odds that he'll be divorced by next year - has anyone else had such a rapid courtship, and did it work for you out or not ?
(PS - I was the first bloke in our street in Devonport for about 5 years who was a "volunteer", rather than a "pressed man".)

Now I'm confused.

Johne, you may be right after all as a fit young woman has just moved into my Tardis and she spends most of her evenings running from room to room screaming and yelling :dwarf:

My oldest sister met her husband to be on a flight from Paris to London (50 minutes).
Less than a month later they were married.
That was in 1966 and they've been going strong ever since.
A reason I reckon is that they are chalk and cheese and have very different views and interests.
