    A leading Egyptian cleric irked his Christian compatriots when he said on television that the Islamic figure Muhammed would marry the Virgin Mary in heaven. Dr Salem Abdel Galil, a theologian at Cairo’s prestigious Al Azhar academy and a former director-general of the Ministry of Religions, said on his television program that “Allah, hallowed be his name, chose Mary of all the women, alongside Asiya, Pharaoh’s wife, Aisha and Khadijea, Prophet Muhammed’s wives, and Fatima, the Prophet’s daughter. There are verses in the Quran that suggest that in heaven Muhammed will marry the Virgin Mary, the mother of Jesus peace...

    A man has filed a lawsuit in Florida for the right to marry his MacBook computer, according to the UK Telegraph newspaper. Chris Sevier argues that if same-sex marriages are allowed, on the grounds that one can marry anyone they love, then Sever should be allowed to marry his computer. Apparently it is not just any computer that turns Sevier’s head, but the massive inventory of pornography stored on it: “Over time, I began preferring sex with my computer over sex with real women. Naturally, I ‘fell in love’ with my computer and preferred having sex with it over all...

    Last year, Susan Patton, a Princeton grad and the mother of two sons at the elite college, outraged feminists when she wrote an open letter to the Daily Princetonian telling female students to find a husband on campus before they graduate.

    Saudi Arabia, the birthplace of some of the most strict interpretations of Islam, has a notoriously unyielding police force. But unlike most countries, the Saudi kingdom also has an active “religious police,” and the roles of the two sometimes seem to overlap. For instance, Al-Arabiya related Friday that a man was recently arrested by the ​real​ police after being found in possession of documents indicating his desire to…marry a Jewish woman. He was reportedly near the Grand Mosque in Mecca when apprehended. Al-Arabiya explains: Lieutenant Abdulmohsen Maiman, spokesman for the Grand Mosque police, told [al-Hayat newspaper] that the 49-year-old Saudi...

The duchess's six children have until now opposed her plans to wed Alfonso Diez, who is 24 years her junior. Local media reports say she plans to get round her children by giving them their inheritance early. ''Alfonso doesn't want anything. All he wants is me,'' the duchess was quoted as saying earlier this year.

    We keep hearing that young men are failing to adapt to contemporary life. Their financial prospects are impaired—earnings for 25- to 34-year-old men have fallen by 20 percent since 1971. Their college enrollment numbers trail women's: Only 43 percent of American undergraduates today are men. Last year, women made up the majority of the work force for the first time. And yet there is one area in which men are very much in charge: premarital heterosexual relationships.

    Hammond, Louisiana--A justice of the peace said he refused to issue a marriage license to an interracial couple last week because of concern for the children who might be born of that relationship. Keith Bardwell, justice of the peace for Tangipahoa Parish’s 8th Ward, also said it is his experience that most interracial marriages do not last long. “I’m not a racist,” Bardwell said. “I do ceremonies for black couples right here in my house. My main concern is for the children.” Beth Humphrey, 30, said she and her boyfriend, Terence McKay, 32, both of Hammond, intend to consult the...

    It Might Be True That 'Men Marry Their Mothers' ScienceDaily (May 7, 2008) — Whether a young man's mother earned a college degree and whether she worked outside the home while he was growing up seems to have an effect years later when he considers his ideal wife, according to a study by University of Iowa sociologist Christine Whelan. High-achieving men -- those who earn salaries in the top 10 percent for their age and/or have a graduate degree -- are highly likely to marry a woman whose education level mirrors their mom's. Nearly 80 percent of the high-achieving men...

    California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger Says Marriage Could be Eliminated in Future SACRAMENTO, August 27, 2007 ( - In legal briefs submitted to the California Supreme Court, which is considering whether to license "same-sex marriages" next year, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and Attorney General Jerry Brown both stated that a future Legislature could abolish marriage and yank marriage rights from a married husband and wife. A group hoping to place a question on the 2008 ballot to defend traditional marriage suggests that the briefs are evidence of the urgent need for the ballot initiative. In the Governor's brief, filed by his team...

    Same-sex couples from states where gay marriage is banned cannot legally marry in Massachusetts, the state's highest court ruled Thursday. The Supreme Judicial Court, which three years ago made Massachusetts the first state to legalize gay marriage, upheld a 1913 state law that forbids nonresidents from marrying in Massachusetts if their marriage would not be recognized in their home state. "The laws of this commonwealth have not endowed non-residents with an unfettered right to marry," the court wrote in its 38-page opinion. "Only non-resident couples who come to Massachusetts to marry and intend to reside in this commonwealth thereafter can...

    The head of the Italy’s Roman Catholic episcopal conference has called on priests to advise Catholics against marrying Muslims. Cultural differences over issues such as the role of women and the education of children made such partnerships very difficult, said Cardinal Camillo Ruini, the Vicar General of Rome. In a document released to the conference of bishops yesterday, Cardinal Ruini wrote: "The experience of recent years leads us as a general rule to advise against or in any case to discourage these marriages. "Mixed Catholic and Muslim couples who intend to have a family have other difficulties above and beyond...
