Love Me Twice, Divorce Me Twice
Why marry a different person twice when you can commit to the same one twice in a lifetime since you already know what to expect regarding that person’s flaws and virtues? Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Barton did just that. Something familiar is always welcome, or so they thought. In their case, the same old apparently had become boring.
There is a saying that says a lie repeated a hundred times eventually becomes the truth. Maybe this couple believed that. If they say I do a hundred times, they might stay together, but it didn’t work out. Twice they vowed eternal love, and twice they lied to each other. But there is another saying, and that is that hope dies last. I bet they wanted to succeed because otherwise, they wouldn’t waste time writing vows again, but still, what we want and what is possible doesn’t always match.
