This week Rove MacManus and Tasma Walton got married in Broome. Apparently no magazines knew about it, so none of them got the rights to all the pics.
Sucked in you little fuckers!
Anyhoo, it came to light that Tasma proposed to Rove and asked his mother for her blessing!
That got me up in arms.
Now while I am an old fashioned gal, I personally think that asking ANY PARENT for their daughter’s hand in marriage/blessing is nothing but a pile of bullshit!
Unless you are under the legal age limit for marriage, there is no need to ask for permission to marry someone. Or you come from one of these dumb-arse religions/countries that thinks all women are owned first by the father, then by the husband.
However, this is AUSTRALIA! You DO NOT NEED PERMISSION TO MARRY SOMEONE!
I find the whole, asking for permission thing as gross, outdated, and very VERY WRONG in this day and age.
Maybe it’s just me. But I could not give a shit if my husband thought he needed permission. The only permission he needed was mine!
