heh. Excellent point.
She did make a lovely bride though. I love how the ears of wheat tiara echo the design on the bodice of the gown.

Did Alex become a princess due to her marriage?

There's a bit of debate about that one actually..
The marriage of Alex Boy's parents may not have been approved by the head of the Von Furtenberg House. If it wasn't approved, then the children of the marriage (alex and his sister) aren't Prince/Princess of Furstenberg. They also shouldn't be able to call themselves Von Furstenberg. (Von is a sign of nobility/royalty). Actually, in German his last name wouldn't even be Von Furstenberg. It'd be something like Prinzen Von Furstenberg or something along those lines. (See the Princess Caroline threads for her offical title as Princess of Hanover. It'll be similar).
However, I haven't seen anything regarding the marriage that says one way or another (the parents's marriage I mean) although the grandfather of Alex boy was not at the marriage of Alex boy's parents, leading me to believe that it wasn't approved.
So, she was probably not a princess during the marriage, and afterwards, more then likely did not keep the title (if Alex Boy had one).

Really? In every picture I saw she was fawning all over him and he couldn't look more disinterested.

Poor Bob Miller ~ With the money he spent on each of his three daughters&#39; (Marie Chantal and Prince Pavlos, Pia and [I don&#39;t know his given name] Getty, and Alex and Alex)&#39;s weddings, you could feed 3 meals a day, every day, for nearly every citizen of Jordan for a couple of years&#33; To have two of his daughter&#39;s marriages collapse, it must be pretty depressing. It just goes to show that money doesn&#39;t always buy happiness. :(

Margareth, Someone on this LTR newsgroup board wrote that Pia was separated or having some difficulty with her marriage, etc., etc. I read it here. Maybe it&#39;s really not true (which I hope), but it came as a little shock to me. If you know for sure if it&#39;s not true, please let me know.

Q Margrethe:
In the "Marie Chantal and Pavlos News and Pix thread Part II" forum (closed
Feb. 18), on page 9 Sheeba summarized an interview w/M-C and she talked about her sisters&#39; marriages ending.

He really cheated on her for years, and I&#39;m not dishing. Stories about him fly all over NYC. He was even cheating on her when they were younger while he was at Brown. She married him knowing that he was a cheater, so I expected them to either divorce or eventually end up leading separate lives. I guess that she thought that a marriage and children would change him, but that hardly ever works.

That&#39;s a good question. Alex girl didn&#39;t really have a need for one as much MC does, so it may be a loan from Alex boy&#39;s family. I don&#39;t think the tiara has been seen since.
I don&#39;t think that the family gave her a tiara. But, the one that she wore for her wedding has been in the Furstenburg family for a very long time. I believe that it dates back to the Napoleonic era.

Very true, Elizajane.

However, the rumor in social circles has always been that the marriages would either end or the parties would end up leading lives apart from one another. It has always been said in private and even in a few publications that Pia and Alex would most likely have marriage troubles. The opinion of many is that the marriages were more status based than anything. There were most likely some emotions in the beginning for Pia and Alex and their husbands, but it is pretty clear that Mama Miller wanted her daughters to use their heads when they married and not mainly their hearts. She wanted them to marry men with names of good social standing. Sometimes this is how the "good name" marriages work out in the end.

MC and Pavlos, however, seem to be doing very well. I think that is do in large part to the fact that both Pavlos and MC seem to be in their marriage and not just one person, as were Pia and Alex. I haven&#39;t heard any stories about Pavlos as I have about Chris Getty and Alexandre. Hopefully, he and MC will be together for a very long time. :)

I&#39;m not the biggest fan of any of the Miller sisters. But I must say that no matter who you are, or how much money you have, it hurts to be cheated on. Especially when it&#39;s public knowledge. It makes me feel really sorry for her. :(

:( Gee, I didn&#39;t know that. I just though they fell out of love. That&#39;s very sad. I figured that since they knew each other for so long the marriage would be a success. I guess that doesn&#39;t always happen no matter who you are or how much money you have.......

It really does.

But, the divorces for the two sisters have apparently been finalized and Alexandra has a new guy. I&#39;m not sure if Pia is dating anyone, however. She is the really low-key sister when compared to Alex and MC. She could get married again and have another child and no one know about it for a year.

Alex (girl) was just dumb about it--anyone could see that Alex (boy) was not in love with her. She just dropped everything in her life and followed him around like a puppy dog. Too bad there are now two kids who don&#39;t get to see their father often.

I didn&#39;t know that Alex and Alex had 2 kids - that makes fhs whole thing even worse, any marriage break up is terrible, but especially if children are involved.
Does anyone know how old the children are, and are they both boys/girls, or one of each?
Thanks Nicole

I know that Alex has a boy and a girl, Talisso and Talita I think are their names. I think they are both under 5 years old.
