is that to much to ask?
That sounds good, but I think that is also what is precisely so tricky. It's not the 50's. There are not a lot of women that are in careers where they can or would be willing to pick up their lifes & move to Monaco & be princess on the side if that would really be possible. Although I think if he finds someone a little more mature & that has a interest in the outside world rather than at the age where people are still looking inwardly they might be evolved enough to embrace the position as something beside their picture in the tabloids.
I really do see how it would be hard to be in his position, a smart women would really have to think hard about it (depending on how much she loved him). It's still easy enough to carve out a nice life w/o all the concessions one would have to make. I'm not so sure Grace Kelly would have made the decision she did if it was 2006, I think she had a hard enough time in the 50's. I do hope he can find someone with something going on for herself & is at least interesting & smart. But I can see his challenge it's not an easy position to fill & plus be the one you're in love with too. Although he does seem to be looking in the wrong direction. Maybe he can just relax about it, if it's meant to happen it will!
