I think she found it boring.

Anyway now she is designing jewelry.

I don't believe they'd ever get back together after all this time; that ship has sailed.

If there's a mask on, it's going to be there when the people live together too.
This is very true. Life is change and with time, people change also. I'm definitely not the person I was at 20 or even at 40 and at 65 I'm still changing. Its called growth. Some couples are so connected that they grow together. Other couples grow apart. It happens. There's no guarantee what works for you at 20, 30, 40 and so on will remain the same.

To really ensure any good relationship, it needs to have a good, solid foundation of honesty, trust and openness. Each person lets other people into their lives at a level of trust that's comfortable for them. Trust isn't something too that is just given. It is earned. When trust goes in a relationship, the foundation of it crumbles.

I always advised my kids as they grew older to live with a partner before even thinking of taking the marriage step. So far its worked and all three kids are happily in their first marriages. Children of a divorce (mine were older teens at the time) tend to be more cautious when it comes to marriage.

Harry and Chelsy were in different places when they dated. So were Harry and Cressida. They found that the relationship didn't work for them so they've moved on. This may happen with Meghan or it may be just the right fit for both of them with what they want their lives to be like. This is something that only the two of them can figure out and hopefully, they're addressing all the ins and outs and upside downs of things before they come to a decision.

One thing for sure though is that we do not know what is right or what is wrong for this couple. We don't know them.

I was rooting for Harry and Chelsea also but it takes two to tango and it seems they decided not to continue their romantic relationship but they remain friends.

Judging by his public serious girlfriends he seems to like beautiful, intelligent and determined women who have their own careers and lives.

Harry is going to find it hard when Meghan has to go back to work in April. He has probably gotten used to her being around everyday.

We don't know for sure if they've been together all this time or not. Nobody's talking.

You have absolutely no way of proving that statement whatsoever. I assume you are basing it on what little we have seen of it in the papers and that has been precious little, and yet you believe it's only "physical".

I don't understand the insistence of bringing Harry's relationship down to it's lowest possible denominator. "Physical" is just code for sex and nothing else any yet the erratic demands of both his and her positions woud actually lead one to expect that they have been physically apart more than together and staying in contact using text, email and skype.

We don't know if they are conducting an old-fashioned romance with love letters (or emails) or what. I think everyone deserves a little romance in their life . . . and I'm not talking about sex! However did our parents and grandparents manage to sustain a relationship without shacking up first? Many spent their engagements and early marriages parted by war, and yet their relationships survived.

Well then if they've been together this entire time?

I wasn't talking about sex either. You don't marry someone just because you're physically attracted to them. Looks fade. Obviously, it takes a lot more like others have said for a lasting marriage. That is why I said it was crazy to get engaged so soon, but this isn't my choice. It's just a discussion.

Comparing it to elder generations, well this isn't just a normal marriage. This marriage is also joining a public firm with many responsibilities and requires each member to behave a certain way, including keeping your political opinions to yourself. Can an outspoken and opinionated person fit in?

Harry won't have any problem with Meghan not wanting to be in the limelight.

IMO this union will end badly. [edit]

I've decided not to post on this topic anymore. I feel Harry has made his choice and the relationship is too intense for common sense.

I've been following this discussion and find some of the points of view rather off beat. Harry and Meghan are both in their 30's and both have had previous romances. They are not immature kids. You do not need a long time to know if you are suited to each other. You do need to have an adult attitude. I met my husband on Saturday, got engaged on Monday and married 3 months latter. Yes, that was 57 years ago and we are still going strong. We got married knowing we did not know everything about the other, but we did know that we could talk things out and resolve issues as they came up. We were the same religion, both wanted a family and had good examples to follow. When I met him I felt like I came home. I had dated a lot and had been engaged before. The night I met him we talked all night. I don't know Harry or Meghan, and I don't know if they have that kind of connection, but it is possible. I understand that his being royal and their having to live that life changes the picture, but I hope they both have that adult attitude. I wish them well no matter what their decision is.

Unfortunately, it seems to me that Meghan being an actress looms very large with people who dislike her. Meghan goes out to buy groceries --oh that's a pap walk because it was near DM offices, she doesn't wear gloves when buying flowers-- well obviously she has a contract with a jewellery site so she's trying to flog their rings while having her bare hands photographed holding the flowers.
Actress automatically = self publicist, of course!

She dared to post bananas and an elephant on The Tig when the story broke of the romance--what a publicity hound, (actually, the people commenting on this used another worse expression). Meghan knows Piers Morgan, -- well, he's the lowest of the low isn't he and hated, so , you're known by the company you keep aren't you, and she must have been angling for an article. Meghan knows administrators of Soho House--she must have been a hostess there. All without proof but it just goes on and on and on.

If she was really what many have accused her of she would have been out a hundred times more when in London getting her photo taken every day. Oh but she's hiding at Nott Cott.

What's she doing there 24/7, they ask. Enticing our prince into her web with her sinister magical powers, obviously. Poor boy. Well actually, many can't make out whether Harry's 'too dumb' to see her manipulative ways but most believe it's her drawing him in like some fish on a hook!

If she was a gold digger she would have taken money from her husband. No, say the Twitter crowd, her exes are just waiting to spill the beans for the right money. All this has about as much veracity as the assertions that there are dozens of nude photos of Meghan in raunchy poses about to be released on the Internet. They haven't arrived yet after weeks and weeks and IMO aren't likely to because they just don't exist.

In fact a lot of what has been said about Meghan has less to do with racism and a lot to do with dislike of her for whatever perceived reason and the sheer nastiness that flows from that conclusion.

I think people have always had WAY too many expectations of who Harry would marry. I think they expected a Nobel Prizewinner with UN diplomatic back history and a multi-million dollar business that spans nations.

Oh, and she has to have a title with a middle class background and is a virgin, or close to it.

Just way too many expectations.

I think Meg will be just fine as a consort to Harry and it's not like she is at all going to be a bad influence. At least she knows how to keep her relationship out of her social media work and I admire how she goes for what she wants.

The moderators have decided to reopen this thread, with the following points to be kept at the forefront of thought when posting:

1) We will not tolerate any even slightly racist remark.
2) Likewise, we will not tolerate any accusations of calling other posters racist.
3) ANY piece of information/detail/news MUST be accompanied by a source, or it will be deleted. "My friend in London said..." does not count.
4) Tumblr is not a valid source - we would prefer if you all refrain from discussing matters from Tumblr here.
5) And - vitally - you are all to treat each other with the respect you would like to receive yourself. Respect that there are posters who like Meghan, there are posters who don't, and there are posters who are neutral. Everyone is entitled to an opinion.

Any posts that do not follow the above instructions will be removed without notice by the moderating team. Should multiple instances of breaking these instructions occur, members will face a suspension of their posting privileges.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry attend friend's wedding* | Daily Mail Online

Great to see some new photos of the couple, and in the Jamaican sunshine no less. The whole gang's there and no doubt there will be a lot of celebrating. An old friend's holiday in a sunny locale. A great way to debut the relationship further for Harry and Meghan.

There we have it folks. Harry and Meghan together at a best friend's wedding. Its so nice that they can meet up for something like this in a beautiful, sunny location to celebrate the marriage of friends. What I really liked and how it showed the closeness between friends is that Harry was listed in the wedding program as just being "Harry Wales". Tells me that titles and status didn't matter one bit for this occasion.

Harry and Meghan do make a good looking couple together and look extremely happy to be in each other's company.

I expect that now they're ready to be out and about in public together and that tells me that the times alone have paid off for the two of them and they're ready to walk together no matter where the road takes them.

I wouldn't call taking her to a private wedding being out and about just yet. It certainly is a step in the right direction. But I wouldn't be expecting her suddenly attending public events with Harry. The wedding is along the lines of lunch out with friends in London or her staying at the palace, something intended to be private.

But great to see them out enjoying. I am sure Harry enjoyed introducing her to friends she hasn't met yet. And no more jokes about what bridesmaid he will hit on would be a perk.

Well I just saw the latest pics and as I suspected, these two shine in candid shots. The hand holding, Meghan smiling with her arm around Harry...they certainly look like a couple falling in love and not afraid to show it. Really nice to see.
