One of the universal truths is that life is change. People that are very well suited to each other, love each other and seem like the "fairy tale couple" can and often do find that as the years roll by, they change and grow in separate directions or they grow together. I know this from experience. I divorced after 20 years of marriage. We grew apart and went in separate directions. It couldn't have been foreseen on the day of our wedding.

Marriage takes work and commitment and being able to compromise. The wedding is the celebration of a promise to do their best to do just that. Even in the most mature of commitments, the promises made at the wedding never guarantees happily ever after. Its the marriage itself that prevails over the years through ups and downs and trials and failures and those "I don't like you much right now" days.

None of us can really know or even begin to understand what the emotions, the little things that go bump in the night or the crazy little idiosyncrasies that either Meghan or Harry have nor can we know for certain just how well they "fit" with each other as that's something they're very careful to not let the public be privy to. We hardly even catch a glimpse of them together. How can we really pass judgment on the very little that we do know?

Relationships and marriages do not come with a step by step instruction book on how to guarantee a successful union with a money back guarantee if it doesn't work.

I just have a bad feeling about this couple don't see a happy ever. I think because a royal marriage is so much more than just being "madly in love ". It's a life time of working for your in-laws , doing what your told, being on show every time you step out the door etc etc it takes more than being "in love ". As the children of the Queens 3 out of 4 royal marriages not lasting shows. Anyway JMO as I'm not into fairytales

Prince Harry: Relationship Suggestions and Musings 2016-2017

I just can't see this relationship go all the way. I do think she is the wrong choice on so many levels.
IF they do get married, I won't lose sleep over it and wish them all the best.
But I think (and hope) a wedding is still a long way off.

Come to think of it, when I was 32, I'd been married 11 years and had 3 kids by that time.

Hi all, I'm new to this forum! I've been lurking for quite a while, but now I'm excited to join the fun.

I'm still trying to understand how 32 is too young for marriage? 22, yes, but 32?

That's up to the person getting married (or not) to decide. Really not for others to determine.

By 32 I had 3 children and had been married 11 years also! Still married to the same guy almost 29 years now.

Perhaps people should calm down a bit here.

Take a visit to the 80th Birthday Thread of King Harald and Queen Sonja and read about Norway's beloved King and Queen instead.

Maybe this is one reason why Wills married this boring Katie: He might have been afraid to end up like Harry....
1. How do you know that?

2 She's not boring.

Harry is not an ordinary person and the woman he marries will be a member of the British royal family. And therefore we must respect that people have different opinions.

Some like this relationship, others does not.

Let's move on from the debate about what age people should be married - it is irrelevant to the topic of the thread. The same goes with regard to the character and personality of other members of the Royal Family - we don't need to compare Prince Harry's current girlfriend with his sister-in-law.

If they continue dating we'll see them out an about again eventually. I find it quite amusing that they are so good and staying under the radar. I love seeing the media get a spike in their wheel.

I think the phrase booty call to describe this relationship is mute especially since the Prince himself has called her his girlfriend. If he wanted a booty call I'm sure he had plenty less expensive options in London that do not require a plane ticket and hours of travel.

I do think he's making it very clear that he wants to be with Meg and will likely marry her. Men do not go out of their way to reach out to someone who is just a booty call. He would have dropped her long ago if she hadn't meant anything to him.

I'm interested to hear who would be a perfect, well bred partner for Harry. Who would be the suitable parents? What should her job be?

IMO her job is actually irrelevant, because, as said multiple times in this thread, she'll have to stop working once engaged. Demanding that his wife should be a freeking brain surgeon and nothing less, but be ready to walk away from her job the minute Harry exchanges numbers with her, is just cazy. I also am going to make a wild guess, that if the press started digging, from every family we'd find at least one crazy drunk uncle, or a cousin with a past DUI, or some relative who had made nasty comments on social media. These well bred families aren't exempt.

I'm thinking, that if Harry finds a woman, who he loves and likes, who feels the same about him, who respect each other, and she's willing to stop working, move to UK, live under the microscope that the Royal Family live under, and still love and like him and that life, he's lucky. Everything else IMO is extra, that can be worked on.

I also think, that Harry is a smart person, who has a fairly good judgement, he's lived and seen a lot of life, and doesn't need strangers worrying about him and warning him about a woman he's dating. He's not an 18 year old. He's an adult man, he's seen first hand more about the pitfalls of marriage going wrong, than people give him credit for.

If and when Harry marries, I think it'll be to someone who'll be a great wife to him, and who'll fit into the Royal wife role well too. And it's not going to be because fans worried about him and the wrong women, but becauae ge has a good head on his shoulders, and good group of people around him, too.
