Picture nbr. 2 shows the bride and groom each with a cigarette tucked between two fingers. So Marie's a smoker, eh? Something else she shares with the Danish royals. Speaks French, smokes...sounds like a match made in heaven!
Didn't Fred stopped smoking at Mary's bequest AFTER they got married? Does anyone know when Fred stopped smoking? The smoking issue is one of the reasons that I find Mary such a fake. Ok, if Mary complained about Fred's smoking while they were dating and asked him to stopped while they were dating, then I give her much credit. But, if she only complained and asked him to stopped AFTER they got married, then this is just one of many instances that shows Mary's deception and how she played Fred like a fiddle. I know a lot of people who feel that smoking is a deal breaker before the relationship even begins. They would absolutely not go out with someone who smokes. But, there are a lot of people, especially women, who have problems with a certain behaviors with their potential spouse, but they don't say anything until after they close the deal. I don't like people like this. They are devious and deceptive and will continue to say and do whatever it takes to get what they want. Although some may find this example of smoking such a little thing, but I feel that it speaks to larger issues about a person's character.
Two smokers like M & H and Marie and Joachim are fine as long as it works for them. But, obviously it didn't work for Mary from the beginning. did she keep quiet or voiced her concern once she felt that she had more power to get Fred to change?
