  1. Hi

    My compliments for you beautiful website what you have made.
    Please deport the bloody woman and that idiot she is married to. Preferably to Mars. Obsessed with fame and money or what?


  2. Our religious wedding surrounded by our families and loved ones was a highlight. It was not a commitment we made lightly. As believers, a marriage in church before God was essential for us. Faith is present in both of our lives. I know that she accompanied us during her absence and I have no doubt that she will continue to unite us in the future.
