Last week I pointed to the elegant and tasteful engagement announcement of the families of Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophia Hunter. This week we move to another marriage announcement. This time it’s Mr. Charles Manson and Ms Afton Elaine Burton (AKA, Star).
Here’s the official engagement photo:
It’s enough that Charles Manson is in the equation, isn’t it? He’s 80 something and she’s obviously not.
I have never understood why women do the whole my-man’s-in-prision-but-he’s-innocent-no-really-he-is thing. I don’t see semi-annual news stories on men marrying women behind bars.
The money quote: “She said she is interested in working on his case, and marrying him would allow her to get information not available to nonrelatives.”
I smell a book deal coming on.
I’ll be disappointed if that proves to be the reason for the nuptials. I was hoping Charles had found true love at last.
