American blonde to marry Swiss Guard

"This isn’t a fairy tale. It’s the true story of a woman from Huntington Beach, California, who fell in love after asking a question of a Swiss Guard while on vacation at the Vatican. "

Re: American blonde to marry Swiss Guard

And there I was thinking the Swiss Guard spent most of their free time indulging in orgies with fellow guards and Vatican priests.

Re: American blonde to marry Swiss Guard

I propose a change of title, for fairness sake.

An American blond marketing manager to marry a Swiss brunet guard.


It doesn't have the same ring to it, does it

Last edited by J.Marple; 29.05.2015 at 14:46. Reason: the guy was male!! so brunet it is, thanks MC

Brunet.

Guards are male, if I am not mistaken.

But I agree, why stereotype the girl. But I don't think she cares, it's a cute story.

Because he's retired from the guard.

A Swiss Vatican Guard with a salary of $20K/year, and a Wells Fargo Marketing Executive from San Diego. Which is digging gold? Is San Diego an impoverished 3rd world place?

Well, she is golden blonde after all.

I suspect the medieval fetish theory, or maybe even the size of that thing.

No way. Plus they have awesome burritos there, not sure why would one move from there.

I wonder if it's the holy setting that attracts.. props.

Re: American blonde to marry Swiss Guard

Orange County Register has the scoop on the couple. They're planning to live in Cali, so no need for her to get a B permit (or deal with Fatca in Switzerland ).

She's from Huntington Beach, which is LA, not San Diego, and she's a marketing manager, not an executive:

Re: American blonde to marry Swiss Guard

if "Swiss Guard, Ledig, Sucht" is even 10% as entertaining as the farmer version, I smell another hit TV show in the works.

On the top of her head, at least. The rest not totally proven yet.

There is a Swiss enclave in Fullerton, California, in case he gets homesick.

But I wager 5 years, and he'll want to move back within 50 meters of Mami, Papi, Oma and Opa.

<very mean, I admit>
