Re: [Prince] Harry and Meghan

I read the results as parents wanting to protect their children from being subject to prejudice, and in the present climate, being in a relationship with a Muslim would likely present the most challenges.

25yrs ago, when my cousin began a relationship with her Algerian Muslim partner, it wasn't as much of an issue as it is now. And it's 30yrs since another cousin did the whole 'Guess Who's Coming To Dinner' scene on my uncle. She took her black, St.Lucian/Jamaican, Jewish, divorced, single parent, 15yrs her senior boyfriend home for dinner with her parents (we'd all met him except for her dad), and they're still very happily married.

Totally know what you mean!

You should have seen the look on the face of my friends bi-sexual, disabled Jewish mother when he brought home his new partner - a Muslim transvestite, 10 years older and with multiple STD's!

Of course now they all get along like a house on fire!
