Vince talks cultural conservative hubris – brings recollections

It was interesting to hear Vince Cable say that his first marriage caused familial strife. The arguments raised – mixed marriages never work and `what will the neighbours think?`. They also spoke of how friends supported them.

This will ring bells with the older LGBT crowd (if not the younger) – `Gay relationships never work` and `what will the neighbours think?`

I think the time when people had to choose who they fell in love with due to the feelings of neighbours whom are not even family members are fortunately have well and truly fallen by the wayside!
