    I don't see why his marriage is anyone elses concern. Good for him. Happy for them both.

    I'm really pleased that Fry has found himself some happiness, as everyone who's followed him knows the life he's led and the torture his mental illnesses have put him through across the years. The big reason so many people are against this marriage is because of:

    a) the media, who've so far managed to show approximately 0 decent photos of the two, opting instead to show pictures where Fry is happy and laughing, but Spencer appears scared/ solemn. It's very easy to be fooled into believing Fry's the only one happy out of the two, or that Spencer is only in it for the money or any other negative opinion you may gather, but please imagine what your reaction would be like had you read an article not accompanied by a suggestive photo.

    b) subtle homophobia. Would a 57 year old straight man get such scrutiny for marrying a younger woman?
