    I admire him for having the courage to put himself in that financial position, though I think it's a bit stupid.

    When he has so much more to lose financially, and it isn't really necessary it just seems a bit foolhardy. Marriage is usually partly for mutual financial benefit but here he stands to lose a vast amount of money if they divorce.

    He's a horrible fat pervert. He has serious mental health problems as discussed in a recent BBC documentary. He has bipolar disorder too.

    Having found out that his husband to be is only 27, I've now lost all respect and empathy I had for Stephen.

    And what really is hyperbole is the fact that his partner has bloody acne and a teenage haircut! All of which make him appear much younger than 27...

    Breaks the rule of 7, so I don't think much of the pairing itself.. he's still a damn entertaining and clever bloke though

    That paragraph sounds like it sums you up. Why are you stigmatising mental health? And they're both over 21 so it's none of our business what they like to do in their own time.

    How do you know they're not doing a pre-nup?

    Don't come at me with your liberal dogma. You need to actually see Stephen for what he is: a pervert. I know his type. My father was just like him.

    His partner looks like a bloody teenager. Acne, haircut and I bet you he's going to bleed Stephen dry, which will probably push Stephen to suicide. If you've watched his documentary about bi-polar, you'll know that he's tried to commit suicide many times.

    This new toy boy of his will be the death of him. We'll probably read 'Stephen found dead in his apartment. Cause? Suicide' soon.

    He is someone who has struggled with loneliness, so I do hope he finds happiness. However I suspect that in a couple of years he will be talking about how he made a rash decision.

    If this marriage should fail, Stephen will most likely commit suicide.

    Hardly liberal "Dogma," you're just guilty of extreme cynicism. I will wait in anticipation for this so-called future headline.

    Even if they were, pre-nups are not legally binding here.

    Prenuptial agreements have not traditionally been enforced in divorce law in England.

    Legally-speaking the court does not need to respect that.

    That's not hyperbole.
