    I fear that they are going to be Rosie/Camfo cross breeds:|
    I think Pembroke have some weird system where there are bizarre multiple-parent families - I think Rosie at least is married to more than one person.

    Three people I know around my age are getting married... one this summer (she graduates on Friday or thereabouts), one the next, and one the year after that probably.
    Who are all these people? Surely not all Sidneyites? I assume one is Cathy but can't guess the others.

    There's something I heard specifically regarding marriage. Say that if you get married, you can get one of those rooms for two people.
    At Sidney you can marry, but college don't provide rooms for married couples. By this I assume that you'd be able to take a single room, but there are very few double rooms so they aren't available to undergraduates. There was a comment piece in the student press about one of the guys getting married and being kicked out of college for that very reason, though I'm not sure what college he's from.

    i doubt (though I could be wrong) that you could actually be kicked out of college, unless that was a punishment (for getting married without asking permission or getting married if it wasn't allowed)

    If permission was sought or it was a college marriage was ok at it would probably be more like "you can stay, but you have to have a single room and your wife, who's not at this college, can't live here" "oh. bummer. I guess we'll move out then".

    That's what I meant by kicked out of college, rather than being sent down. Sorry for the confusion.

    fair does, it just sounded like they actually forced him to leave rather than giving him an option to stay in college he just didn't like.

    In fairness they could have done. The article was rather ambigious and I'm only going from memory. I think it's more likely that they gave him an unrealistic option, however.

    surely you'd have to be completely moronic to get married while at university - why do people have so much of a lack of cynicism?

    eh, it's not that unrealistic. If everyone else can put up with not living with their longterm boyfriends or girlfriends I think they can too. they knew the options beforehand, they shouldn't expect being married to magically grant them college privileges others don't get.

    I just don't understand why you'd get married and not be together properly like that. Surely you could wait a bit longer? That said, I'm probably just biased because the guy writing the comment was so angry about it. I have no intention of marrying during university so it's unlikely to be an issue I'd have to seriously consider. Those that do are certainly in the minority.

    Duhhhhhhhhhhhhh, if you're married you can have sex! who cares about living together?!

    I agree about waiting longer. The only things I can see are:
    1) You really want your student support status not to depend on your parents
    2) Your spouse-to-be could be deported if you didn't get married asap
    3) your spouse-to-be is terminally ill and you want to get married before he or she dies. although if that happened to me I don't think I would stay at uni.
    4) some bizarre thing to get an inheritance or something
    5) you're a horny christian

    ETA: I've been with my bf for over 4 years now and it's definitely a very serious thing. but I'm still not going to get married before I leave uni unless something really unexpected happens. if we're still together when I'm finished with uni we'll probably move in together and if that goes OK then think about getting married. what's the point in rushing into something?
