Watching the Royal Wedding coverage got me to thinking: every one isn't fit to be a queen. Being a history buff, I've always known that typically when someone of status gets married it's normally for business or political or financial reasons. Way back when, families formed alliances with each other through the betrothal of their children, but they normally didn't marry just anyone off to their children. Typically it was the son that could help the family gain the most who got married to the most virginal and fairest daughter of marrying age.
Unfortunately, the next statement goes against my neo-feminist beliefs but it also takes a very strong and understanding woman to love her husband's faults (i.e. love of women, bad decisions, scandalous behavior) and decide whether to work with him and the relationship or quit. I remember watching a documentary about the royal marriages and when they profiled the divorce of Diana and Charles, the Queen Mother said of Charles' affair "Well...men cheat." No, I don't believe in that statement, but if you look at it from a business prospective she has a point.
When you have a business deal, it is both unethical and not smart to quit the business at the first sign of trouble. That is the reason you sign contracts and go through so many legal red tape to even be able to conduct business....legally. As with a marriage, there is a reason you get a marriage license, it's a contract to be married to your mate. But, everyone is not fit to be in business otherwise everyone would have one. Just like the responsibility of being someone's princess or queen, everyone is not fit. You have to be a certain type of person, with a particular view, and a certain strength to carry that much weight.
