Serial monogamy, promiscuity and celibacy are chosen by many in place of a single partner for life. Thankfully, there is a growing acknowledgement and tolerance of diversity, including attitudes to same-sex relationships.
Who could not be touched by the obvious happiness of the Princess Royal as she marries for a second time? Or the dignity with which the Prince and Princess of Wales have replanned their and their children's relationships? Or, indeed, the life-long marriage of the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh? Rather than seeing failure, we should see in the Royal Family a symbol of an ever-greater freedom to choose.
