Sure, we've been raised by mothers who've insisted we know (good-and-well) how to rescue ourselves, but what gal doesn't want a little happily ever after?
So we implore you, William and Kate, give us that fairy tale ending. Make this wedding stick -- even if one of you leaves your royal socks three feet from the royal hamper on a regular basis. Above all, adore each other -- no matter the hour or circumstance.
Of course, if this newest royal marriage does go south, the divorcees can still do some good. Take the oft-divorced Liz Taylor, for example. When Richard Burton proposed, he presented her with a 69-carat Harry Winston diamond engagement ring. The stone, which had once been part of a 240-carat diamond mined in 1966, cost Burton a reported $1 million. But when the couple's marriage dissolved, Taylor sold the ring in 1978, announcing that she planned to fund a hospital in Botswana with the proceeds.
