I'm sure the wife had to fake a hemming and hawing response before she hesitantly agreed.
Then she ran outside and screamed "Thank You LORD!!!" at the top of her lungs.
He's hideous. Isn't gluttony one of the deadly sins?
If he were smart he join the Ruthenian Catholic Church instead. Then he can continue fucking his wife and still be qualified to do all Roman Catholic rituals in a bona fide Roman Catholic church. The Ruthenes report to the pope, same as the Romans.
And the pope said married Episcopal priests in England could become Catholic without taking celibacy vows.
In short, the whole thing is a bit of grandstanding organized around the fact that this is a big closet queen who doesn't want to be married anymore.
Well, the probability. Of course I can't say "Fact" for sure.
