Sperm Donor Relationships 2017

The Crown Jewels

Did anyone watch "The Last 100 Days of Diana" on TV Sunday night? I remembered the news coverage of Princess Diana's life and feeling sorry for someone who thought she had found her Prince Charming only to discover he was in love with another woman ... [In today's world it could easily have been another man].

Unrequited love creates many soap operas. Diana and Charles married on July 29, 1981. Four months later on November 17, 1981 - from the soap opera "General Hospital" - Luke and Laura wed in a ceremony just as famous. Both marriages - fiction and non-fiction - were doomed to drama.

I remember doing a read on Charles and Diana as the world watched her walk down the aisle and knowing it was doomed from the start - too young, too many issues. Their marriage is what I call a "Sperm Donor Relationship" in which two people come together - have karma to create children - after which it's over rather quickly or they do a slow fade while making each other crazy in the process.

Present day ...

We arrive at 2017 and the potential for Diana's son Harry to marry American actress Meghan Markle who I adore from the TV show "Suits." Recently, Harry has admitted to working on his unresolved issues from the time of his Mum's death.

Is Harry marriage material?
Is he being pressured by his family to marry?
Will Meghan adapt well to his lifestyle away from friends and family?
Is this another Sperm Donor Relationship?
