    Yeah. I did that. On the plus side she bore me two kids but she also made my life hell. In the end, we divorced.

    The Paris Hilton angle of this story is obvious, right?

    yea did the same thing. Getting married to a bitch just brings on further curses. On the plus side after the divorce I got a well cushy I.T. job. So theirs the I.T. angle for me.

    Sopouse abuse

    Maybe it's just me but considering his past I predict spousal abuse in this relationship.

    Surely the big question is - can the dog cook?

    Nah, probably make a dogs dinner of the whole thing. He'll complain and he'll find himself in the dog house

    Shouldn't someone notify the RSPCA

    Wouldn't non-consensual sex (even if they do it doggy-style) with a bitch count as abuse? Did anyone actually hear the dog say "I do"?

    Isn't this a forced marriage?

    I think this bitch may actually prefer death to the punishment that is being meated out to her... or perhaps she'll just bite his balls off!

    Some of you need to take this seriously...

    ... he's just married something that's not going to talk back (well at least not that he can understand).

    Foreplay could be a bit dicey !!

    (I think one of you has picked up my coat by mistake, I'm still moving towards the door though.....)

    (...... nope it's cold outside, I really need my jacket)

    good to see he's marrying a female dog- Nothing wrong with his sexuality then

    Psycho dog murderer, I wouldn't let any puppy of mine wed that scum.

    Bad news

    Having just consulted the karmic conditions of the curse it is my unfortunate duty to inform him that it cannot be lifted until the marriage has been consumated.

    Gotta watch out for animal curses.

    Or should that be "cur" ses. :-)=)

    This happened in the Mahabarat. The exiled hero Arjuna was out hunting and shot a stag who was mating. The stag cursed him for this dishonourable act of coitus interruptus, paying him back in kind by forcing him to live as a woman for seven years or so. He spent most of this time as a transvestite dancing instructor, but he did manage to carry off the look, as his enemies were unable to recognise him when they came calling,
