In his latest attempt to undermine the institution of marriage, Playboy founder Hugh Hefner – 86 years old – married his 26-year-old girlfriend, Crystal Harris, at the Playboy mansion. This makes Hefner’s third marriage. Harris tells the romantic story of their engagement:
"I moved into the Mansion really young. I was 21 or 22. I needed to explore out there and take the time away. The time away really helped make me realize that where I'm meant to be is here with Hef. Hef cares for me so much, and I care for him so much. We love each other. I felt like I needed to be home and this is home for me."
No wonder so many Americans think the institution of marriage is a mockery. When young fortune- and fame-seekers marry doddering old promiscuous corpses, it is.
