A tale I heard
Comedian Bob Mortimer on marrying his partner of 22 years, Lisa:
"I found out I needed heart surgery on the Thursday, so I made a will on the Friday. Found out I couldn't get married to Lisa because you have to give 21 days notice. But my consultant said I was incredibly ill, so the registrar in London - I don't live in London - gave me permission to get married on the Monday. There was just me, the wife and our two kids in the registry office, that's it."
