"But he is doubly wrong on this. First, this was not what he did in respect of his marriage to Queen May. He didn't walk away with an intent to end his marriage with May. Instead, he wanted to add a second wife and remain married to May as "a proud polygamist". So, one wonders when Yul came upon the theory he is now bandying about."

The lawyer further berated Yul for his views and noted that marriage was not a "beer parlour" for people to walk in and out as they liked without following due procedures.
