It's her first time
« on: April 01, 2019, 09:36:57 AM »

SC came back from Thailand when I told her I was finally divorced and we could make a plan - at last..

I NEVER expected to have to wait over five years and SC had 'acquaintances' who suggested I might just be stringing her along ..(I guess they met one of our married members who can't keep away from dating sites to help newbies ? )


SC has never been married and does not want to be married in Russia !


So, where to tie the knot and what is required in 2019?

Cyprus - it is an EU nation and the marriage docs are in ENGLISH (and Greek)

1/ Visit ZAKS and get a 'no impediment to be married doc'   - *I* thought that would take days - but it was 800 Roubles and a 2 hour wait



2/ I need to get such a doc if I marry as an Irishman or Swear an Affidavit in a Cyprus Court if a Brit


3/ SC's no impediment' docs MUST be translated by the Cypriot govt translator

4/ Pay 130 Euros for a licence and present Passports and Birth Certs



For SC finding a dress  is the priority

So you’re finally divorced?

Why doesn’t she want to get married in Russia?

(Moby Congratulations  :thumbsup:

Perhaps DogSoldier can be your best man?

Rosco can serve the haggis!

Manny I am confident can provide a swift kick to your posterior to move you to the altar.

Wiz will share his profound knowledge of Greek love making.

In any event make sure which ever dress SC selects that it is easy to remove.

May all your future ups and downs take place horizontally!

Thank you, AvHdB



Manny or Andrewfi could be my best man - as they know so much about my life

Markje can be the chauffeur - as long as it is a fast BMW

Steveboy will bring a selection of Bridesmaids

BB will bring a harem - taking "plus 1" to a new level

BillyB will do an impression of eating his own hat

Rosco will be THAT guest that keeps dropping in one liners that has folks rolling their eyes

I was thinking Wiz as photographer - as he will filch any photos, anyway

Sting123 / Guile will ask if he can bring a VK fwend and fail to turn up - as usual - when he has promised

DS, will get stopped at passport control and miss the wedding while being interviewed - but arrive drunk for the reception

Chris will be the Maitre'D

Sparky114 will make a guest appearance as long as it is all inclusive ..

AvHdB ?:  He will interview guests to ask if it is true that I have met and rescued Jeremy Clarkson and report on festivities

Brass will gate crash and ask to see my Blue Beret

TonTon will do the bar

Donhollio will check any fish were caught on a line ;)

Herrie will handle the organisation behind the scenes

Shakey will be taking bets on how many weeks we'll last

TomT will ask the bride for the first dance

I was thinking Wiz as photographer - as he will filch any photos, anyway


Don't worry if you can't come ...we'll host a reception in 'Manny's village' in the UK

So you’re finally divorced?

Indeed, finally... 


Why doesn’t she want to get married in Russia?

''Anywhere but Russia'.. not romantic'' ..plus the Church were not keen to marry a divorcee and she did not want to marty in a small Church in the Mountains, which was siggested by Father Sergey who was prepared to 'take on ' the establishment...

You did not marry Olga in Russia, as I recall.

This is her first time and she wants sun, sea and white rocks at sunset....))

Her choice..

But,  'well spotted'..there is a good chance most folks will give her a pass on the traditional assocation with virginity..as they might with most brides ?

Well Noby you can try harder to be a better bullshitter….. as your proposed Best Man…. “Manny” appears to have some doubts and hard questions, me too!

Quote
I was thinking Wiz as photographer - as he will filch any photos, anyway

Why do you post twice such lies……when you know very well it was you who invite me to visit your Face book page and you deliberately or out of stupidity, left the door open to your Flirc files. It only took one click to download all your albums for future reference and I am not stupid, as you are, to use any of them without your written permission. They are saved in case I need them to protect myself in future not to watch your cover girl SC or your wife V.

My email is: [snip] ... and I will only believe you that you got your divorce ONLY  if you sent me an official copy or copy of the Certificate of Non impediment and I promise to apologise, publicly, for doubting your sincerity!

I guess your post here is a bit of fun and have no problem with that but any observant person would doubt that you are really planning to marry your Russian friend.

It is over a year now since you last been to Russia but meeting your cover girl only outside Russia. I guess your Russian friend in that photo at Sochi or his people at his old firm, keeping truck of your activities…… and tourist travels…..to Sochi, Abkhazia, Georgia, Cyprus, Thailand, North Vietnam etc. I am sure the Turks are not oblivious to your visits to the unrecognised state of North Cyprus  and you travel activities.

All the photos you posted….. appear o be taken in Hotel rooms…… and you are not around. Is it another modelling Job for your Russian Friend?

It looks that what you are pointing out to us…. You plan is to use Cyprus again ……and bring your “so called New Bride “ back to UK via the Back stop of Northern Ireland.!

I think you will be unlucky as it appears Mrs Theresa May is hell bent to make a BREXIT without a deal……which  may help  you if you move fast and your fairy tale story it’s just that  a “Fairy Tale Story”.

Thanks for proving my point re your 'suitability' to be trusted with images...   and your inability to digest factual info ..

My email is:  [snip] ... and I will only believe you that you got your divorce ONLY  if you sent me an official copy or copy of the Certificate of Non impediment and I promise to apologise, publicly, for doubting your sincerity!

Dear Wiz, How many times must I tell you that I have no wish to receive or be in 1-1 communication with you - public is best .. and your 'consent / belief' are not required .. THAT is reserved for SC and the marriage authorities  :coffeeread:

You are truly an ( best not posted word )  to doubt such a statement



I guess your post here is a bit of fun and have no problem with that but any observant person would doubt that you are really planning to marry your Russian friend.

Classic, Wiz daftness...

It is over a year now since you last been to Russia but meeting your cover girl only outside Russia. I guess your Russian friend in that photo at Sochi or his people at his old firm, keeping truck of your activities…… and tourist travels…..to Sochi, Abkhazia, Georgia, Cyprus, Thailand, North Vietnam etc. I am sure the Turks are not oblivious to your visits to the unrecognised state of North Cyprus  and you travel activities.

You'll no doubt be asking for a copy of my RU visas - given the bollox you just posted ... ;)


All the photos you posted….. appear o be taken in Hotel rooms…… and you are not around. Is it another modelling Job for your Russian Friend?

I didn't take them - I am currently in the UK -  but they are at the homes / premises of those selling the dresses - your observation skills at 'work', again ? ;)


It looks that what you are pointing out to us…. You plan is to use Cyprus again ……and bring your “so called New Bride “ back to UK via the Back stop of Northern Ireland.!

I think you will be unlucky as it appears Mrs Theresa May is hell bent to make a BREXIT without a deal……which  may help  you if you move fast and your fairy tale story it’s just that  a “Fairy Tale Story”.

 :evilgrin0002: tiphat

Wiz, we never expected V to sign agreement to end the marriage before the last minute ( late May was when I could apply for the Absolute in default )  and - once again - SC has no wish to reside in the UK ..

Who knows.. we might not crash out and the Family Permit visa system will still be in play - possibly a bonus - but not planned ..

For sure, there is supposed to be a large element of ( non evil) humour in the post that elicited your 'response' - but the Divorce, and certificate of non impediment are factual

Do I take it that you do not wish to be the official photographer ?;)

Wiz/Moby perhaps your petty squabbles have a more appropriate thread? It is sad that you two can only argue over water that poured over the dam some 10 plus years ago.

Time to move on in my opinion.

I agree. Wiz, enough of that nonsense now methinks. Moby, dont feed the troll.

Why doesn’t she want to get married in Russia?

You did not marry Olga in Russia, as I recall.

I didn't, but in hindsight - if I knew then what I know now - I probably would have done.

On the dress: Number 2 looks OK, but it's all much of a muchness as they only wear them for a day.

Moby, I hope you are both very happy.  tiphat
