Despite Bobby Ang's example, chess and marriage don't always mix. A friend of mine, former winner of a section in the Doeberl Cup, recently returned from his country of birth all hitched plus a baby! This fellow is quite a competent player with a rating of near 2000 (ACF). But the missus has completely forbidden chess. Disaster!
Totally ignoring this lesson, another mate, also a strong player, has now moved back to his homeland to look for a wife.
I am left with only one question. What is wrong with these people?
