So this is a story of a prostitute-BC avers.
Clearly as such,she surrendered her prunus avium in a bygone day.
BC tells us her prossy bride now runs a flower shop.
Had it all been a story of yesterday-in a 'deflower(ing) shop the lilly would have been truly gilded-ergo,instead of limp yellow chrysanthiumums,the prossy was a purveyor of 'cherry' (blossoms).
Peony is/was a rose and the flower of many Chinese provinces.Relevant economy wise and of course for the east London connotation of money-a pony was the starting price for the hitman to take out the snitch/grass.
I just saw the market over 24 hours from being deflower to flower...

Why is it strange/ - half of all marriages are a form of prostitution anyway except they are limited to one client in exchange for sex, cooking and cleaning (well, if you're lucky! ).

The really lucky people are those who marry someone who respects and loves them regardless of their profession, income, nationality etc.

That said, I don't think I could date a hooker or stripper (dated a stripper once - super high maintenance). Cabin crew tend to have inflated views of themselves too and most are not known for being trustworthy and faithful.

I reckon it's more than half when you factor in those that have gone bad but the misses just hangs around for an easy free life.

Couldn't date a mortician.No explanation required methinks.
Second:French Horn players.
I went out with a girl who played the French Horn with a very famous orchestra.
Doesn't sound too bad does it? but every time we kissed she would clench her fist and shove it up my arse.

You're probably right there. And given many cultures still have some form of dowry in place (which has it's roots in the romantic ancient custom of buying a daughter from her parents and being expected to provide her food and board in exchange for her service around the house and in the bedroom plus baby making facilities) I wonder if marriage isn't due for a redefinition based on something more modern like not treating women like property and men like we are a bit more than a pot of gold.

Without wanting to sound too cynical (probably too late for that!) Half the world's marriage customs are rooted in this concept of owning women and making men providers. This was fine when women were not really expected to do any kind of serious work outside the house and were limited professionally but today it's making men and women miserable by creating false expectations. Few women are traditional housewives and few men are solid providers based on the numbers of dual working parent homes we see.

Still, the bottom line is whatever consenting adults do is their business...I just think people will respect each other more if they pair up because of things like character, values and personality (heck, even looks) rather than what things they will get from the relationship.
