Daily Mirror Blind Item

Which supposedly strait-laced couple, who harp on about the joys of domesticity, actually enjoy an open marriage - regularly bringing home new partners to experiment with?

Ben Affleck & Jennifer Garner!

Ok, I know, I know - this is the Daily Mirror so chances are the couple are British but I HAD to. It's a sick compulsion. Honestly. :-)

Posh and David?

Hmmm, anyone have an "in" with the Mirror so we could ask them to make their blinds a little bit more vague? :) If Ent's blinds are always "Affleck," the Mirror's are always "all of them."

I'm wondering if the mis-spelling if the word "strait" in strait-laced is a clue?

*Miss_P* said...

That's how it's spelt!

Nigella Lawson and her husband - she's a domestic goddess! or Jamie and Jools Oliver or Gordon and Tania Ramsey????
Maybe Richard & Judy?

Mooshki said...

"...Gordon and Tania Ramsey????"

I wouldn't mind in on that party - they're both so freakin' adorable!!!

Hmmm . . . if they were talking American couples I would guess Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith.

Anthea Turner and grant whatsisface!

Judi said...

Yes, PsychoticState, apparently Will and Jada have confirmed they have an open marriage. But I think this blind is probably a UK couple.

This may be a few days old, but here is an article (from Australian Woman's Day?) on Will and Jada's open marriage.

Yawn.

I think its spelled "Straight-laced" - but it could be one of those words that either way is acceptable.

Please forgive me for what I am about to do. I am a serious nerd and can't help myself.

The word "strait" means narrow or restricted, or can refer to a narrow passage, as in:

strait-laced

straits of ____ (eg, straits of Hormuz)

strait-jacket

the expressions "straitened circumstances" and "dire straits"

FYI. Sadly, I have no idea about the answer to this blind.

Sylvia said...

I would say George Strait but doubt it very much even though he is/was known for getting involved with other women.

Lori said...

Gwynnie and Chris?

kimi said...

Will & Jada, and yawn. I think everyone does know this though so I dont think there thought of as straight lace anymore.

I think that open marriages are pretty common nowadays...and I suspect that they always have been.

It's just that now we have the dating sites and Craigslist and the like so we can see it for ourselves.

I kinda like the idea myself...as long as both agree and maybe you need some rules, too.

I'm a serious nerd too so...

Merriam Webster:

Main Entry: strait·laced
Variant(s): or straight·laced \ˈstrāt-ˈlāst\
Function: adjective
Date: 1554

Its an accepted variant :-P

Willow said...

Hum .. sounds like Dire Straits for whomever this couple is.

plot said...

dianne p, thanks for the clue in. Because of your nerdiness, I learnt something!

I'll will always use "strait" properly in future. It's kind of a neat word.
