Yesterday in my post about the wedding band I was kind of making light of the fact that by reading between the lines it sounded as if Megan McAllister and her family had not given up on the wedding, just that it wasn't going to happen in August. I was just having fun with the words, but it turns out that I was right. Despite the fact that Phillip told his family to give up on him, and that more news was coming and they should move to California, Megan just keeps standing by her man.
In a way it is really admirable and shows that when she loves someone she doesn't let something like murder charges get in the way of that love. So, I'm guessing a fight about leaving the toilet seat up is not going to cause a divorce.
That is the positive. On the negative, it is really starting to be creepy. She released a statement that her father read yesterday. I'm assuming her dad or her mom or someone in the family must be rational, but they really do think he is innocent. Does her dad? He read the statement and I would think he would have tried to talk her out of the statement if he thought the guy was guilty.
Here is what she said yesterday.
"To me and my family, he is a loving and caring person and in the eyes of the law and the constitution, he is innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt," she said in a statement Monday. "I just can only hope that the criminal justice system will not be overwhelmed and persuaded by what is being put forth in the media. In the past two short weeks, my life and what I hoped my life to be has dramatically changed. I also love my fiancé and I will continue to support him throughout this legal process."
I don't think she has been questioned by the police yet. That is supposed to happen this week. I'm guessing when they start asking her questions and showing her or telling her things that all of this support might slowly fade away into nothingness. I understand that this is a huge shock for her and if true, probably would make her feel stupid for not seeing it because this is the guy she was supposed to marry. As long as she holds out hope he is innocent than she doesn't have to look in the mirror. That has to be a very painful proposition and so I sympathize with why she is holding off on doing that.
