Fact of the Day: Norwegian Love

While still a prince, King Harald V of Norway wanted to marry a commoner named Sonja Haraldsen. This was controversial, but he gave his father a choice. He could either marry Sonja or not marry at all and end the monarchy eventually. His father let him marry Sonja.

I'd rather marry for love than political reasons. Times are slowly improving.
