British Couple Get Married On First Date

December 27, 2018

Finding love on dating sites isn’t easy, but one couple in Britain believes they found their perfect match, and didn’t waste any time making things legal. 

Sarah Elliott and Paul Edwards matched on the dating app Bumble on December 15th, and after just a few days of chatting they went on their first date December 23rd, where they took one heck of a leap of faith. Despite never meeting face-to-face, the pair decided to meet at Gatwick airport in full wedding outfits and hopped a plane to Las Vegas where they got hitched.

“We instantly clicked - there was an undeniable connection,” Sarah says. “I feel like Paul's my best friend already.”

 While this may seem out there to most people, Sarah insists they didn’t jump into things lightly. “We're not looking at everything through rose-tinted glasses. We know it will be challenging, but we're willing to work together,” she says. “I'm usually such a logical person, but all the rules have been thrown out.”

The idea to get hitched came up during their second phone conversation, and Sarah admits that she thought the idea was “crazy,” but she believes her marriage will last. “Our marriage will work because we're completely open and honest about everything in our lives. I have faith,” she says. “We can talk about absolutely everything - there's nothing I'd feel uncomfortable discussing with him because I know there's no judgment there.”

Travelers Have Mixed Feelings About Animals On Planes

December 27, 2018

These days we’re constantly hearing about people trying to sneak weird animals on plans as emotional support animals. It’s gotten so crazy that many airlines have introduced strict rules about what animals are allowed on aircrafts, and it seems the public has mixed feelings on the subject.

A new survey finds that 54% of folks believe only certified animals should be allowed in airplane cabins, yet 45% believe emotional support animals should also be allowed, although another 45% say only traditional animals, like dogs and cats, should be allowed as service or ESAs.

If animals are allowed on planes, most people think other passengers should be taken into consideration. In fact, 50% of people believe there should be a designated area in the cabin for people who travel with animals to make it safe for travelers with allergies.

  • But when it comes to non-service animals, most people think airlines need to do better. The poll finds that 58% believe airlines need to make it safer for pets to ride in the cargo area. Meanwhile, another 39% think airlines need to decrease the amount they charge to bring non-service animals on flights.
