Paul McCartney weds Nancy Shevell - and no animals were harmed
Paul McCartney, once member of the most famous rock band in history, has taken a wife for the third time.

The ex-Beatle turned vegan is a known animal-rights activist. His first wife Linda McCartney started a line of meat-free foods. The line, Linda McCartney Foods, was purchased in 2006 by Hain Foods and is available at most supermarkets.

McCartney met American Nancy Shevell from New Jersey back in 2008. We were sure it was love at first sight. After, all, McCartney is still the cute Beatle. One small thing, however, stood in the path of true love -- like most Americans, Shevell liked her meat. But, according to sources, Shevell turned vegetarian shortly after the couple started dating in order to be with McCartney. That's love.

The couple wed yesterday in Old Marleybone Town Hall in London, where McCartney married wife Linda 42 years earlier. The bride wore vegan shoes designed by Paul's daughter Stella McCartney.

They then hosted an intimate three-course vegan dinner with two cakes (one chocolate and one vegan) at McCartney's home. Guests included Ringo Starr and wife Barbara Bach, George Harrison's widow Olivia and Barbara Walters, according to The London Telegraph.

Wonderful! What a way to celebrate love -- by expressing compassion and love for all the living beings. I just do not get the last part; why 2 cakes? One chocolate (assuming non-vegan) and one vegan?

Hahahah the best is how dumb the writer is. "one chocolate and one vegan" - what the heck does that mean? You DO know chocolate can be vegan, right? And vegan isn't a flavor...?

I give the marriage a couple of years and she will be back chewing red meat. Just sayin.

Oh, that is so disappointing! Vegetarianism is good ONLY as a stepping stone towards the complete veganism.

For future wedding planners, I have a yummy "Chocolate Surprise Cake" and chocolate mousse recipe (that tastes like heavy cream, but isn't) in my book. Both cheap vegan...
