From Mercury SPECULATION is mounting that Greg Norman plans to marry his lover Chris Evert, with the golfer trying to speed up his divorce. Lawyers representing the Great White Shark and his estranged wife Laura appeared in a Florida court yesterday to discuss divorce proceedings, with Mr Norman demanding that the court grant an order to legally end the 25-year marriage. Mrs Norman's lawyer Jack Scarola told the court that his client would not sign off on the divorce until the formal terms of her settlement - which is estimated to be worth at least $A100 million - were authorised by Mr Norman, who filed for divorce in July. "We resisted his request for the order to dissolve the marriage," Mr Scarola told The Daily Telegraph Online yesterday. "Greg is obviously very anxious to have a divorce decree enforced by the court but we do not want that until the terms have been settled.

From USA Today DENVER (AP) — U.S. Roman Catholic bishops began a campaign Wednesday to strengthen the institution of marriage by encouraging spouses to perform simple day-to-day gestures for one another. The campaign, a series of radio and television spots, is part of a broader effort to bring a greater Catholic voice to the debate over the meaning of marriage. The spots show ordinary people in parks and other public places answering the question "What have you done for your marriage today?" The answers — waking up early with the baby, organizing a date night — are meant to promote small acts of kindness as medicine for making marriages last a lifetime.

From The Australian By Stephen Lunn WOMEN who return to work part-time after having children have more difficulty juggling career and family than mothers in full-time jobs. And those who think they can solve the problem by starting their own business are wrong, with self-employed women even more likely to be stressed because they lack time. "It is a double whammy for part-time working women - their jobs aren't the best career option and more is expected of them on the home front," said Barbara Pocock, head of the Centre for Work + Life at the University of South Australia. Professor Pocock conducted in March the first national survey of work-life outcomes, called Work, Life and Time, polling 1435 male and female Australians.
From The New York Post’s Page Six By Paula Froelich June 25, 2007 -- JUST as David beat Goliath, upstart OK! has given People a knuckle sandwich in the ongoing weekly-celebrity-magazine wars. Sources said People "laid the groundwork" for landing exclusive photos of Eva Longoria and Tony Parker's July 7 wedding - but Page Six has learned that OK! won the frenzied bidding. Sources close to the negotiations said OK! paid more than $2 million. It was a surprising - and costly - end to the battle for the privilege to snap the nuptials, which the "Desperate Housewives" hottie and her San Antonio Spur fiancé plan to hold in a romantic castle in Paris.

From People By Emily Fromm "I'm not sure when or why the tabloid angle on me was decided that I am a cad," the Scrubs star writes on his MySpace blog. "I would have much rather it had been that I am secretly a dentist or that I love soup." He continues: "I am in fact, merely doing what every other single 32 year old man in NYC is doing this summer. I am dating. If you must read that stuff, please don't digest it as fact." That "stuff" could include reports that he was spotted "all over yet another hot young blonde" (the New York Post) and has been "deploying pickup lines such as 'You have a nice bottom' and 'You have a hot bod' " (Radar online).

From The Advocate There's a split in John Edwards' household over same-sex marriage, but he says his difference of opinion with wife Elizabeth hasn't created any awkward moments. ''It's not the only thing we disagree about,'' the Democratic presidential candidate quipped Monday on ''The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.'' ''She actually says what she thinks,'' Edwards said. Elizabeth Edwards kicked off San Francisco's annual gay pride parade Sunday by declaring her support for legalizing same-sex marriage. ''I don't know why someone else's marriage has anything to do with me,'' she said. The former North Carolina senator, sitting with his wife on Leno's couch, said he was unaware of her position on same-sex marriage and was surprised to learn about it while reading the newspaper.
