As you may know, the other week, Mitt Romney said his favorite book was Battlefield Earth (I don't think I wrote about it, at the time).
... Now, The New Republic is suggesting he may have confused France's marriage contract with a Science Fiction novel.
I've emailed my friend in Paris and asked him if marriages in France are really contracted in 7-year terms (as Romney suggested). If he says, "no," I'm going to assume that Mitt's really into Science Fiction!
Update: My friend in Paris sent me this email:
Where did he get that ? It is totally false ! Mariage is mariage until you divorce or die !
... So I guess Romney just sort of invented this 7-year contract thing?
