Don't lecture us, Jackie & Bill

Sir -- I take exception to the article in your 'Living' section (Sunday Independent, Oct 3), in which 'Bill & Jackie' state that "marriages don't work", the people in question being Jackie Lavin and Bill Cullen.

It needs to be pointed out to this 'celebrity couple' that there are hundreds of thousands of couples whose marriages do work and work extremely well, my own being a case in point, we having been happily married for the past 37 years.

So please 'Bill & Jackie' don't be putting down a lifestyle that thousands, the world over, are successful at because you both have failed in the past at same.
