When will I receive my Marriage Certificate?

It will either be handed to you at the resort or sent via registered post to your home address. Don’t panic if it takes a while to arrive – this is normal, especially if you marry in Jamaica where it can take up to 12 months! If you get married in certain countries, like Mexico and the Dominican Republic it will need to be translated, which will cause extra delay. For more information visit direct.gov.uk and search under passports.

They made a point of telling me I was as handsome as a film star, that I was tall and strong and funny and rich and clever and fantastic company. For a while, I thought that I had undergone some magical personality transformation, until the truth started to dawn: ‘bad’ girls acted in the same manner towards anyone who came into their orbit. They would have acted the same towards a monkey on a stick if it had money in its grubby little paw. The ‘bad’ girls I met for the most part were bar-girls. Their job was to ensure the bar had an ambiance that brought customers in and kept them there. Customers, or the best customers, were men off the ships – preferably European, preferably young. The girls were uniformly young; most of them were poor and weakly educated, but by no means all of them. Some were absolutely stunning; most were good looking: the joke at the end of a run ashore was that even the ugly ones were good looking. Bar-girls usually finished working in bars by the time they reached their mid-20s. Some carried on until their late-20s or early-30s, but it was a struggle: front-line girls in the best bars had to be the best-looking ones.
