One Year Down ...

Has it been a year of happily wedded bliss already? This weekend was the 1st wedding anniversary of Amy Winehouse and Blake Civil-Fielder and altho the happy couple couldn't be together to celebrate their first anniversary (because hubby Blake is currently in jail serving time for allegedly attempting to pervert justice), Amy did her best to mark the occasion in style:

Troubled singer Amy Winehouse marked her first wedding anniversary to Blake Fielder-Civil with a lonely fish and chip supper after visiting her husband in prison. The couple spent their anniversary apart on Sunday after Amy chose to join troubled rocker Pete Doherty at a charity football tournament in south east London. After missing a prison visit on Friday due to the traffic, Amy abandoned her usual scruffy clothes and dressed up in a pencil skirt and v-neck black top as she dropped by Pentonville Prison for a belated anniversary meeting. Amy usually visits Blake in a pair of high-heels, but opted for her signature ballet bumps for the afternoon trip. Amy and Blake have spent seven months of their brief marriage apart due to the former music video assistant's incarceration as he awaits trial for GBH and attempting to pervert the course of justice. The troubled singer, 24, paid tribute to her husband by placing a cushioned heart with the name Blake splashed across it in her famous beehive. After marking their first year as husband and wife in the visiting room of Pentonville in north London, Amy left the prison beaming to photographers. She stopped off at a local fish and chip for a greasy supper-for-one, which she sadly wasn't able to share with her husband. A change from her usual moody demeanor of recent weeks, an ecstatic Amy looked thrilled to be married for a year, despite the couple's tumultuous 12 months.

I gotta say, kudos to Amy Winehouse for deciding to stay married to her jailbird husband who was forced to leave her after only a few months of wedded bliss. The couple have spent the majority of their marriage apart and yet, here they are celebrating their first wedding anniversary. Perhaps Amy Winehouse is smarter than us all ... perhaps she has figured out the secret to a long and happy marriage? (Perhaps Pete Doherty has found his true calling as a marriage counselor?) In any event, Happy Anniversary Amy & Blake ... you've lasted longer than, I'm sure, most everyone on planet Earth anticipated. [Source]
