Anyway...Elvis always respected her and I think he considered her a girl with whom he could be serious and not just having fun...he had dozen for that.:P
Cilla felt in love too but I don't think she was so ingenue..don't forget she always said she wanted to have sex, also if she was so young but Elvis didn't want to.
I don't want here to discuss about their love or relationship...I think Elvis was interested in her and maybe he thought to a possible life with her.
Anyway I think things changed with the time; Cilla knew everything before getting married...and she can't complain about her decision to marry him.
The point here is why we don't like her...and we already said it....nothing about the past life and choices but what she decided to do after his death.
I can't stop seeing her as a very cold woman who is interested only in money and keeping his own image of the "poor victim" of the King.
Nobody here considers Elvis perfect as human being and he hadn't to be like that...he made his mistakes...but that 1973 they decided to DIVORCE and it seems that Cilla has forgot it.
She doesn't deserve the name Presley...se had to build her own life (since he found a man and had another child) and to stop acting as a widow.. (n)
