I agree. Although I do think there was some love there for Priscilla, I don't believe for one second that he would have married her had Parker not "put his foot down" to Elvis about it or when her father asked him when he was going to make good on his promise to marry her.....
Oh and I don't think for a second that they waited till they were married to do the deed. Maybe till she was 18.(and untill they just did other things) And I don't care what Jo Esposito says. YOu don't live and sleep with a man for that many years and not have sex. No freaking way!
I don`t know when she fell in love with him, but I do believe that a 14 year old can fall in love. I fell in love with my husband at age 14. He was 17.
Security is not the absence of danger but the presence of God no matter what the danger.
I think Priscilla at 14 and Elvis 24, he was a little older, she was still a teenager, but that doesn't mean she didn't fall in love with him...Age doesn't always come into play with love, it's really how you feel about someone and depends on the two involved..
I don't know about Elvis being "forced" to marry Priscilla because if he didn't really "love" her he could have just left her in Germany and not had any contact with her after the army...Why did he have her come to Graceland and live with him? Maybe, things changed for them after, but I think they did love each other.
At What point did Priscilla fall in love? Well, it's Elvis, so probably when he introduced himself
Don't forget how in the book she claimed she tried to get him to make love to her...shows that in the movie too. Now how many men do you think would be able to hold back under that kind of pressure?
YOu got that straight Diane. And at that age, come on now!!!
Maybe elvis didn't sleep with priscilla at first cause every book l seen says elvis liked vigins and wanted to keep them that way till marriage, well till linda and kathy. Anita didn't sleep with elvis either.
Don't know, there sex life doesn't really interest me if they did or not.
But as for May 1, 1967 ... let me be blunt. Although I am not a great fan of Cilla, I do believe her when she says they never had actual sex until their wedding night and that she was a virgin when they were married.
And when I say sex here, I mean the big one: part A into part B, like they tried to teach us at school. I think Elvis saw her as the potential mother of his child, and didn't want to "sully" her and her body. Elvis was funny like that, IMO.
However, I'm sure they had done everything else by the time the wedding night rolled around, so the actual "event" was the culmination of years of getting close.
And - inasmuch as many fans might not wish to hear this - I also believe Elvis had sexual relations with Cilla when she was under age. No doubt about it, IMO. Not the big one, I mean the other stuff. And probably as early as when she was 14, in Germany.
And there's no point in trotting out the old line of "Well, people were married very young in the South" or "It was the times" and things of that nature.
Cilla wasn't a Southerner: had the real story been exposed back when it was happening, I think charges could have been laid against Elvis.
Getlo - cute'n'cuddly
