Emlyn, Spike in my view is certainly not "missing out!" He married quite young to a smart, pretty gal and found himself in a relationship which has lasted the test of time. We should be very happy for him! People don't necessarily have to "sow their wild oats" before marriage to be happy. In fact, that can lead to behavior patterns which are hard to break.

best wishes,
