Hmm. I guess my main association of “French” and “Argentina” would be Exocet.

Marco was Argentinian. My feeble Spanish is Argentinian. I was married to an Argentinian. And I lived in BA on and off for a few turbulent years!
How do people get over the trauma of the divorce and failed relationship to be able to start a new one? Most divorcees I know turned canine-/felinesexual miso-gynists/andrists.

Homosexual men have a lot to say about heterosexual relationships, especially priests.

I think Wilde was married, in spite of his homosexuality. At the time, I think marriage was basically forced on most people, so sexual orientation didn't really matter.

Johnson's wife basically cougared him and bankrolled him, so ...

Anyway, she died long before him and he did not remarry.

I remember when I had to pass the exam qualifying me for applying the university (I was homeschooled, and yes - I went to the uni :-D) I got a list of required literature which included Oscar Wilde. I wasn't sure what specifically I was supposed to read, but since I liked Portrait of Dorian Gray, I read everything. At the exam I chose to discuss that story about Mr. Teleny. I shocked the bunch of teachers in the room, to my satisfaction - my little tribute to Oscar Wilde :-)

Anyway, as I suspected, it's better to ask Paul how he achieved his triumph(s?).

The same way you get to Carnegie Hall.

And as they say, "Don't count your chicks..." But I think I'll try gay next time.
