Well,his attitude regarding his recent marriage I understand perfectly - back in 2001,things between him and Fanny were quite stressful and overexposed on the UK papers(a research job would help newbies to find it out),than on 2002,they got back together,in 2003 the wedding...people would judge Mike's attitudes regarding why he and Fanny are together after the 2001 episodes,and now he has learned not to overexpose his personal life too much.It took a while really,but I feel he feels more confortable.
I had myself a similar situation with a former boyfriend regarding overexposure,and I remember when we've got back together again,we both adopted the same policy Mike has got with Fanny,and it worked quite fine 'til we splitted.And now I do adopt also with my current boyfriend,I don't overexpose our relationship to anyone,and it works quite fine for me.
This particular quote from Mike,"I find that intrusive. Delving into people’s private lives… It’s too personal. I’d feel myself to be very rude if I put the same thing to you." it's Mike's reply to this voyeuristic culture we've been facing off nowadays.Only Mike knows what he should say about his personal life,not anyone.
I caught me thinking here...it wasn't necessary putting that toliet part,it doesn't work fine for Mike's personal marketing really.
BTW,what I do care is the fact he's happy regarding family life,which is so good to hear from him,after all the previous stuff he's experienced in the past.And of course,Tubular Bells's back on his hands
