Critics are going to have to find a new poster program for crude taste, because Fox is finally canceling "Married With Children," the longest-running sitcom on network television.The blue-collar sitcom that mocked working-class folk just celebrated its 10th anniversary this month as the series that launched prime-time programming on Fox.The Bundys -- husband Al (Ed O'Neill), wife Peg (Katey Sagal) and teen-age kids Bud (David Faustino) and Kelly (Christina Applegate) -- were conceived as an anti-family in 1986 for the network that thought of itself as the counter-network.

CLARKSBURG - All the children came in for the wedding yesterday: The groom's three, the bride's four, even 10 of the grandchildren. They came here to northwestern Montgomery County, to a secluded farmhouse near the small crossroads of Clarksburg, from as far away as Mississippi, Missouri, Texas, Nebraska, California, New Zealand. And they came not because the bride is 84 and the groom is 88 but because Mary Beth Beck and Glen Pearson reared them to recognize love, to value marriage, to be grateful for both.

"I never feel more married than I do on a Sunday, and I never like it less."So says my friend Mark, a high school teacher in his early 40s, who has been what I would call "happily married" for a little more than 10 years. But on Sundays, he says, he is often overwhelmed by a sense of life's having passed him by. He is antsy, unsettled and uneasy. He reports becoming wistful, sentimental and prone to bouts of regrets."I love my life," he explained, "but sometimes I wonder whether there's another woman out there who I would have loved even more.

Next month, a regular character on The Simpsons will come out and be married in a same-sex wedding.

In general, amenities range from ``Just Married'' T-shirts and a bottle of bubbly to moonlight sails (common in Florida and the Caribbean) and heart-shaped beds or tubs (a trademark of the Poconos and Niagara Falls).Geri Bain, travel editor of Modern Bride magazine, says the weddings-away business is ``growing really fast.

Whenever I tell people this love story, they get misty-eyed and sigh, "It's just like a movie."It won't ruin the ending for you if I say right away that the couple the story, my parents, did get married, and quite a long time ago at that. Some happy endings are simply happy beginnings, after all.My parents met and married in Sicily during World War II. Last year they celebrated 50 years of marriage. For most people that would be happy ending enough, but not for me. From the beginning of the year, I worked hard to persuade my parents to celebrate their 50th anniversary in Italy, with all their family around them.

Washington They were in love, madly in love, when they met -- two teen-agers from a lower middle class suburb in Prince Georges County. By age 16, she was pregnant with a child no one wanted them to have.Six years later, after several break-ups and reconciliations, after he'd become famous and wealthy as a boxer and she'd dropped out of school to support her son, he asked her, on the eve of his first championship fight, to marry him.The public saw it as a storybook romance: ". . . the stuff of dreams, of fantasies little girls fall asleep with," a newspaper columnist wrote after their huge church wedding in 1980.

In Part Two of a five-part excerpt from "Behind Palace Doors: Marriage and Divorce in the House of Windsor" by Nigel Dempster and Peter Evans, Prince Charles' grandmother, the queen mother, maneuvers her grandson into marrying her protege, Lady Diana Spencer.Sacrifice is the essence of commitment, Charles' beloved grandmother, Elizabeth, had told him, just as firmly as she had told his mother that her work was "the rent for the room you occupy on earth." They were more than tracts she expected to be honored, it was the faith she shed: It was the resin that held the royal family together.
