My opinion is that Joran van der Sloots marriage announcement was nothing more than an additional play for more media coverage. I do not understand how a marriage could even have been considered. He has a 28 year jail sentence and is still rumored to have been involved with the Natalee Holloway disappearance. I also cannot understand any girls family allowing her to marry someone with a sordid past and no future.
No, I would not allow someone I care about to marry Joran van der Sloot, because he is violent and murders women. Allowing someone to marry Joran would be tantamount to suicide. When Joran fights with a woman, he thinks that it is acceptable to kill them. He is guilty of at least two murders.
No, I would not want any person I care about to marry this guy. He confessed to the crimes he was guilty of committing, and no matter what the conditions behind the confession were he still signed the paper. This would make me very worried if someone I knew married him.
Joran van der Sloot is known for murder and robbery. He is basically a dangerous criminal who is locked behind bars. I would not allow someone I cared about to marry a dangerous animal like him. By allowing such a marriage, I would be endangering the life of this person who is dear to me. It would be a crime for me to give my blessings to such a horrible marriage.
As with most marriages, people outside of the union don't honestly have much of a say in rather or not it will proceed. If someone I cared about had decided to marry Joran van der Sloot I would obviously be against this decision, but I probably wouldn't have any power to stop it from happening.
