‘Never again’ father weds second time

THE founder of Fathers 4 Justice will wed his partner of four years today after vowing “never again” to get married.

Matt O’Connor, from Winchester, will marry Nadine Taylor, pictured, from Romsey, at Romsey Abbey.

They will wear handcuffs as a sign of their campaigning past and their commitment to each other.

The pair, who have a three-year-old son, Archie, first met at a Fathers 4 Justice meeting in Southampton, in February, 2005.

Matt founded the organisation in 2002 after divorce led to him losing contact with his two sons.

He said: “I never imagined I’d meet anyone in an organisation full of big, ugly blokes like me, let alone get married to one of them. I had vowed never again, but we have learnt the value of commitment and marriage. I guess it’s what you would call wedlock.”
