To Love and to Cherish ...
AsLongas We Both Shall Live On the eve of their first wedding anniversary Marc and Karen have come through a tempestuous 12 months. Financial crises and rows about money, the loss of their dream home, the reappearance of an ex-girlfriend to threaten their marriage, Marc's redundancy from his full-time job - and the wettest summer for 50 years. Karen's parents have watched it all, sometimes with their fingers crossed. Marc's brother and sister have seen the change in Marc, and are not sure they completely approve of the new, more responsible, husband figure that has replaced the man once known as the 'ram of Cardiff. But
Marc and Karen are still as much in love, still together, moving into a new home, talking of starting a family - and looking forward to the rest of their marriage. Film cameramen
