    NEW YORK — Aretha Franklin won't be getting fitted for a wedding gown after all: She's called off her engagement. A statement released Monday by her representative said Franklin's wedding to Willie Wilkerson wasn't going to happen...

    One could speculate that pre-nup arrangements were not to the satisfaction of both parties...who knows, and it's nomb.

    I'm glad that Aretha canceled the plans for whatever personal reasons known to her and her formerly intended. Sets a fine example for young ppl who are too eager to marry and too 'scared' to back-out before the date.

    Good on you, Aretha! Happiness to the both of you as you move-on in life.
