Oscar nominated actress BRENDA BLETHYN is finally getting married to her partner MICHAEL MAYHEW, after dating for 31 years. The couple's decision is prompted by their ages and fear of time running out. The Pride and Prejudice star, 61, says, "The reason is that you get to a certain age and you start thinking about what would happen if one of you were to pop your clogs. "We seem to be even closer now than we've ever been. He's the great love of my life, without a doubt."
