Gabrielle Ray

'Gabrielle Ray said, 'I am always dancing; I love it! When I don't dance, I sing. What else is there to do?'

Gabrielle Ray – Divorce – John Bull – Saturday 9th August 1913


Another Stage Romance.

 When last year Miss Gabrielle Ray, the musical comedy actress of the picture postcards, married Mr. Eric Loder, scion of a noble house, all the papers spoke of it as a stage romance. Evidently the romance has turned to tragedy, as in such cases it often – we had almost said generally – does. Face to face with the fact that her husband has “gone,” Mrs. Loder has applied for and obtained a decree of restitution of conjugal rights – a decree, by the way, which is one of the farces of the present divorce law, for the judge has no power to enforce it; failure to return to the conjugal domicile within the specified time merely becomes evidence of desertion on which a divorce petition may ultimately be founded. It is as well imaginative, stage-struck ladies should realise that marriages are not always as they are painted in the illustrated papers, the “catch of the season” not always as much of a catch as it appears on the surface, either for the actress who catches or for the aristocrat who is caught.
