The Plus-One Dilemma

First: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-13047570

Now...
Liz needs a date for Anthony's wedding strip 1, strip 2strip 3, strip 4, strip 5
Liz needs a date for NYE 2003-04 strip 1, strip 2, strip 3, strip 4
Liz needs a date for Mike's book launch strip 1strip 2
Liz needs a date for Shawna-Marie's wedding strip 1, strip 2 then tries to go solo and discovers Mason and then Anthony

Makes me assume that a "plus-one" must be common practice in Milborough, since no one bats an eyelid at how Liz cannot attend anything on her own.

I just love the conclusion of the BBC article:
But if you are just horrified at the thought of going to a wedding alone, it's time to grow up, says Mangan.

"We're all old enough to go to a party and mix with people, if you can't it's rather pathetic."


Indeed.
