Who needs a prince?

I was reading an article, What’s Wrong With Cinderella?, about one mother's frustration with all things Princess. I found this statement too funny, and so true in my experience with dolls and princess fantasies.
One of the most popular games young girls play is “bride,” but Disney found that a groom or prince is incidental to that fantasy, a regrettable necessity at best. Although they keep him around for the climactic kiss, he is otherwise relegated to the bottom of the toy box, which is why you don’t see him prominently displayed in stores.
Hilarious. Although, I'm not sure what that means for a romance author. ;)
