Funny Paper said
If John had lived, I could well imagine the Lennons and the Allens out for dinner -- I'm sure Yoko and Soon-Yi would get along famously.

 

John Lennon and Woody Allen are my two favorite people.  I can't imagine Woody Allen warming up to the idea, though.  He only listens to jazz.  But I think it could work.  Allen is definitely not a Beatlemaniac (a plus for John), and the two both live(d) insulated lives.

I have a question that's been bothering me (I am re-reading Julia Baird's book on John). And, obviously....nobody can have the answer...this is just for speculation. Why did Julia never divorce Alf? Julia was living with Bobby Dykins and they never married. They had 2 "illigitimate" daughters together (I hate that word). She stayed married to Alf till the day she died. Had she divorced Alf (she knew where he was, so that can't be it), she could have had a much better chance of getting John back from Mimi since the reason Mimi had him was that Julia was "living in sin." Had she married Dykins, she could have fought for custody of John. I am truly am amazed by this. Anyone have any opinions on this? Thanks!

Good question. What a bizarre relationship from the start, those two (Julia and Freddie).

Divorce was indeed uncommon at the time, but not taboo. She had excellent grounds. Alf left her to go to sea after she had John. He was gone for two years that time without a word to her or any support money. She had him on dissertion. Even stranger is why Alf didn't file for divorce after he came home following that two-year absense to find Julia pregnant with the daughter she subsequently gave up for adoption, and starting a new relationship with Bobby Dykins. Just weird any way you look at it. I'm thinking Julia never took her marriage to Alf very seriously. She supposedly married him as a joke, and to get back at her strict father. After they wed, they went to a movie and went home to their respective houses. I just can't figure why she didn't divorce Alf, though, so she could get John back which, according to Julia Baird, was all John's mom cared about (?).

Were either of Julia or Freddie Catholic, maybe?
