Marriage (also called matrimony or wedlock) is a social union or legal contract between people called spouses that establishes rights and obligations between the spouses, between the spouses and their children, and between the spouses and their in-laws. The definition of marriage varies according to different cultures, but it is principally an institution in which interpersonal relationships, usually intimate and sexual, are acknowledged. When defined broadly, marriage is considered a cultural universal. In many cultures, marriage is formalized via a wedding ceremony.

Aprés wedding chit chat, anyone? Did the bride have to <em>buy</em> her own dress?
Just a reminder as we keep hearing about the royal wedding.  In my lifetime, (and yours if you are over 40) there were laws against 'interracial marriage'.  Think about that. I am old enough to remember that in 1967 the supreme court stuck down laws in every state marked in red on this map.  We still have people who seek to stop 'interracial' and 'same ****' marriage.  Love is Love.

A Wrong Answer?     <b>*     While doing a crossword puzzle, I asked for my husband’s help.  "The word is eight letters long and starts with m, and the clue is ‘tiresome sameness.’" "Monogamy," he answered.      </b>*     Link:
If she doesn't scare the shit out of you at least a little bit, she probably isn't the one. <em>amirite?</em>
Newlyweds - and Physics ?     <b>*     A newlywed husband is discouraged by his wife's obsession with physics.  Afraid of being second fiddle to her profession, he finally confronts her: "Do you love math more than me?"  "Of course not, dear - I love you much more!"  Happy, although sceptical, he challenges her: "Well, then prove it!"  Pondering a bit, she responds: "Ok... Let epsilon be greater than zero..."      </b>*     Link:
Facebook Time  <b>*   Facebook and Formspring are two of the many social-networking sites that allow users to embarrass themselves in front of millions of friends and strangers, like these people did.

With the European migrant crisis, child brides have become a pressing legal question, particularly in Scandinavia and Germany.  Response has largely been local and without uniformity either across the EU or within each state.  Germany did recently pass a national measure, but individual countries and localities are still grappling with the issue.  I will post several links below for those interested, as well as an excerpt from an article highlighting that this is not just a migrant or European issue.  <em><b>I'm looking for serious discussion, please read my explanation below as well as the excerpt in the comment section.  Thank you. </b></em>   Your thoughts?

πŸ˜‚ You can tell how long a man has been married by the amount of questions you can ask simultaneously without him getting annoyed. <em>amirite?</em>  πŸ˜‚
😈 Some traditions are downright creepy if you really analyze them. Marriage for example is nothing more than ritualistic bondage. <em>amirite?</em> 😈

I just logged on, and I've seen 3 posts about (1)cheating, (2)character, and (3)underage dating. lol... So I will ask something that has occasionally crossed my mind. If a married person flirts on the internet, without the knowledge of his or her spouse, can that person be considered trustworthy?
What if Billy Idol didn't have a little sister to sing about? Would the "White Wedding" be about his cousin, Carl Trash, instead?
