i know how: a couple married on new years eve. one said i do in 2009, the other said i do in 2010.

@QueenofModesty i know how: a couple married on new years eve. one said i do in 2009, the other said i do in 2010.

not really because they are not married until they are pronounced man and wife so even if one said i do in 09’ and one said it in 10’ they have still not been pronounced husband and wife until after the second person says i do

But wait, if they married the first time that would be +2 to the count. Then they divorced (doesn't affect count) and married again +2. So still an even number, no?

No, it just said that many people were married. The person who married, divorced, and married again would only count as one because you can't count the same person twice. You just can't. Because I say so.

Your partner could die. That doesn't take long. Although most people don't get over their dead spouses that quickly.

I saw a story about a woman who married a bridge. It's a sexuality called "objectosexual" or something.

Hmm.

So riddle me this; Objectosexual marriage is... okay, while Homosexual marriages are still not allowed?

& Before anyone bitches at me - I realize it's possible the woman who married the bridge and the man who married the video game aren't in America.

Can't mormons have multiple wives? That could be the reason.

@Marco Can't mormons have multiple wives? That could be the reason.

Not for a long time. One of our 'comandments' is to follow the laws of the land. Once it became against the law, we stopped doing it. You've probably heard of the FLDS church in Texas. FLDS is and off shoot of our church, kind of like the Protestant church is an off shoot of the Catholic church.

Wasn't it because some guy in Japan married that character from a video game? So it doesn't count as a person?

OK. so, many of the answers could be correct and all, but seriously, it might also be a joke, since when do people have an EXACT number of people who get married, i read that about 3,8 million (or so) people got married last last year, not an exact number as you see!

They aren't recorded as marriages and only catholic priests are married to the church. Most protestant priests can marry. Wait- okay, if a protestant priest is married to his wife AND the church, could that count?
