    My advice to the groom is get unscathed while you still can, “run forest run”.

  2. Dear Gint Aras,

    What wonderful writing. To forego a wedding ceremony is a personal choice. But your comments about it and its inherent dangers could be reduced to a rationalization of your choice.

    • I agree, wondering. We celebrate all sorts of things. Why not something personal? I didn’t have a wedding when I got married. Nothing at all. Didn’t make the marriage any better. If I get married again, I want one. I have no interest in going any sort of bridezilla route or spending exhorbitant amounts of money. I don’t even know what karats a diamond is supposed to be. But I do want to I like getting all dolled up. I like drinking booze. I like eating tasty food. I like spending party time with good friends. I like getting excited about events and celebrations. I like showing partners how much I love them with silly things. It sounds like a wonderful excuse to have a great time and celebrate love. We celebrate a lot sillier, less personal things.
