Wedding day is closing in, and last week B2B and I went to get our marriage license. Over all, a rather quick and painless experience (esp. since the government is involved). But I can't help but wonder where exactly they view the institute of marriage. Just before we signed on the dotted line, we had to raise our right hand and swear that we were: not intoxicated, not coerced, of sound mind, and not related closer than second cousin. Does this mean that they find it hard to believe that you'd want to be wed, unless you are: drunk, forced, stupid, or inbred?
Adding insult to injury, this is the sign outside their office.
Maybe that's what B2B meant when she said we had to get certified to be married.
