There's a bit of confusing wordplay here that could be easily avoided.

The officiant of a wedding does not marry anybody. The two betrothed marry each other. The officiant presides to ensure that the two people properly marry each other, according to the rites, customs and legalities involved.

You must be a real hit at parties.

Last time, he married a Star Trek producer who used him to try to climb.  Afer the dvorce, she was of course back where she started.  Now, a jazz musician... yeah.  Not that there would be a pattern here.

SRSLY - WTF is Stewart doing?  You don't actually marry your MPDG.  Or if you do, you make damn sure the pre-nup is air-tight.

This is the farmer sowing his corn,
That kept the cock that crowed in the morn,
That waked the priest all shaven and shorn,
That married the man all tattered and torn,
That kissed the maiden all forlorn,

That milked the cow with the crumpled horn,
That tossed the dog,
That worried the cat,
That killed the rat,
That ate the malt
That lay in the house that Jack built.

/Mother Goose must have had some weird ideas.

Oh dearie, me, whatever shall I do, I have to type in 4 whole letters into a search engine.  Woe is me, I am so put-upon to have to go to such trouble.

You know what?  Double-fark you for not knowing it, even though I had to look it up myself in a Fark thread a couple days ago, and thought it was a pop-culture reference everyone but me knew.

The fiance was 9 years old when the first season of TNG aired. That is how old my daughter is now. I cannot help but be weirded out picturing a first season bad-uniform Picard flirting with my daughter now.

I googled her name, and that was one of the first images that popped up. So I can assume so. There were other photos of them together, she does seem really into him. He is a pimp, and if he wasn't getting married again, I would so tap that ass, and I'm 27. I find that man strangely attractive like I find Steve Buscemi attractive. I can't explain, but damn hot.

I remember seeing him and his ex Alyce Faye the Psychotherapist on Martha Stewart back in the day.  I remember thinking it was sad - he was fawning over her, obviously wanting to do whatever pleased her, promoting her book and talking up her cred as a psychotherapist, and she was so obviously a self-absorbed twat.  I knew, even then, that she was about to take him for everything she could get her hands on, the moment she hit the max under California law.

Seeing the age difference in print makes it look weird, but I'm gay and 27, and think Stewart is attractive. Heck, McKellen is likeable enough that I might go for him.

Now wait... Is Sir Ian allowed to officiate/marry couples because he's a knight? Is that how it works? Or is he a minister or public official of some sort? Or a sea captain?

Do knights automatically get the ability to officiate over certain legal proceedings  Could I ask Sir Patrick to notarize something, or sign off on a divorce? What are the actual powers of a modern knight?

Gandalf: "YOU... SHALL... KISS... THE BRIDE!"

In a different article he explains how it happened.

"Patrick Stewart says to me, 'Sir Ian, I want you to be our officiant.' And I say to him, 'You are aware that I am not really an officiant,' and he said, 'Yes, I am aware of that. What I want you to do is use your speaking skills to read the wedding liturgy for the duration of the wedding.' So I said, 'Okay.' And then I said to myself, 'Hmm, how would I do that?' And this is what I did: I imagined what it would be like to officiate at a wedding, and then I pretended and acted in that way on the day... And how did I know what to say? The words were written down for me in a liturgical book. How did I know where to stand? People told me. If we were to draw a graph of my process, of my method, it would be something like this: 'Sir Ian, Sir Ian, Sir Ian. Dearly beloved. PICARD! YOU MAY KISS THE BRIDE! Kiss! Sir Ian, Sir Ian, Sir Ian.'"

Much Ado About Nothing

, Act IV, Scene I. Claudio is refusing to marry Hero; his buddy Leonato thinks Claudio is just being a grammar Nazi.

LEONATO
Come, Friar Francis, be brief; only to the plain
form of marriage, and you shall recount their
particular duties afterwards.

FRIAR FRANCIS
You come hither, my lord, to marry this lady.

CLAUDIO
No.

LEONATO
To be married to her: friar, you come to marry her.


I'm going to go ahead and side with Shakespeare in this little dispute over whether a word can or can't have a given meaning in English.
