Proposed changes to marriage would open the way for Star Wars Jedi to perform ceremonies, a church has said.


I don't think this is going to be workable until we have an effective and reliable test for midi-chlorian count.

Got nerd kids at home I thought would NEVER leave - but this Jedi-performing-marriage-ceremonies possibility? I can see them already proposing - and, more importantly, packing,

I've been married for just over three years.  I've told my wife "I love you" once, and that was two months after we were married.  She tells me that she loves me, and I respond with "As well you should", "I know", "Is dinner ready yet?", "who doesn't?" so on and so forth.  Only once did she ask why I never said it.  I told her "You're smart enough to figure it out without me having to actually say it, aren't you?"

The only time she ever gave me a nickname that wasn't "asshole" I was in the hospital, just waking up from a car crash (wasn't at fault).  She called me 'sweetie' and I asked "how farked am I?"  The answer was "Nine broken bones, head and neck injuries."

I know is so much better than the usual  -
Eorum dolore fiant eorum liber nulla. Nonummy facilisi molestie ad ii dolore. Tation odio minim feugiat esse vulputate. Ii saepius nam claritatem vel quarta. Laoreet sequitur in nihil parum parum. Soluta lorem accumsan te ex legere. Typi vel velit saepius lorem option. Eodem putamus imperdiet eu typi nulla. Clari quinta lius est nihil sequitur. Quinta litterarum ii duis parum mazim.

- and is far more heartwarming

ok -jesus- HERE-
Their pain may be made by any of them free. Those details to the annoyance pain. Low overall, investigating hate being here. More often for the clarity of Ii or fourth. Pump results in no small little. Please ensure you read the prose. We often want to print or Option. At school we have no job types. Clarus fifth fi is nothing follows. Fifth letter's little mazim.

Given a choice between the wee frees and a Jedi, I'd pick the Jedi every time. farking fundamentalist arseholes. They kicked a guy out of their church for attending the funeral of a Catholic friend. They are self-righteous scum.

All you "need" to get married is a judge to approve a form really.  Anything else is just fanfare, from a legal perspective.

Let people do whatever they want to celebrate otherwise. Priests, pastors, clowns, Jedis, box turtles, who really cares?

Actually, in that wreck, the wife and I were in the car together.  What happened was the freeway was shut down due to construction and all traffic, three lanes of it, was being diverted onto the single lane access road.  The car that came up after us, the driver wasn't paying attention and slammed into us at approximately 50 mph (according to the police report).  She tried to swerve at the last moment, hitting the rear driver's side of the car.  I was crushed between the steering wheel and the trunk of the car.  Our car then hit the car in front of us, bounced off and into the ditch on the side of the road.  The woman who hit us, her car continued forward, taking out four more cars, sending eight people and herself to the hospital.

"The Flat Earth Society encourages discussion on a theory that the Earth is a flat disk centred at the North Pole. The society also archives literature on the theory."

Oh FFS.  The "theory" has been disproved, soundly, more than once.  You don't get to call it a theory anymore.  You're not doing science, you're doing stupid.  STFU and go die.

Not much more to tell . I got myself "ordained " to make a point with a rabid hometown TaliBaptist and by coincidence a friend of mine got engaged (3rd time around) and decided she wanted a "Pirate Wedding on the Beach" .

Now, now, don't get your knickers in a twist.  It ain't gonna happen.  The Jedi Council prohibits Jedi marriage.

Until the 1930s, a couple could get married in Scotland simply by standing in front of witnesses and saying "We are married". That's how the blacksmith at Gretna Green "officiated": he was just a witness, and since blacksmiths in coaching towns are open all night he was always available.

It was also the rule until then that if a man induced a woman to have sex with him by promising marriage, the resulting intercourse married them.

Here in Pennsylvania, you can get a Quaker wedding certificate; it allows you to hold a ceremony of any sort, have your friends/family/etc sign that they officiated (all of them) and you're married.  I've been involved in two such weddings.

I've been to a Quaker wedding myself; that's how they work in the UK too. One small point though. The couple themselves officiate and the witnesses simply testify that they did so.
