White guy marrying an Asian female. That's not traditional marriage.

If the President had vetoed a budget, subby might have a headline.

If this goes on a few weeks, which it may, it will be very interesting to watch what people become concerned about beyond closed tourist attractions.

The parents didn't arrange who the bride was marrying and there was no dowry paid. That's not a traditional marriage.
 
2013-10-02 01:53:51 PM
Sigh, the teabaggers will paint it as such.
 
2013-10-02 01:54:42 PM
That headline gave me cancer, subby.
 
2013-10-02 01:58:32 PM
Well then them damn marrying kind of people should just put on their WW2 uniforms and stampede their way in.

/In other news: The Onion writers can't think of any new articles, as the real news is more funny/derpy.

PC LOAD LETTER: The parents didn't arrange who the bride was marrying and there was no dowry paid. That's not a traditional marriage.


The groom didn't hit her on the head with a club and drag her unconscious body back to the cave by her hair. Therefore, not traditional marriage.

I'm already concerned about shipping product to and from Canada.  What happens to customs if this stretches on?

Fortunately federal prisons are "essential" services, so my wedding will proceed as planned this weekend.

FTA "Much like the members of Congress they currently revile, the couple found themselves at an impasse".

Wait, where is the Fartbongo part? It's almost as if the failmitter was trolling... and I'm pretty sure that FARK frowns on trolling.

Now here's a tubgirl gif...probaly NSFW.

Love gorgor

Seriously, go fark yourself

I got married in Yosemite two years ago at the end of june and almost didn't because of that looming government shutdown.

Getting a kick, etc.

Horsefeathers! Joel on my Facebook friends said he hasn't felt any effect of the government shutdown and it already has 13 likes.
 
2013-10-02 02:06:17 PM
No, his government shutdown is his continued attack on common sense and competence in general.  The memorial shutdown was just a lil added bit of immaturity to sweeten the pot.
 
2013-10-02 02:07:44 PM
Oh no, blame the gheys...

What is it about 'traditional marriage'? Why just the other day I asked my neighbor about trading him two sheep and a bushel of wheat for his thirteen year daughter and now he's all 'call the cops' this and 'restraining order' that.
 
2013-10-02 02:08:09 PM
It's not Obama's shutdown. It's the GOP's. They want it they are willing to give it up in order to stop Obamacare. That would be their compromise.
 
2013-10-02 02:08:12 PM
Is the Republican's government shutdown actually a new attack on gun rights? Just ask all the Real Americans who were about to get a gun license at now closed sites.
 
2013-10-02 02:10:04 PM
So this is newsworthy now? Some hipster's wedding might get postponed or have a change of venue. Oh, the humanity. I guess it's a slow news day in the country without a functioning government.
 
2013-10-02 02:10:47 PM
Personally, I think they should all be locked into a room with various weapons placed, a la The Hunger Games, and allowed to "vote" it out until a decision is reached.

John Boener getting a pitchfork up the ass would be magical.
 
2013-10-02 02:11:23 PM
Why would the Republican shutdown do anything to traditional marriage? They are against non traditional marriages.

He's actually seen the bride before the wedding. Therefore, not traditional marriage.

What kind of "low stress bride" has a wedding that has 130 people flying into town? MY wedding was "low stress", we didn't have it at a national monument, nobody had to fly into town, we had the reception 4 days later so that the people who didn't want to drive up into the mountains or couldn't get time off from work could still see us.

Guess what, we would have still gotten married even if there had been a government shutdown, because the wedding was ACTUALLY "low stress".

No it's not, because "Obama's government shutdown" doesn't exist.

Neither one's a virgin and both are over 12? Not traditional marriage.

Well, he could be over 12 and not a virgin -- that stuff only applies to the bride.
 
2013-10-02 02:37:43 PM
It's true. If you can't get married at the location of your choice, you're required by federal law to marry a turtle instead.

Subby, I think those sites are closed to any gay couples wanting to get married there too.

Thankfully the Republicans have shut down Obummercare (for the time being), so at least you can get that whole cancer thing looked at.

Why aren't these people getting married in churches, like good Christians?

there it is again! whee!

you know, you can say, "i'm an astronaut" over and over too. it doesn't make you an astronaut.

Seems the derp factories are working double shifts. What's next?
  OBamacare.... does it make your black powder damp?
The shutdown and you,    what NASCAR fans need to know.
Is the EPA causing shorter days out of spite from being shut down?
We are the knights that say TEA!  Ted cruz in search of the holy grail of conservatism.

I'm sick of Obama acting all like he was elected president or something.

"Oh shiat, this is turning out to be a catastrophe. Can we convince people that Obama's doing it? fark it, might as well try, we blame everything else on him anyway."
 
2013-10-02 03:29:39 PM
Maybe these people should get a real farking job so they can afford to rent a hall instead of relying on my bootstraps to pay for a free farking national monument.

Oh, did you want to borrow one of Jackie Kennedy's dresses from the Smithsonian while you're at it?

Moochers.

Here's an idea.
Get married anyway.  Marriage took place long before government intervention and it'll continue to occur when the United States is an Arbys franchise.

Actually, that's not traditional marriage. With traditional marriage, he would pay you two sheep and a bushel of wheat as a dowry to take his otherwise useless 13-year-old daughter off his hands, and forge a bloodline alliance between your two clans.

I'm pretty concerned about WIC.
