Save the guy from the mistake of getting married. Such a nice Reverand.

That was only part of what I thought...

The other was "Ladies, guess who is back on the market"...

And from the 3 photos the article had, he seems like drunk would be his normal setting...

Hate to Godwin, but do you know who else is from Australia?

Dudes that lock their daughters up in homemade sex dungeons, that's who.

That's insane. How is anyone - especially an Australian - supposed to get married sober?

YO YO YO YO YO! WHAT IT IS, MOTHERFARKERS?!

It's the law in Canada too.

Don't beat up the guy saving you from a huge mistake

They did not wish for the performance enhancing drug in the marriage industry.

With apologies to the Bitter Brigade, I'm pretty sure that it's *her* who got saved on this one.

This. I am not allowed to perform a marriage if any of the signatories (either spouse, either witness) is under the weather. They're signing a contract, so they need to be sober. I could have my license to perform weddings revoked if I allowed a drunk to sign and it somehow (long shot, I know.. ) came out in a court of law situation.

/hate doing weddings anyway.
//would much rather do a funeral.

I got married in Vegas. And while I wasn't drunk during the wedding, the night before I got so shiat-faced I was barfing into a garbage can on the strip.
Also won about $2K at the blackjack table but was too farked up and didn't walk away. Gave it all back.

/good times

Those pictures make him look like a fun guy, and his pad is clearly his own.  I wonder why he'd want to change all that.

Another Liberal attack on Marriage.

The priest who officiated at my wedding mentioned in passing that he wouldn't go through with it if he smelled alcohol on our breath. Which, you know, fair enough.

Apparently it wasn't a deal-breaker that my soon-to-be-wife and I spent most of the day pissed off at each other and bickering about every little goddamn thing. He gave us a few sidelong glances over that. But that's what he gets for insisting that we get married sober.

There's a thin line between the two, isn't there?

Subby you are spot on , as such a law in Vegas would leave the wedding industry their in ruins.

Showing up drunk at your wedding should be a requirement.
