charmbomb: We were together for 9 years before we decided to get hitched. On a whim one day after breakfast we decided to go down to the courthouse. After we got the license, we asked "So... what's the deal, we just walk down the hall and get it signed by the judge?" The lady at the counter explained we had to pay another $85 to get it signed by the judge. EIGHTY FIVE DOLLARS? That's crazy. My brother is a pastor and was doing some electrical work at a building on the corner. We met him up for a piece of pizza while he made it official. I was in braids and a cowboy shirt and vans. Hub was in dickies and a work shirt.We were about halfway through our slices when we were officially married.I don't understand the pressure for a fat diamond, to fit into a tiny over-priced dress, a huge wedding, just to be fat and in debt later. It just doesn't appeal to me./Cool story sis
