as any engineer will know, the definition of marriage (and wedding for that matter) is
the bringing together of
==D and O (or in my case ====D and O)
the whole church thing is a "wedding ceremony" that is a celebration of what is about to take place (or most likely what has already taken place).
I maintain the position that the result of allowing gay people to marry is that some gay people will marry, and a subset of them will probably divorce.
Incidentally, whenever anyone refers to Mr Jolly as BJ I always titter.
