The Bride (and Groom) Wore Black

From the New York Times Society Pages:

The Rev. Mark Alan Lewis and the Rev. K. Dennis Winslow, Episcopal priests, were joined in civil union on Tuesday. The Rev. Tim S. Hall, also an Episcopal priest, officiated at the couple’s home in Union City, N.J., assisted by his wife, the Rev. Jacqueline Schmidt . . .

Mr. Winslow, referring to the many marriage ceremonies he has performed, said: “I say over and over again to couples, ‘Please don’t let us down. You’ve made these promises to us in public. Keep those promises.’ And that’s what we intend to do.”

That's kind of sweet. Of course, I recall a time way back when the betrothed made their promises to God but can understand the Rev'd Messrs. Winslow and Lewis lightening up a little on that draconian requirement: men are so absolutely impossible to live with.
