I now pronounce you....

I think we found someone to marry us. He sounds like he'll do it but he just has to review a few more things before making the final decision. Soooo, it might be a little premature, but I'm super duper excited so I'm going to say it anyway....

I've asked my old partner, Mike, to become an ordained minister and marry us. He's got the BEST personality in the world. He can make anything funny without trying. I was at work complaining to co-workers about how expensive it is to find someone to marry us. Like $300-500 for a 10 minute ceremony. We've both been married. We've both been divorced. We both don't really practice our religion. We're both probably going to hell for all of it. So, we figured we'd just have a civil ceremony to make it official.

This one girl started talking about her wedding and said this guy we work with married them. I was shocked because I didn't know he could do that. She gave me information about how to become an ordained minister and it was 100% legal and you can pick who you want to marry you. I told Brian the story, without mentioning Mike's name, and his immediate response was Mike's name.

I talked to him today and it sounds like he'll do it. He said he's a little nervous about the actual ceremony part but if we could figure out what we wanted he'd probably do it. He said he'll give me his 100% answer in a few days. OMG, it will be the perfect wedding if he can marry us. I'm sure it will piss someone off but thats definitely okay in my book. He's worth it.

It think you should be doing whatever you and Brian want... who cares if your decisions piss anyone off. It's YOUR wedding. I look forward to hearing what Mike has to say. You have a special bond with him and always will. That's what makes it even better. He actually "knows" you guys - most ppl can't say that about the person that marries them.

I became an ordained minister about 8 years ago. Thought it would be a funny thing to do. It's super easy.
