I am on record as saying that the terms "Brother" and "Sister" are control mechanisms to tear down your individuality and re-define who is supposed to be your family. After all, should you have a sibling who leaves, you have other replacements....
@AllTimeJeff I'm with you on that.
I have no idea how my wife and I were introduced. I had other things on my mind.
Funny thing is, she wanted a wedding at the hall because her parents would get upset if we didn't do that. I wanted to elope. Vegas, baby. But instead we compromised and had the wedding at the hall with no sex before marriage after 5 years of dating on and off.
Come Monday, though, the elder called and said I'd screwed up the license and we had to go get "married" (sign paperwork again with the elder, best man and bride's maid) in the county hall. So, technically, we still had sex before marriage...
And then her sister (the bride's maid) got married in court with absolutely no fuss from their parents.
That's my rant, that's my wedding rant... :)
