Jenny and Joshua Doe (names changed to protect them from their parents)Â came to me needing to get married Right Now. Â They already have a big wedding planned somewhere warm and tropical, but the financial pressures of their lives demanded Immediate Marital Legitimacy For Insurance Purposes.
I could have signed the license without saying anything. Â But I couldn’t marry them without any special flavor whatsoever.
So I wrote them a Haiku Ceremony.
All you need is love.
Jenny? Â Joshua? Â We do!
You’re married! Â Now kiss.
Seventeen syllables and they’re set for life!
