The Wedding Singer
I have a theory, or maybe a superstition:
If a bride or groom sings to her or his honey during the wedding ceremony, that marriage is ill-fated.
It seems to me that if you're marrying the right person, you should not feel that poised, you should have many more butterflies than that, on your wedding day. If you're chillaxed enough to be the entertainment at your own nuptials, you're tooooo chillaxed and the one you're marrying doesn't scramble your brain cells (among other things) quite enough.
I told someone this yesterday and she (a very happily married woman) said, "My husband sang to me at our 25th anniversary party." I told her that's different; he'd had enough time to calm down by then.
Do you know of a singing bride or groom who've stayed married?
I have three anecdotes to support my theory, and none to discredit it. I recently met a lovely bride whose groom serenaded her as she walked down the aisle. And I hope and pray that they shoot my theory all to hell.
