As a wedding officiant I sometimes have to be the voice of diplomacy.
I received the wording of a wedding ceremony from a groom yesterday via email and he titled the ceremony (made up names) “Jim and Jackie – June 1, 2013” and asked if it looked OK. I knew the groom had a sense of humor so I emailed back that it looked fine but that I will be titling it “Jackie and Jim – June 1 2013”.
The groom emailed back simply “?”.
I replied, “Talk to Jackie”.
I have been married over twenty years so I know that keeping your marriage happy means keeping your wife happy. 🙂 Or, at least, I learned that as a wedding officiant.
I love couples who have a sense of humor. Our phone and email exchanges are always a lot of fun.
