tinneranne2 :  While I totally get what you’re saying… the bottomline is its no one’s business but theirs. That’s what it seems like you’re refusing to get. If you knew nothing of it you wouldnt know of so called “dishonesty”. Simple.

Im all about letting people do what they feel is right. Screw tradition. Do what works for your life and your current circumstances. smile

perfectpisces :  Actually, marriage documents are public records. So it isn’t true that there’s no chance of anyone finding out if the bride and groom don’t tell.

bayoubee :  I never said it there was no chance of anyone finding out. If people go out of their way to invade your personal business then they’re not good people to begin with. 🙂

 

Either way this is flipped it’s NO ONE’S BUSINESS EXCEPT THE BRIDE AND GROOM. Argue it down to the socks… facts are still facts. Let people live how they want to live not how YOU feel they should.

perfectpisces :  Actually, if you’re inviting me to come, buy you a gift, and likely buy a plane ticket as most of my friends/family live out of town, THEN it becomes my business. If you’re inviting me to a WEDDING I’m expecting to see a WEDDING, not a vow renewal or some sort of fake ceremony. 

It’s totally understandable to have to be legally married ahead of time for immigration/tax/insurance purposes. Just don’t lie to me about what you’re inviting me to witness.

bayoubee : Where does all that matter if you were going to do it anyway (whether 1st wedding, vow renewal or the like)???? If you were going to go; you were going to go. The topic of the legitimacy of the ceremony means nothing. & How can it be a “fake” ceremony with 2 very real people professing their love in front of the people that matter most to them??? Its only “fake” by your standards. 

Like I said, if no one knows… no one knows. Simple. Its not your business.
