So Joe and Juni take the plunge, tie the knot; and do it in a nice, quick, and expedient manner. They have enough on their minds, what with deployment looming on the near horizon and the last thing they need is a long, drawn-out debate over wedding arrangements and catering and invitations and on and on and on. Getting married has its rewards but the marriage itself –the planning and financing and so on– can be a real time suck. So why not get it knocked out quick-like and maybe do a fancy ceremony when they get back?
And what is a more quintessentially quick American style wedding than rushing off to Vegas and getting married by an Elvis impersonator?
Of course it might be worth it to see people’s faces years later when you say “we honeymooned in Iraq”.
Not much else to say this time, except wherever you are out there, have fun!
