My reaction to the photo in the entry “States Forced to Abandon Marriage Laws” was a question. Doesn’t anyone ever dress up anymore? Is it shallow that I don’t think someone should wear a T-shirt to their own wedding?
Really, it’s not about the clothes. But I do think appearance can reflect values. We used to dress up for things that mattered — church, ceremonies, weddings. This haphazard gathering reflects the lack of seriousness with which our culture regards marriage.
