I have a lot of quips about marriage, something that go along the lines of tent, white dress huh?, etc….
But I will stay clear from discussing any of them until I either get married or find someone, since I have a very low probability for getting married (0.088) and I do not want to lower the odds…
Maybe I should dedicate this page to advertise myself (who knows it might increase the odds), or at least counter my sisters advertising (he is bald, fat, quirky, hates shopping, etc….). Come on, I know you guys have not taken a course on advertising, but you have to remain focused on the positive aspects….
Nah, I think I will just keep this post as a bookmark on this topic. There is a lot to discuss, especially the white dress…
Why do I keep mention the white dress ? It was a major discussion I had with my sisters (I actually got them all mad at me 😉
But read the following excerpt from Wikipedia and I rest my case (but I am open for debate…)
“White did not become a popular option until 1840, after the marriage of Queen Victoria to Albert of Saxe-Coburg. Victoria had worn a white gown for the event so as to incorporate some lace she owned. The official wedding portrait photograph was widely published, and many other brides opted for a similar dress in honor of the Queen’s choice.
The tradition continues today in the form of a white wedding, though prior to the Victorian era, a bride was married in any color except black (the color of mourning) or red (which was connected with prostitutes)… Later, many people assumed that the color white was intended to symbolize virginity, though this had not been the original intention. (It was the color blue that was connected to purity.) The white gown is in fact a symbolic Christening gown. The are a variation of the white surplice worn in the Western Catholic tradition by members of the clergy, church choirs and servers and the gowns worn by girls making their first communion and at their confirmation and also by women making religious vows. Today, the white dress is normally understood merely as the most traditional and popular choice for weddings.” – Wikipedia
