Agreed! We had a civil ceremony in a register office, but a nice, old, pretty register office with stained glass windows and oak furniture and pretty flower arrangements and all nice things an that. There were some readings from Donne and Shakespeare and a nice piece of classical music to accompany me walking in. We walked out and down the outside steps under an arch formed by my other half's teaching colleagues dressed in pretend professor gowns and caps. Then it was off to an inn for foodz and beerz. Hurrah! I'm perfectly happy for other people to never get married, to find it pointless for themselves. I suppose I can understand how they might think I did a stupid thing. But I don't see a need to justify it to them. When people tell me it's pointless and a waste of time, which has happened on this forum a few times, my immediate thought is 'who are you to tell me what's pointless for me?' I'm the only one who gets to decide that.
