The rush to wed on 10/10/10

by Peter Magee on September 18, 2010

Marriage celebrant Martin Moroney, spokesperson for Australian Marriage Celebrants reports that celebrants are getting booked out early for the 10th of October, 2010. This numerically propitious date (10/10/10) is seen by couples as the perfect day to marry.
I may be old fashioned, but to me its not the wedding that is important but the marriage that follows.
There’s no doubt that getting married is one of the most significant events in any one’s life and the modern trend is for the occasion to be ‘perfect”. The concept of “perfect” seems to include, unique, better, and often, more expensive than the wedding of our peers.
I can only hope that these couples have spent as much time in planning the marriage as they have their wedding.
