to me, it just has me thinking/questioning the institution of "marriage".
like most things, i think its something that people have just accepted the way it is, because that's what we've been taught. but i've never really known much behind where the traditions have come from, i.e. the father walking his daughter down the isle type thing...
for some reason, my assumption was that it was a practice solely driven by the church, the whole married before the eyes of god thing, but realize now, its not totally like that...
the giving up of woman's name..always wondered how come the man never had to give up his name...
