A sign not to get married!

  1. Todays trauma patients decided to climb Mt Ranier to be married at the summit. But before the "I Do's" were exchanged, the bride, groom and pastor fell/slid 80 feet and wound up as traumas in the ER! All are fine except for one ankle fx (groom), a concussion(bride) and a few bumps and bruises! Do you think its a sign to readdress the whole wedding thing?

    So.... were they allowed to get married in the ER? I can see administration trying to work that for the PR...

    Of course, if they said "I Do" after the morphine, maybe they can get an anulment later based on mental incompetence or defect at the time of the marriage?

    They'll never live it down!

    when we were vacationing in Maine, we saw formally dressed bride, groom and minister on the rocks overlooking the ocean far below at Acadia National Park!

    ZOINKS..no i think it is a sign not to mess w/Mt Rainier...only roughly 5% of those attempting it actually summit and make it down in one piece they say. My friend at work is an avid climber, and in awesome shape and says it is the hardest thing she ever did---- to summit that puppy. thank good ness those folks emerged alive and relatively well. could have been much worse! i say, they were spared in order to marry! lol.....it made for interesting news on TV tho.......
