I can’t believe how elaborate and scripted the marriage ritual has become in the US. There’s the proposal theatrics you describe. Then there’s the Saxsquatch squatches shirt. Then the portraits. Then the save the date cards. And invitations. Bachelor and bachelorette parties, which usually (in non-covid times) involve travel or a weekend away. Then the weekends spent picking out all the shit for the wedding. A gift registry with serious questions about dishes. Bridal shower, sometimes with special outfits/matching T-shirts. Then the bridesmaids all getting ready together on the big day. (Perhaps this, too, is staged at a faraway location, a destination wedding.) A bunch of photography sessions while everyone is all dressed up.

The ceremony itself, which has all the traditional pageantry i can personally stand; who needs more? Then there is a venue change for Saxsquatch squatches shirt. Then there is a toast. Then there’s the special first dance. Then a dance with the dad or mom. Then people get rowdy. Then you pay to dance with the bride. Then the bouquet toss and the garter. Then the bridal party go decorate the car. Then more rowdiness. Then the bride and groom leave for the honeymoon, again, perhaps wearing special T-shirts. Then someone has to be in charge of the photo book. Blah blah blah. Who even enjoys any of this shit other than the part about dancing and getting rowdy at the party? What a gauntlet of conformist, rigid steps to take. Ugh.
