and the redefinings continue to creep in...

California bans 'brides,' 'grooms

ROSEVILLE, Calif. – "Brides" and "grooms" are no longer allowed to marry in the State of California.

That privilege is only extended to individuals who allow themselves to be called "Party A" and "Party B" on marriage licenses.

The couple had written the words "bride" and "groom" next to "Party A" and "Party B" because they wanted to be legally recognized as husband and wife.

However, the Placer County marriage license was denied

And never minding that it makes marriage sound like business arrangement...

But, that's Cali for you. The fruitier and nuttier, the better, I guess is their thought.
