Anyone else notice/annoyed by this?
My wife and I are juvenile. We get the New York Times on Sunday and we turn to the Styles section to make fun of the people in the wedding announcements. We like to point out the golddiggers, the cradle robbers, the guy marrying out of his looks department, the people who look alike and the people with giant heads. It’s awful and makes me a terrible person. I’m cool with that. Feel free to point out how shallow I am for doing this, and I won’t disagree.
Almost every week, there is one type of photo where we both just point and say, “Bitch!”. It is the one where the photo shows only the bride. If there is anything where there is a union of equals more than marriage, I don’t know what it is. Why on earth would you think that it is okay that in your wedding announcement, a wedding of two people as equals, that you should show only one of those people?
And it’s always the bride. In our years of doing this, there has never been a groom only picture. Even since the Times started printing gay couples a few years ago.
Drives me nuts.
