(Rose again at Intoxication)
"Don't let me fall, Dad," I whispered.
One step at a time, 'I told myself.'
"__Until I found him at last,...."
"All I really saw was Edward's face; it filled my vision and overwhelmed my mind."
"And then, at last, at last, I was there. Edward held out his hand. Charlie took my hand and, in a symbol as old as the world, placed it in Edward's."
"I didn't realize I was crying until it was time to say the binding words. I do, I managed to choke out in a nearly unintelligible whisper, blinking my eyes clear so I could see his face."
"He bent his head toward mine, and I stretched up on the tips of my toes, throwing my arms - bouquet and all - around his neck. He kissed me tenderly, adoringly, I forgot the crowd, the place, the time, the reason...only remembering that he loved me, that he wanted me, that I was his. He began the kiss, and he had to end it; I clung to him, ignoring the titters and the throat-clearing in the audience. Finally, his hands restrained my face and he pulled back - too soon - to look at me."
Is it real because it is in the Order of the Symbolic and the Sacred?
Is it real because it is a civil ceremony obeying the rules of the Law? Which kind of wedding is real?
Which kind of wedding is a simulacrum, a copy of a copy having no original?

The Kardashian/Humphries wedding/marriage cost 10 million dollars and lasted 72 days. Was it real? It was legal.
Does legal mean real? DOES IT? DOES IT?
Do you know? I don't.
