Why We Arent Getting Married?

From the back of a beer coaster:

"In ancient Babylon, a bride's father would supply his son-in-law with all the mead he could drink for the month after the wedding. As mead is a honey beer and their calendar was based on a lunar year, this period became known as the 'honeymoon'."

And they wonder why men have committment troubles these days, just bring back the free beer....

  • And that's why people are getting divorced more these days... the alcohol runs out.

  • essa - I would vote for your hubby!
    actonb - lets face it, its slim pickins these days for girls ;-p
    alice - when the 'honeymoon' is over its like turning the ugly lights on in a club at 5am.

  • I got some mead out near Mudgee last year - that shit rocks.

    Which means that the end of the honeymoon was actually like leaving the music ON while turning on the ugly lights just so you can watch all those people who looked attractive under strobe being ugly AND throwing shapes like spakkers.

  • sure beats a dowry of a goat or some other farmyard animal.

  • You may not get free beer but at least you'd have someone to fetch the beer you paid for from the fridge.

  • WJ - I so knew i couldnt dance without the strobe

    Steph - my friends from enzed would beg to differ

    Odly - the trick is to have the beer fridge next to the lounge and not get married methinks......

  • The beer fridge and couch set-up has got to be better than Fingers's cave with fire and pigs. And how about a beer fridge by the bed for those lazy weekends...

  • Georgia, if you came with a goat as a dowry and I married you, I think I'd take the goat on the honeymoon and leave you standing over a bucket in the barn...

  • Blimey cant you just feel the sexual tension between goirgia and fingers...........GET A ROOM

    By Blogger BEAST, at 2:11 PM  

  • The sexual tension between Fingers and I is about as taut as Mel Gibson's wife's pelvic floor.

  • In the Wild Wild West.....

    "Indians! Head for the hills, men!"

    "What about the women?"

    "Fuck the women!"

    "Have we got time?"

    Sorry mate...got sidetracked. Left me wondering if the redskins drank before whitey put them on the reservations. ("Sitting Bull Beer"..."White Cloud Whisky"..."Black Foot Banana Daquiri".)
    Never mind...must be something I ate.

  • Exchanges of pigs, cows were all the rage! Now beer.

    By Blogger Miss Natalie, at 12:37 AM  

  • If you have to stay constantly inebriated a solid month after the wedding, does that portend to a happy marriage?

    I would only go on a one-month bender if I made a mistake and married a transexual. And maybe only then if she always wanted to get on top.

    What was the divorce rate in ancient Babylon?

    Do we have any statistics?
