Married by computer

Would you let a computer preside over your wedding?

It's been done -- just read this couple's story. Of course, the article notes computers don't yet have the credentials to officially marry couples.

For some reason, I don't have a huge problem with the possibility of computer ministers. I'm more likely to take issue with other technology-based offenses, like couples who live-tweet their weddings.

That said, I can't imagine myself shedding a tear while a robotic voice tells a groom to kiss his bride.

And if you choose the computer route, I'll have no sympathy when your minister freezes mid-ceremony.
