I was discussing, with my sister, gay marriages. And I'm curious how heterosexual traditions would, if at all, transfer to homosexual marriages. Like, who takes who's last name? Will their still br bridal showers? I'm sure bachealor/bachealorette parties will take place.

The more I think about it, those traditions don't matter much (except the bachelor(ette) parties), and perhaps a whole new set of traditions are needed.

when i get married, i'm keeping my own name, not having a bridal shower or a bachelorette partyy/hens' night.

regardless of whether it's to a man or a woman.

bridal showers are lame anyway, who's idea of fun is really going to be a group of people tittering over toaster ovens and discreet negligees?

what's the purpose of a discreet negligee? either you're sleeping in it, or it ends up on the floor anyway. that said, toaster ovens are cool. don't knock the almight toaster oven. heh.

my thoughts, when i've thought about it, has been about proposing. i figure i'll probably propose to the girl i wanna marry, but there is a part of me that wants to be on the receiving end. though not really.

but that tradition's already changed much, and these days the couple goes out and buys the ring together and all that stuff. so who knows?

It'll be a game of marital chicken. Who proposes first. ;)
