View Full Version : Las Vegas - no more 24 hour wedding service

Aug 24th, 2006, 05:30 PM
Oh darn.
Now, where will Brittany Spears get married a 3rd time at
3:00 a.m some day.

Oh me, oh my.

Las Vegas closing down from 12:00 to 8:00 a.m. only though.
Can still get a license at midnight or near it!

Budget cuts.

Drunken men and women will have to wait until 8 a.m. to
get married after meeting the love of their lives at the
slot machines at Bally's or Treasure Island or The Golden

Maybe it's because marriage is so sacred that we (apparently) need Federal laws to protect it, so the drive-through Elvis impersonator 24-hour marriages in Las Vegas are a direct casualty.

Well, marriage is a sacred thing to most people, that's why
most people don't go to Las Vegas to get married. Most
people don't use the drive thru wedding chapel either.

A federal law was signed by one William Jefferson
Clinton in the 90's to protect traditional marriage.

Bigot Clinton.

Oh wait, never mind. He gets a pass.

We're only thinking about current moves right?

A const. amendment which will fail, and everyone involved
knows it will. However, more states have and will continue
to strengthen their existing male-female only marriage laws
in light of a few court cases pushed by a few that want
one states marriage laws applied to all the states.
It's a state law that overrides the issue in Nevada, and
rightly so. In the lovely State of Nevada, where you
can smoke in public buildings, buy a prostitute for a few
bucks, and eat and shop and gamble 24 hours a day,
you can no longer get a marriage license from 12:00 a.m.
to 8:00 a.m.

You can still get married, just get the license before
last call. Bars will have to say, hey, if she looks like
the love of your life, get down to city hall asap!

Been to Vegas?
I drive through it, but, rarely stop.

I'm not giving Bill Clinton a pass at all!

Yes, I have been to Las Vegas many times. It's a fun place in small doses.

O no...there goes my plan!

You can of course still get the $1.00 foot long hot dog and
a free drink at any slot machine from an old cocktail waitress
and all you can eat shrimp cocktails 24 hours a day.

<chuckle> I had exactly the same reaction even before reading your message. That headline might as well read, "Britney shocker..."

I can live with it, as long as you can still get a 24 hour Mexican divorce.
