For decades, we have heard of couples that run off to Las Vegas to obtain the equivalent of fast-food marriages. You just walk in, put your money down and they pronounce you man and wife. The results of a rash decision are not usually good results.

I was saddened to hear of a recent article in the “Sacramento Bee” about three wedding chapels in Los Angeles that not only offer quickie marriages, but also are now providing instant divorces.

According to the article, some couples get married one day and divorced the very next! Needless to say, the so-called “wedding chapel” makes its money at ‘both ends’. And, I don’t think that’s something to be proud of.
