In my faith, it is indeed a sacred institution and I believe it will continue to be sacred, with or without jokes. When two become one through this Sacrament they are bringing God into the frey, if you will, and historically that has strengthened the union.
My God, "man" if it wasn't for His help I would not have had a chance at continuous bliss with my Aine True Love. I need all of the help I can get! I could not have done it without Him!
