How about 'Dumb' and 'Dumber?'

A Sacramento couple has refused to sign their marriage documents because of California's new wording that refers to two people getting married as "Party A" and "Party B" rather than "bride" and "groom."

Rachel Bird and Gideon Codding say they're old-fashioned and don't approve of the appellations that were changed to allow for same-sex weddings.

"We are traditionalists -- we just want to be called bride and groom," said Bird, 25.

Since they refused to sign the documents, their marriage isn't recognized by the state. Does "living in sin" violate their traditions? Or, are they just planning the traditional lawsuit?

Full story here.

The state of California might not recognize their union, but God does. The marriage certificate is a legal formality. So, technically they are not living in sin. Why can't the state just offer both forms, one that says A and B and one that says Bride and Groom?
