    Default Marine meets woman in bar, gets married in Vegas

    How is this even news?

    Nobody reported on this same event in 1992 when I did it.

    Congratulations Chaos, hope it works out for ya.

    Could have been polite with a link to the story, but google is our friend. It's the Warrior Monk.

    I met my wife in a bar in 1984. The interesting this is she was a teetotaler. Nobody wrote a news article about us, either.

    We got married in Maryland.

    I like our story better. We met in a real estate business meeting. She decided that day to move in with me. The marriage... was few years later.

    Bulldog Mattis got married? To a physicist? By an Elvis impersonator?

    And why is the new link coming from the sports section?

    My brother was in Mattis’ high school class, but all he recalls is a guy who was mainly interested in hunting and fishing.
