Illustration: Marriage

Marriage seems under assault lately. There is a new aspect to the disrespect for marriage. According to reports, in 1990, a man in Japan "married" his video game "girlfriend." There was a ceremony presided over by a priest, and a reception with a disk jockey and the requisite speeches. They even had a honeymoon of sorts. The groom carried the bride with him in his video gaming device. Too bad there was no real relationship.
