DiDio Attempts to Explain DC’s Marriage Ban; Will Scrap Last Williams/Blackman Batwoman Issues?

DC Comics’ PR has taken multiple hits this week, and this weekend is a major convention, so you know what that means: DC higher ups giving unsatisfying responses to fan outcry at Baltimore Comic Con. Specifically, we’re talking about Dan DiDio saying that superheroes should never have happy personal lives, Aquaman and Mera aren’t married, and that a new writer will be taking over Batwoman with issue #25.

Benedict Cumberbatch Has Made It Possible For Him To Marry You

Imagine it. You walk down the aisle on your special day and lock eyes with Benedict Cumberbatch. Then you turn to the side and go, “Oh, right. You.” Such is how I imagine any wedding the newly ordained actor officiates. Yes, that’s right, Cumberbatch can legally marry you. But not to himself, to your significant other. He explains, ”Two friends of mine are getting married and they really wanted a friend to perform the ceremony. So I went on the Internet and got ordained. I really know how to do weddings now! And I’m available!”

As much as I love this story, it still doesn’t beat Sir Ian McKellen marrying Sir Patrick Stewart.

Unfinished Scottish Law Might Let You Get Married by a Jedi in Scotland

Scotland legislature is currently considering a Marriage and Civil Partnership Bill with an interesting stipulation for a “third type of ceremony.” Designed to give secular yet philosophical organizations or movements that set themselves apart from organized religion or even religion in the first place the ability to hold legal marriage ceremonies, it allows “groups promoting a belief” to marry people.

Now, before you go “Oh, come on, nerds, just because they put some vague wording in you’ve connected it to Star Wars, stop seeing stuff that isn’t there,” you should know that it’s not us that’s saying this opens the door for actual Jedi weddings. It’s the Free Church of Scotland.

Facebook Introduces Same-Sex Marriage Icons

Just under a year and a half since announcing the option to proclaim a same-sex relationship on Facebook, the social network has now introduced new icons for those same-sex couples who get married! The new icons — two brides and two grooms (obviously) — will be featured on the Facebook Timeline when a user changes their status to “Married” and specifies that they are now in a same-sex marriage. Just in time for Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes to announce his own marriage to Sean Eldridge! Congratulations, gentlemen! Next: waiting to see an icon pop up on Anderson Cooper‘s Facebook page. We’ll go ahead and hold our collective breaths for that.

But you guys, this is so great! It’s like making up for Pride Month being only 30 days long! Better than a bonus second!
