Pirate Marriages

Postby Almighty Doer of Stuff on Sun Jul 22, 2007 9:11 am

Ahoy! I have a question.

If a pirate couple were to desire a traditional pirate marriage, would they necessarily need a captain to do a ceremony? What if a captain wants to marry his lover? Do they need another captain? This is all specifically about traditional pirate marriages, of course. Not all pirate marriages need to be traditional, but we don't want to rule out tradition if there's a way to do it without paying some official to give us instructions.

May you have the blessings of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, cheese be upon him. Yarr.

Ack! This question has been answered.

ok.

Find a wench you are in love with.

Find a Captain with a ship.

Board said ship.

Perform the socially accepted vows (do you, XX take XX to be your lawfully wedded so and so).

Imbibe copious amounts of rum/grog/beer/wine/sake.

Eat copious amounts of Pasta.

Yarr. Emphasis added. I haven't seen those questions asked. In other words, I was asking if there were alternative traditions to the method you posted. Don't get your knickers in a bunch, matey.

I'll "set you up" - marry you and you sweetie that is( I am an ordained person)

actually marriage laws vary state by state--- some states allow the couple themselves to solemnize their own marriage- so it could be possible for the captain to marry his/her self to someone (perform their own marriage ceremony)-- my first "stop" would be with the clerk of the court in your area. I'm talking USA here- I really have no idea about other nations.

not sure if we have actual pirate marriage rules in regards to FSM

hope that helps a bit

I apologise.

1. you don't need a captain, but it wouldn't be too piratey, now would it.
2. You would need another captain, AFAIK.

'corse, these be more of guidelines really. :wink:

Not a problem, me hearty.

Thank ye for the help. From a legal standpoint, o' course we would need a clerk or ordained person to make it official. I just don't see why it's necessary from a religious standpoint to have someone else officiate between those being wed and His Noodliness. It's sorta like a lot o' Protestant religions, where they disagree with Catholicism's need for an ordained priest to act like a divine telephone between the faithful and their deity. Still, they need a minister to actually make their marriage official from a religious standpoint. I don't see why all religions should need to have something similar, especially if we all be equal beneath the Flying Spaghetti Monster. Hypothetically, the legal bits with the clerk and the religious parts could be done separately. There are plenty o' rituals a couple could do to declare their partnership, even if it ain't strictly traditional ones. Do we really need to be told when to exchange vows?

O' course, me darlin' and I ain't marryin' any time soon. Can't hurt to think about it ahead o' time, though. Maybe we will go for a traditional-type wedding, maybe not. We'll figure it out eventually, aarrgh.

The captain thing is just for the pirate atmosphere...All you really need is a mariage certificate, and beer.

No. "Wench" means "girl".


But feel free to marry whomever you choose.

So far as I'm concerned you can marry two man-wenches (good term, well coined), or even one of each (which can be fun). :wink:

It's not in the 12 suggestions so i must say that assuming both wives are consenting to this it is okay. And ofcourse if a man may have multiple wives then a woman should be allowed to have multiple husbands.
