A marriage license should be like a fishing license - it expires every year and if you go out of state you can get a 3 day license. If you think about it, girls and fish have a lot in common. They are fun to catch and if you clean and prep them right, most are good to eat. Also if you decide to mount one, you know it's going to cost you plenty! If you bring one home (no matter how well you treat them) they start going bad, plus fresh ones are always better.
Practice catch and release.
