Defending festive weddings for cohabitors

My first impulse was to violently disagree with this Althouse post, but recent allegations that I spend too much time attacking Ann Althouse influenced me to hold back. I am glad to see that Lindsay Beyerstein has taken up the gauntlet. My friend Dana's wedding is the only one I have been to, and the fact that she and her fiance had been dating for seven years and living together for a good chunk of that time did not make the event any less special. Condemning someone's wedding as not "tasteful" or "intrinsically exciting" because you're aware of the fact that they have had sex with each other before is just bizarre.
