Call me old-fashioned, but I knew my husband for 10 years before marrying him. We'd been together forever before our professional and love lives aligned one gorgeous spring morning at Old St. Joseph's Church in Society Hill.

I've heard of speed dating, but speed weddings always seemed like plot lines for lame movies or stunts to be pulled by Britney Spears. Now, thanks to Assemblyman Lou Greenwald (D-Camden), my daughter will be able to marry on demand if we still live in the Garden State when she makes the mistake of a lifetime.

Greenwald's bill (A-4366) purports to boost New Jersey's tourism industry. How? By eliminating that pesky 72-hour waiting period and streamlining residency requirements for those itching to get hitched. (Theoretically, the rules are "cumbersome" for out-of-state couples who then abandon plans to wed in Cape May.)
