Our landlords have put our building up for sale. After much talk we made a bid, and got married. Yeah, just like that. Most common law has made marriage redundant, but in Ontario the laws for property are different, so we did it. I texted my mom, " got married" she texted back "if you are kidding I'll kill you, if you are serious I will kill you, then bring you back to kill you again". Not sure how to reply to that. Frankly with my mother never having been married I did not think it would be a big deal to her. I mean, start to finish.... 25 minutes.
