This is our 100th episode special and we discuss our commitment ceremony and the way it incorporated our political beliefs. This includes our anarchist, atheist, pro-queer, pro-feminist, vegan and level 5 (or 6) straight edge (drug free) ideologies. For more on why we reject marriage, check out our discussion below – taken from episode 28:

The episode features a return of the segment ‘When Karl Pilkington Makes Sense’ – this time it is on overseas weddings. We also discuss our wedsite (password: seashells), some of the wedding traditions we threw out the window, our commitment rings (Katie’s, Nick’s), and we play our entire commitment ceremony as well as voicemail from “the usual Jon” on why he doesn’t want a marriage OR a commitment ceremony. You can view some pictures from our ceremony here. See Offbeat Bride for more on alternative weddings/commitment ceremonies.

*A video of our commitment ceremony is coming soon.
