Amber and Dylan decide to get married. Dylan wants a simple, inexpensive wedding with pizza and beer. Amber wants a “traditional” wedding with 850 guests in a chateau in the South of France, catered by famed Belgian chef Piet Huysentruyt, with her gown made of brocaded silk spun by rare Indonesian spiders. When Dylan starts to object, a small tear begins to bead up in the corner of Amber’s left eye, her chin trembles and she stammers out something about “my special day.” What is the most likely result?

F. Amber and Dylan will find a sane compromise because they are so very much in love.

G. Dylan and Amber will find a sane compromise because, after all, it is only a wedding.

H. Piet Huysentruyt’s menu will feature dishes cloyingly named for the bride (example: “Amber-osia”).
