    I wrote a long post and my phone killed it, so I'm keeping this one short: We married!

    Smoking is one of the leading causes of all statistics.

    Congratulations, workman! I was happily married for some 23 years, a widower for ten, and and now happily married for eight years, so I highly recommend it.

    Congratulations! I'm married for 5 years but we are together for 13 years now. Real childhood-love which lasts for a life. Like with pipes Our son is a little bit too young for pipes, but I hope that he will learn fast

    Congrats! Does she know you smoke a pipe?
    My father said that marriage is not a word but a sentence. I know, bad joke, but I have been married for uh, 40+ years? and she smokes a pipe too. So could be the start of something great!

    Congratulations!

    My 1st marriage was a torrential 7 months, but the second one is pushing 20 years.

    I concur with all of the above. Beautiful family, nice gift to self and may you live happily ever after.

    Of course, I can't make a post without adding my usual chaff, so I'll share a saying or two.

    T-shirt seen recently and, possibly, the secret to marital success, "I do what the voices in my wife's head tell her to tell me to do."

    Plaque in a cabin my wife and I stayed in a few years ago, " Marriage is like a game of cards. You start with two hearts and a diamond and by the end you're wishing you had a club and a spade."

    To type ð on my Macintosh Computer I use option+d. Glad I got it right! Faorese and Icelandic share some characters so I cheated a bit.

    Again, congratulations. It would be stating the obvious to say that yours is a good looking family. By the way, I'm also impressed by your wedding waistcoat.
