Let's start this off by saying... sure, you can get married - or you can get married. I know what you're thinking: "It's the same meaning you idiot."

While yes, you're technically right but a lot of people think "getting married" means having a full-on wedding ceremony complete with the church bells, family members, the hours of picture taking throughout the day, etc. You know the drill. But then, there's simply just... getting married. I'm not talking about the courthouse either...
