When you’re rich and bored you too can become an ordained minister and marry hapless couples in zany locales. Just ask his-most-honorable Sir Richard Branson.
The UK’s Daily Mail has the scoop:
Virgin Galactic boss Sir Richard Branson is planning to set yet another record ? by becoming the first man to marry a couple in space. The 58-year-old billionaire intends to conduct a ceremony 70 miles above the Earth on the first Galactic sub-orbital flight next year. He has already officiated at one wedding in mid-air. Last year he was ordained for the day in an online church to marry Virgin America marketing director Dimitrios Papadognonas and Coco Jones on a Virgin flight from San Francisco to Las Vegas.
I guess if you don’t recognize marriage as a sacrament instituted by God or the qualifications necessary to administer said sacrament then go for it, eh??
Boy, to have a friend like Sir Richard.
He also helped officiate at the wedding of Google co-founder Larry Page on his private island, Necker, in the Caribbean.?
For a little extra cash (the guy has to earn a living too you know) he’ll marry you AND help consummate the marriage.
A spokesman for Virgin Galactic told The Mail on Sunday: “We have had two bookings involving marriage, one to get married in space and the other for the couple to have their honeymoon in space.
What a guy, that Sir Richard. What’s next, exospheric marriage counseling?
