What happens in Vegas

I'm in shock over my friend, so I just had to write about it. When my hubby and I got married, we had known each other for 3 & 1/2 months. We were going to go to the JP and his mother asked us if we could wait a week, do it in her town, and have more of a "regular" ceremony. No church, but still a small ceremony with the family there, etc. My good friend (that goes to school with me) knew how serious I was and that it was right for me, but at the same time I know she thought I was crazy to make a comittment so soon. She has committment issues, but who wouldn't be concerned if they're friend did that.

Skip (1 & 1/2 years) to two days ago. She was visiting her boyfriend of 2.5-3 months. I wanted to see how things were going since they only met face to face during this trip. I knew it was going well, but hey...we girls stick together and check on each other. She informs me that they went to Vegas with friends and 4 double cocktails later were married. WTF?? I'm excited for her, but it's so unlike her. I haven't even met him (he lived in another state). I really assummed this only happen in movies, country music songs or to celebrities, but nope. It happens to real people.
