9:23 p.m. ET: It only makes sense that a wedding photographer would have the most piercing insight on pre-nuptial couples.. and this Buzzfeed article is full of some interesting gems:

“I’d say 75 percent of the couples do really seem to like each other. But the other 25 percent makes you ask, are these people really getting married? Do they even talk to each other? Some couples complain about kissing for the camera. They’ll just do a peck. Some couples just aren’t into PDA but you can tell they’re still in love. But sometimes it really seems like the couple doesn’t even like each other. Also, nine times out of ten, the bride is more attractive than the groom.”

8:59 p.m. ET:“Eagle Center struggles to supply American Indian’s rituals” .. a rather intriguing headlines from our pals at Reuters.

7:37 p.m. ET: You could call it a high-stakes game of phone tag… but when one debt collection tormented Diane Mey, a West Virginian woman who didn’t owe them a dime, she turned the tables and sued, winning an astounding ten million dollars.
