Do you take this man...

Now that gay civil unions and marriages are becoming more prevalent (in some countries more than others, ahem ahem), here are the top 10 rules for the big day!

1) On the day of a gay wedding, it's bad luck for the two grooms to see each other at the gym.
2) Superstition suggests that, for good luck, the couple should have: Something bold, something flirty, something trashy, something dirty.
3) It's customary at gay and lesbian nuptials for the parents to have an open bar during the ceremony.
4) Gay wedding tradition dictates that both grooms refrain from eating any of the wedding cake because it's all carbs and sugar.
5) It's considered bad luck for either of the grooms to have dated the priest.
6) During the first dance, it's considered unlucky to use glow sticks, flags, whistles or hand held lasers.
7) For good luck at the union of a drag queen, the bouquet is always thrown in the face of a hated rival.
8) the reception hall must have a disco ball and at least one go-go dancer.
9) the wedding singer is not allowed to play/sing Let's Hear It For the Boy, It's Raining Men or I Will Survive.
10) the father of the Bottom has to pay for everything!

Haha, but all joking aside, the UK soap Emmerdale will be making headlines next week as the first primetime soap gay wedding takes place. And one of the grooms-to-be is half-Indian actor Matthew Bose's character, Paul Lambert! Bose, who is gay in real life, says "I'm proud it's Emmerdale that got there first. Shows like ours have a great responsibility to show things as they change and be cutting edge." The wedding, however, is considered a desperate attempt to keep the gay relationship together, as the character Paul has recently had a steamy one-night stand with a straight married man, creating an interesting gay love triangle.

I'm proud we'll have the first primetime gay soap wedding
