Marriage by proxy?

OK, so let me get this straight, in Montana, you can marry someone without them being there, or without them being contactable?

How can I be certain that I'm not married to someone from Montana?

Let's face it, nobody in their right mind would marry you whether you were there or not.

I suppose the question still stands though!!

Loke,
And you believe that everyone in Montana is in their right mind?

That's an interesting thought.

No indeed. That's why I left the question still standing as my objection was null and void.

Do you get it? do you ? do you?

Interesting. I wouldn't doubt if the law goes back to the old mail-order bride days. Once upon a time men out numbered women in this state so many men had to seek brides elsewhere. Come to think of it, things haven't changed much in that area.

I cant believe the arrogance of you men - perhaps the women dont hang with you because your noses are so high, it's tough to actually carry on an intelligent conversation.

The women arent that scarce here - we just choose not to make ourselves available to chauvinist red-necks!

Well, it looks like gonzostrike is back in the running for a bride. Now all he needs is to select a bride and get those pesky power of attorney papers.

Does that mean a rich white collar chauvinist or a politically correct sensitive 90's kind of guy red-neck would be ok?

Noooooooooooo! Shame on you, LM! heh heh

Hey, silknsnow, don't pay any attention to that remark. No one deserves that kind of treatment!

Fox could already be married to Gonzo and not know it yet. There's a match made in [img]graemlins/evilgrin.gif[/img]

So I'd have more luck if I were a plain ol' red-neck instead of one with one of them there fancy words attached to the front of it?

So, Rio, sounds like the Spanish pride of chauvinism continues in good health whether it be red-neck, rich white collar, sensitive or just plain ole ordinary chauvinism.

So, do you ski a lot in Utah by any chance? - [img]smile.gif[/img] - if I remember correctly, the men there have some interesting "chauvinistic" ideas that might match yours.

Hi LM! Thanks for the welcome. And you, too, Bonni! You know, if it wasn't for these guys, what would we have to snicker about??

Silknsnow -

I'm really disappointed in your 'Spanish' remarks. Being from Missoula, I figure you'd be much less inclined to use ethnic stereotypes.

I don't ski in Utah......not enough bars or the Carhartt crowd for my tastes. Besides, the chauvinists movement there uses all those nasty words that make us Montana men shutter like fidelity, responsibility, sobriety......

Spanish remarks? What about the Utahn remarks. I detest the notion of us Utahns being chauvinistic. Hardly the case. We are gentlemen.

silknsnow, meet dirtnsnow.
dirtnsnow, meet silknsnow.

He says he's a gentleman.

If you hook up, you can both be

Welcome silknsnow, seems like a few have some burrs under the saddle.

Hi Lucky -

You know how it goes! Was it Shakespeare who said "Me thinks thou dost protest too much"?

Perhaps the slighted gentlemen have not looked closely in the mirrors lately.

Rio doesn't seem to be able to find a bride in Montana. Hee, hee - maybe they are all running and hiding :

And my apologies to dirtnsnow, the gentleman from Utah, but Utah has a not-too-far-in-the-past history of men being able to have as many wives as they want but the same did not hold true for women having extra husbands. I dont know but that smacks of chauvinism to me? But I did not say that they were not gentlemen in Utah. They would have to be. I mean can you imagine having MORE THAN ONE wife p - - - - d off at you for whatever guys do wrong . . :

Aaahhh, isn't this fun!

You're certainly right on with this comment. This same thought always comes to mind when I see it pop up on the news, which it still does in Utah on occasion. Sometimes when I fall out of favor, even just one wife is one extra. [img]smile.gif[/img]

BTW, welcome to EpicSki. You'll learn alot, meet alot of different personalities, and as you can see, have a few laughs as well. Keep smiling.

It comes with the territory. Move to Utah you'll get bigamy jokes, move to Montana get sheep jokes. Start worrying when you stop laughing at them.

Welcome to the forum. Out of curiousity, why do you list Marshall over Snowbowl as your home mountain?

Your right in all respects. I've often said if I couldn't laugh at myself I'd have gone crazy long ago. BTW, I hope to get out there sometime. I haven't been to Montana, but friends who have skied there tell me it's great. I assume they were talking about the mountains and not the sheep. [img]smile.gif[/img] Take care.

Hardly the case. First of all, it wasn't a situation where anyone could go out and get married on a whim. In fact very few people did practice polygamy. I don't know how accurate this figure is, but I have heard that only 3% of all of the LDS church practiced it at the time. Also, a lot of these women had lost their husbands, and a lot of these cases revolved on care of the widows and their children. So I don't think chauvinistic motives were involved, although I see your point.

Who would WANT more than one husband to pick up after anyway?

Let's see....5 husbands:

5 remotes, 5 cases of beer chilling in the refrigerator at any given time, 5 sets of golf clubs in your closet, 5 times the mess on the floor around the toilet, 20 non-running cars in the yard...not to mention the methane expulsion....nah.
