I came across the following post warning about the “sexist” history of many aspects of contemporary wedding ceremonies: https://www.mic.com/articles/139845/7-surprisingly-sexist-wedding-traditions-we-should-change-immediately
I found the authors alarm to be amusing. Who knew history was so politically incorrect?
