Rules:

1. You can only win once per week. If you have already won, you can still guess, but if you guess correctly, no one will get the prize for the day.

2. Thread will close once someone has picked the correct answer, and I will contact them in game. This means, if I don't know your in game name, I cannot get a hold of you. If you have won, I will send you a PM to get your contact information (so keep those PM boxes clear!).

3. One guess per post! And please, do not spam with guesses.

4. Googling is acceptable as *most* days the DJ picks a question that cannot be googled.

More rules are subject to be incorporated if need be. So, lets just have some fun!

And now, for the impossible question of the day:

Forty percent (40%) of men say they would not have gone through with the wedding had their bride-to-be insisted on this.

Circumcision. (which I guess would be necessary if you had to change your religion to jewish, in order to get a jewish wedding)

Not the guy hyphenating his name, but just the female. You are correct though!

Does that mean that 40% won't get married unless the wife takes his family name?

Really?

That is so... grrr...

in the states it is a common practice for the wife to take the husbands name as her sir name many will swap the middle name they have from birth for the family name they are from .

Example a woman named Beth Ann Morgan gets married to a guy named Steven Henry Smith (note the names are random and made up i do not know anyone by the names listed above... End of disclamer)

her new name would be Beth (Ann or Morgan) Smith depending on which name she kept for her middle name. i have seen it done both ways in the same family.

my wife kept her middle name while her sister swapped for the madin name.

go figure cause i can not.
