Strange Wedding Stories

June is the most popular wedding month; it derives its name from Juno, the Roman goddess of
marriage. It was thought that couples who married in June would be
blessed with prosperity and happiness. This article from Newser.com and written by me in DJS talks about four very unusual weddings.

  1. Oh, it was so nice to read something besides dunning letters! Thanks again, Carlos. I understood it all except a few names, plus I had forgotten the state abbreviations. One I can't figure out though: on page 3 second column, 8th line, "has planned a ___-country honeymoon…" Is this a brief form I don't know about? Can't figure it out.

    1. Thank you! The names can be troublesome when they are foreign: the first two were French Canadian (Dominic Husson and Louise Veronneau), and in the groom-switch story, the names were Indian, so that was a little complicated!

      About that outline, it is "multi."

  2. Is Husson to be pronounced in the English or the French manner? If the name has an English pronunciation, then Carlos has spelled it right in Gregg. If the French pronunciation is proper, then I have no idea how to spell it in Gregg, what with the French [u] and [on] sounds. Is there an accepted way to write French vowel sounds in Gregg?

    1. I was thinking of the English pronunciation when I wrote it. However, in Sténographie Gregg (DJS), the name is written exactly the same, but without the dot because the h is silent.

      In Sténographie Gregg, the oo-hook covers both the "ou" and "u" sounds in French, and "son" (or "çon") is written as in English (s-n).
