I'm a master of journalism student at Carleton University in Ottawa. I'm
doing a 1/2 hour documentary on the meaning of the ritual of weddings in
Judeo-Christian North-American society.

I'd enjoy speaking with anyone familiar with the trends, issues, symbols,
and cultural importance of weddings today. I know it sounds broad but I'd
like to get a well-rounded view of the current academic analysis of our
rituals in our culture.

If anyone would like to offer a perspective on the ritual of weddings
please contact me either through this newsgroup or write me at my email
