There’s a very important question we don’t talk about enough: should kids be allowed at weddings? Now you might be saying “What a stupid question. Of course they should! A wedding is about family and togetherness and marking an important day in the lives of people we love!” By bear in mind that we’re not talking about kids as in high school, we’re talking children. People at the stage of humanity where pretty much all you do is scream and run and remain oblivious to social cues. Is that really an element we want at an expensive, carefully planned event?

Consider these bits of testimony from people who have witnessed the effects first hand.

I don’t think we need to see any more evidence; it’s clear that weddings are not a place for kids. Henceforth anyone bringing tiny child persons to a wedding shall be sentenced to spend the entire time getting dirty looks. It is so ordered by this imaginary internet court. *gavel gavel*

But what say you, people of the jury?
