Bill Murray Gives the Best Advice
It's a well-known fact that actor Bill Murray can turn up anywhere, at anytime, inject your life with a dash of sage-like wisdom, and then disappear back into the world like some kind of burly fairy godmother. Events like these happen with such delightful randomness and frequency that there's a website devoted to tales of Bill Murray encounters.
One such appearance occurred this week, at a bachelor party in Charleston, WV. Murray is caught on video (posted on Deadspin) sharing his tip for deciding whether or not marriage is the right choice in a relationship. As you can guess from the fact we're talking about it, Bill's focus is on travel companionship.
You can watch the video above to get it straight from Murray's mouth, or see the quote below.
If you have someone that you think is the one...take that person and travel around the world. Buy a plane ticket for the two of you to travel all around the world and go to places that are hard to go to and hard to get out of. And...when you land at JFK and you're still in love with that person, get married at the airport."
While his advice is lovely, a couple cannot just get married at JFK Airport after arriving on a flight. The airport does have interfaith facilities and a chaplain, but there's the bureaucratic matter of the marriage certificate to settle first.
