    I think jumping out of a plane is a good metaphor for marriage.

    Except for the parachute part.

    You know whats scary about marriage?

    Over 50% of couples stay married.

    Don't see the point of wearing a parachute if all that was going to happen upon landing is a marriage.

    She saw it from 1000-2000 feet you could see it better than the pictures did justice..granted 20 foot letters would have been even more noticeable hahah
