COMPUTERIZED CONJUGAL BLISS: The Universal Life Church of Sunnyvale, California now boasts the world’s first ordained computer . . . “Rev. Apple”, named in honor of the electronics company that built it. So far, the terminal has married six couples, who punched in a “y” for “yes” when exchanging vows. The church is now planning to add a computerized “unwedding program” (or “digital divorce”) to the services it offers.”

Given the digital nature of their weddings, these intrepid couples should consider the legitimacy and legality of their marriages, unless the event was purely ceremonial. This is surely uncharted legal territory that has not withstood any legal test unlike weddings officiated by humanoid ULC ministers.
