Actually, the law clearly states two things;
1) The catcher WILL be the next married, and
2) NO ONE may become wed till the 'catcher' (hereafter referred to as the party of the first part) does KNOWINGLY and WILLINGLY become lawfully wedded, by a duly authorized Supreme Being.
This, of course, does not include periphery parties who had previously made application to said state of wedded bliss. Maybe we can end the rash of weddings started by Mercy's and my own announcement several months ago.
