The wedding is 6 days away and I must be going crazy because...

I read this this morning on seahorses and thought it was the sweetest thing ever:

"Before breeding, pairs court for several days, even while others try to interfere. Scientists believe the courtship behavior synchronizes the animals' movements so that the male can receive the eggs when the female is ready to deposit them. During this time they may change color, swim side by side holding tails or grip the same strand of sea grass with their tails and wheel around in unison in what is known as a “pre-dawn dance". They eventually engage in a “true courtship dance" lasting about 8 hours. When the female’s eggs reach maturity, she and her mate let go of any anchors and snout-to-snout, drift upward out of the seagrass, often spiraling as they rise. The female inserts her ovipositor into the male’s brood pouch and deposits dozens to thousands of eggs. Both animals then sink back into the seagrass and she swims away."

I told my fiance and I want to swim side-by-side holding tails with him forever! He said it makes him nervous about our first dance, hahahaha!
