Der Prinz had not been baptized at the time we were married, by a Methodist Air Force Chaplain. All the priests I’ve asked - both the flaky ones and the orthodox ones - have said we’re legitimately married, nonetheless.

Our pastor in Broken Arrow, the outrageously holy Father Gaalaas, performed a blessing of our marriage, witnessed by some random folks hanging around the church, but he said it wasn’t necessary.
