A day after he was indicted on charges of third-degree aggravated assault for allegedly knocking his fiancée unconscious, Ravens running back Ray Rice and Janay Palmer got married. Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith said today that he visited Rice and Palmer after Friday's ceremony and they are "in a good place. " "Everyone knows that we're tight.

Rep. Patricia Schroeder said after it was revealed that the Marine Corps wanted to ban married recruits, "If they are not allowed to be homosexuals, and they're not allowed to be married, what are they supposed to do, take cold showers?"It is pretty easy to have fun with the Marines on this. Certainly, the way the attempt at policy change was handled was inept. The order was issued before the commandant had cleared it with the secretary of the Navy or the secretary of Defense. So no sooner had the directive gone out than it was rescinded.

At Tom and Marcia Lewis' house in Annapolis, the future meets the past. Last year the couple installed solar panels on the roof of their 110-year-old frame house in the city's Historic District. "We're very much in favor of alternative energy sources," Marcia Lewis says. Residential solar energy sales are booming in the United States, and property owners are increasingly finding ways to combine historic preservation with energy preservation. The Lewises had their panels installed on the back roof of their three-story home on Conduit Street.

WASHINGTON - Sometimes government forms just don't give you enough room to say what you really want to say. When the census form or tax form asks for marital status, I look for a box that says, "Married - and proud of it." Or, "Married - and let me tell you, it hasn't always been easy all of these years, but we've stuck to it and ..." But, no. Uncle Sam doesn't care. You only get a few little boxes to describe your life to the government. As a result, you get a lot of statistics that tell you about changes in our population and precious little explanation for why the change is happening.

Washington They were in love, madly in love, when they met -- two teen-agers from a lower middle class suburb in Prince Georges County. By age 16, she was pregnant with a child no one wanted them to have.Six years later, after several break-ups and reconciliations, after he'd become famous and wealthy as a boxer and she'd dropped out of school to support her son, he asked her, on the eve of his first championship fight, to marry him.The public saw it as a storybook romance: ". . . the stuff of dreams, of fantasies little girls fall asleep with," a newspaper columnist wrote after their huge church wedding in 1980.

Over dinner or coffee or drinks -- whatever incarnation the first date happens to take -- Mark Woodard will have some ver- sion of the same conversation with the woman across the ta- ble."You've never been married?" she will undoubtedly ask th42-year-old lobbyist. "Well, why is that?"a subject that has to be served up, chewed on and digested early in the date, sometime around the foie gras or mixed greens, Mr. Woodard has found."There's a presumption to be overcome," believes the assistant executive director for the Maryland Association of Counties.

When I got married and it came time to decide what to do about my surname, I'll admit I took the easy way out. I kept my own last name for business purposes, but legally, I changed my name to my husband's. It seemed like a good idea at the time, as if having the same last name would make us feel more united.Still, sometimes I can't help but feel a little dissatisfied with my decision (and not just because I'm the third Sue in his family). Riding up in an elevator at a convention, a man looked at my badge and asked about the name.

ANDY SCHIFF AND HIS girlfriend, Melanie Ufema, and two of their friends were mere feet away from emptying their pockets of loose change in the security line at Denver International Airport when Schiff suddenly stopped. He dropped to one knee, and instead of loose change, pulled a diamond ring out of his pocket. "Melanie, will you marry me?" he asked. Schiff's buddy had a video camera rolling -- he was in on it, and everyone had agreed they should "document the trip" -- so it was pointed at a stunned but grinning Ufema when she said, "Yes."

Oh the Casanovas of Canton! The neighborhood seems so wholesome -- all those bright young things going to yoga class and drinking at bars on the square -- but it turns out Canton is full of people looking to cheat.  That's according to the folks at Ashley Madison, a website for married people who wish to go hiking on the Appalachian Trail, Mark Sanford-style. Fully one-tenth of the website's subscribers in the Baltimore region live in Canton, according to a news release from the site.

Reigning NFL MVP Adrian Peterson of the Minnesota Vikings has been criticized for his decision to play in Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers despite the fact that a son - that he had only recently learned existed - had died of head injuries consistent with child abuse. Mr. Peterson, a running back known for his personal and professional toughness, said he never thought about not playing, and while some commentators criticized the decision, his teammates and fellow athletes rallied to his side, saying the man should be permitted to seek whatever solace he could at such a time.

Of the many words from the Maryland Court of Special Appeals in the matter of Meredith Cross v. Baltimore City Police Department, I like these best: "Costs to be paid by appellant. " That's double-good news for city taxpayers: We're on the hook for neither the back salary of a police officer who married a convicted murderer nor for the costs of bringing an audacious appeal of her firing to court. What we have here is formal affirmation that a woman has a right to marry anyone she wishes, including a gangster, but not a right to be a Baltimore cop. That was pretty much the court's conclusion Tuesday in the Cross case, echoing Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. from late-19th-century Massachusetts.

A recent Pentagon announcement made it clear that same-sex spouses of U.S. military personnel will begin receiving full benefits immediately. But once military service ends, they may be out of luck. LGBT veterans and their partners could find themselves unable to receive equal veterans' benefits due to a portion of U.S. law, according to a letter written by Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki . After the Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act in June, the federal government was quick to announce that married same-sex couples would receive all federal marriage benefits.
