You only got married at the JOP because you were pregnant...

 Or had already had a child. I'm thinking most people go to the courthouse and not have a REAL wedding because of one of those 2 reasons.

EDIT: I am talking about going to the courthouse, not having a JOP marry you at your wedding.

 I had a JOP at my REAL wedding because we aren't religious and didn't want to be married in a church. I had my first child a year later.

Or smart people who think expensive weddings are ridiculous.

Some people just prefer to spend the money on the honeymoon, not a big gaudy stressful wedding. That was MY reason, anyway.

Not true.  I have friends that were married by JOP because that is what they could afford and wanted. It had nothing to do with being pregnant or already having a child.

I had a real wedding on the beach. It just so happens that one of my husbands friends is a JOP and officiated.

My mom and her husband got married at the JOP. She was post-menopausal, so neither of those were her reasons. They just wanted to be married w/o the hooplah. It's been 9 years for them. They're very happy.

Nope, I really didn't care for a "real wedding". I was pregnant, but he was going to propose anyway. :)
