You know, I never read the wedding announcements in the NY Times....too hoity-toity for me. But I am in love with Gawker's rating system for them. Here is a sample rating:

Victoria Potterton, Austin Zalkin: 13 points

Victoria graduated magna cum laude: +2
Austin graduated cum laude: +1
Victoria is graduating from Yale with a combined medical and MBA degree: +4
Austin is "ideal" man-age: +1
He's an i-banker: +2

and a bit of their scoring system:

Our patented rating system:
