Summary: Twenty-five years ago, three young couples were married on the same day by the same newly ordained parson. Now pillars of the community, the couples gather to celebrate their anniversary. Pandemonium breaks out and relationships are hilariously re-evaluated when they discover that at the time of their marriage, the parson wasn’t yet legally licensed—and they’ve been living in sin!
