The "Well it was Vegas so it seemed like a good idea" spiel is a great one, and requires no further detail.

Actually, I do not think I would play this off as if it was a spur of the moment decision, for a few reasons.

a) It's not true. Not saying you have to tell him you've been planning it for months and months, but really, I wouldn't lie to him. That's stooping to his level, since he'd rather lie when the truth sounds better.

b) For people that know impolite, it's going to be fairly *obvious* that it's not true. impolite does a lot of planning and strategizing for most things, and IMHO it would be pretty out of character for imp to decide on the spur of the moment in Vegas to do something as serious as getting married.

c) DN needs to understand that this relationship is real and permanent. If he gets it into his head that this is a quickie wedding, he might think it isn't real and thus not understand that the marriage *must* be respected. Not that I actually expect him to respect the marriage much, but you don't want to give him any excuses.
