2 questions in The One With The Lesbian Wedding

The One With The Lesbian Wedding - S2-E11

Question: Why did the gang not understand why Ross didn't want to go to the wedding? Most people wouldn't go to their ex wife's wedding.

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: They felt that enough time had passed that Ross should be able to put the past behind him, and he and Carol were friends and they shared a child together. Ross had also moved on from that relationship, and was now in love with Rachel, and had in fact, always been in love with her.

The One With The Lesbian Wedding - S2-E11

Question: Slightly more wide-ranging a question than just Friends, but it's relevant at the moment. With Massachusetts being in the news for offering same-sex weddings, and apparently being the first state to fully sanction it, was the wedding in this episode (back in the mid '90s) based on any then-current law, or just made up for the purposes of the plot?

Jon Sandys

Chosen answer: Same-sex weddings have been performed for quite some time in the United States. They simply didn't have the sanction of law or the benefits (and costs) that come with it. The ceremonies were purely for the sake of the supporting friends and family of the couple making the commitment.

Mistakes

When Rachel finds out that Ross and Julie are getting a cat, watch Rachel's neck. When she says "together?" she's not wearing a necklace; cut to Ross and Julie for a fraction of a second, then when it cuts back to Rachel saying "both of you?" she's suddenly wearing a necklace. It then disappears again when she says "isn't that just lovely?" hanging off the side of the tray she's holding.
