] what say you to the specific case of the newlywed Knightley's kissing in front of everyone outside the church - is that an "extenuating" enough circumstance?
] I'd say that this was a respected ritual , expected part of the goings-on, a sign that all is well with the happy couple. After all,the vicar says, as part of the marriage ceremony, "Now you may kiss the bride."
Ah, but the Church of England wedding ceremony does not offer any such osculatory suggestion: http://www.pemberley.com/janeinfo/compraym.html
