A bit odd.

But as for the whole "lol sex" thing, it was the mention of the fact that (And here I quote): "we will be visiting that subject right away" that got me thinking along those lines.

I mean, 2 plus 2 is 4.

Naahh, I kid. We're cool.  wink
I was thinking similar things. I think it is safe to say we shippers want to see all the grisley details as they unfold.
Now, having said that, I have faith that the writing staff will do the F&L storyline justice.

Marriage could work and keep the story interesting since they'd be true newlyweds, not having known each other biblically. It may not take Leela long to get a little bored of the physical part, but you know Fry would be in seventh heaven for months (years, decades, forever?).

Marriage would change the nature of the relationship; less passionate tension and more hum-drum maintenance of the relationship. I still think a period of serious dating would be the best choice. I couldn't stand to see it go on as it is. As clueless as Fry can seem, it would be unrealistic for him to take rejection indefinitely.

I dunno... every married couple I know hates each other. Bleak and monotonous domesticity seems to be a love-killer.

All the people I know who are married are happy, most of them with children too. People have their problems, but if they seriously love each other then they won't fall apart.

I was a bit gutted when I first heard that the new series would start 2 years after the last one, but now I've had time to brood over it I think it could work brilliently. It;s a great way to focus on Fry and Leela as everyone will want to know what happened between them during those missing years! DXC knows we all want to see the "point" where they got together and he won't let us down! I'm curious to know how the writers will do it, but it'll be interesting that's for sure!

It puts them into their thirties. Pretty soon Leela's huge boobs will start sagging, and fry will develop even more of a beer gut.

1 Corinthians 13. (99%)

TLF, Bending Units are not religious. They however know to search and one of them also knows a bit of your soul      smile

Seriously TLF, you and Cyber sometimes make me smile... in a good way (CA makes me smile in a grin way).

[Stuff to put in the new DD thread] The truth about marriage is in between you and Coldangel (a cynical non-adapted ...guy - although he knows how to get by, oh yes). It is not just honey, but also it is not always bitter and boring - Ok, unless it is on the point (or beyond that) of breakup - so let's talk of a normal marriage. Yes the boredom factor may be there, but so is in any relationship. Let Fry_B (or Ovidiu, whichever) the Bending Unit tell you the truth: It is a struggle. As Shiny (yes I know I keep quoting Shiny, she has her moments of Shiness] once said, nothing worth having is easy. Why ? Because (most) humans rarely want somnething that's easy to get. Sooo... you have to fight to keep the marriage in line. There are ups, and highlights, and downs, and despair sometimes.

So saying that Fry & Leela being married would kill the storyline is utter rubbish - and the fact that someone that good at telling stories other than dealing with marriage, obviously, and openly having little experience on the opposite sex psyche says it does not make it true. How about listening to someone married ? Huh ? Huh ? You have no idea... anyway.

A marriage can be as much as bumpy as a defacto or anything else. A marriage can have betrayal, heroism, cowardness, and... passion.. although too much can destroy it (funny enough).

My ..er... 100 dollars ?

[EDIT] Spellcheck. I wrote that too fast and with too much wine onboard. As you know Bending Units need alcohol to power their cells. OH YEAH. I never want to grow out of a BU! TLF, and remember - God made water into wine he (or she?) must know something!

Ugh... I like women in their thirties. and in their forties. And fifties. and... it's all in the character , not in the boobs. Boobs can be pumped full of silicone, the soul however...

Leela would keep her shape no doubt, even after she will be with child(ren). She's the type. And she better poke Fry with the cattleprod until he loses the gut. She would change his miserable life around and probably increase his life expectancy if she married him. So I hope she does. For the sake of them both. And BTW CA, I hope you find Leela's equivalent one day. As a police officer that'll book you for being too sexy and that you will fall in love with  smile

Stuff about them getting married.
Marriage Shmarriage.
Having Fry and Leela married would ruin it for me because it just seems like...something anybody can do. I don't know, I guess the media has ruined any sense of love or marriage or happy happy joy joy lala land for me...It all seems so fake. You just do it because everyone else is.
"Oh, it doesn't make any sense to me."
"Of course not, you're robot."
Yes. Anyway. Marriage is overdone. It has lost any meaning. Back in the old days of courtship and bells and whistles, it might have gotten a swoon out of me when, in those old films, the man would prance around doing his mating dance then ask for eternal mateship. But that concept has been worn thin..it used to mean you'd be with this person and stick by them yadda yadda...but how many people were dreadfully unhappy in that union? Why do you think they invented divorce? Weeeee, pessimism to the max!  big grin

Gee, that's very skeptical. So, will you never marry?

Marriage is not the same as.... Never. Similar, yes. Why do it... I believe it has been discussed already - see what Cyber has said... er... I don't know where - here or in the DD thread. You do it if you meet the right person and you want to make that commitment. Anyway, Females want that to happen a lot more, so ask yourself my question - see above. But ask it in perspective, or your future self will laugh her ass off (or smile in an understanding and mature way) reading what you posted here  tongue

I'm actually surprised to hear that... how old are you, any1else - approximately and if I'm not intruding?

I just turned 19 on Monday. I'm just a youngin'...but I know that a lot of the things I say now I'll look back on and think I was an idiot for saying them. I know this because I seem to do that every year/day/second of my life already anyway.  big grin

Anyhoot…
No, I can't see that I'd marry. See, what I meant by 'it's been overdone' is that it no longer is a commitment. My parents only got married because I was conceived, they separated when I was 3 years old but got back together for some unfathomable reason, and I've been stuck with them annoying me in the process of annoying each other ever since. I’m like their little journal they confide their problems in, rather than them addressing each other with them. My dad has even told me that when I leave home he probably will as well. I guess this sort of shows where my bleak view comes from… I just think it’s silly to ‘commit’ when it’s not always appropriate. A lot of the time people just aren’t ‘right’ for each other, and they shouldn’t have to be forced to stay together by an imaginary bond. Not only is it making them unhappy, but other people (like me damnit!) as well. I mean, is it not uncomfortable when you’re around a couple and they start arguing with each other over something stupid? Have I gone off track? I like to blather on… Well, I can’t see myself wanting to get married, I’d be happy if I could find someone who likes me for who I am and like them for who they are in return. Even if it doesn’t last, there’s just some experiences one needs to experience in order to…have experienced them? Meh, I know what I mean.

Humm...If I can direct your attention to Xmas Story (just to keep with contemporary issues)  - Isn’t it enough that Fry went out and bought Leela a gift and risked his life at the top of an extremely tall building to retrieve it when it flew away? And then also to have her know he was out there when it was dangerous, go out to find him anyway, AND save him from falling to his death? They already show each other how much they care and whatnot, why do they need some ceremony and a piece of paper to show that these things were real and not just to pass the time?

Although my biological parents split when I was five and my father is a dangerous sociopath who I have had to beat the shit out of on more than one occassion. That in itself is actually very simple, clear-cut - there is no ongoing tension as with your case. My step-father and his predecessors however........

I thought Fry and Leela weren't going to get together until the very last episode made, so how are they going to manage that if the new series is set 2 years later? I'm confused now. I can't see them getting married in the new series, unless they did during the missing years and something went wrong. They could do the whole series as a flasback but I can't see how that would work and they need to allow for making more seasons.

It could be disinformation. The did say they'd put out false plotlines to keep everyone guessing.
And guessing is really all we can do. We can say what we'd *like* to see, but that kind of speculation is really rather pointless. In the end we just have to wait and trust that those brilliant minds produce something remarkable.
They haven't let us down before.

Yeah, I mean if it were not for the hard working guys n gals in blue most places would be torn apart by the selfish, greedy, and downright EVIL people of society. ANARCHY would result in loss of life aswell as property, with no ill effects for the culprits, law would collapse and nations would turn to rubble. Just because YOU are a scheming evil bugger bent on world domination Joel, it doesn't make them bad people. I like cops, if anything I'm an International Law enforcer.
