It's official!

Two worlds collided when a Jonas brother and a Stark sister exchanged their vows in a secret wedding ceremony.


Joe Jonas, 29, and Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner, 23, said "I do" in Las Vegas at Chapel L'Amour inside A Little White Wedding Chapel on Wednesday night.

A few hours earlier, Jonas reunited with his brothers to perform their first show together in a decade at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards.

From there, select attendees from the awards show were whisked away to witness the couple exchange their vows, as Turner, clad in a white jumpsuit and gold Gucci mules, walked down the aisle towards the altar where her man stood waiting.

And what Vegas wedding is complete without an Elvis impersonator to officiate?

Not this one.

Elvis once said, only fools rush in, but Jonas and Turner had already taken their sweet time after dating since 2016 and announcing their engagement in October 2017.

The $600 ceremony was attended by Brothers Nick and Kevin as groomsmen in matching gray suits and was captured on DJ Diplo's Instagram via livestream.

Turner could be heard repeating the words:

"I thee wed.... and I love you... and I thank God He gave me you."



Elvis then prompted the couple to repeat in unison:

"I promise you, I will never leave you. I will love and trust you all the days of my life."

Turner was instructed to kiss the groom's candy ring, according to the Daily Mail, and gave one long lick before Elvis instructed to Jonas:

"You may kiss the bride."

And that he did, followed by whoopin' and a hollerin' inside the humble chapel.


Twitter was genuinely surprised by the bargain wedding ceremony and offered their congratulatory responses.





Jonas is now happily a part of the family.


According to PEOPLE, online records show the pair applied for their marriage license in Clark County, Nevada earlier in the day.





Music was provided courtesy of Dan + Shay, who performed an acoustic rendering of "Speechless."




Jonas's sister-in-law, Priyanka Chopra-Jonas, served as Turner's maid of honor.



The Vegas wedding is a prelude to their wedding in France, something Jonas alluded to prior.

We can expect a second ceremony this summer.

Some years ago, I had to advise a college friend to stop chasing the girl he was interested in at the time. She'd already turned him down. Explicitly. At least two or three times.

He wouldn't take no for an answer and didn't see anything wrong with his behavior.

Perhaps he'd seen too many movies where the guy eventually breaks through the girl's defenses and essentially coerces her into going out with him?

Parents make mistakes. We want to believe that parents are doing there very best to raise their kids, but sometimes they do more harm than good.

Research into childhood trauma didn't actually begin until the 1970s, so we don't have as much knowledge about our mental health as adults as we might like.

However, a study that followed 1,420 from 1992 to 2015 found conclusive results about childhood trauma:

"'It is a myth to believe that childhood trauma is a rare experience that only affects few,' the researchers say."
"Rather, their population sample suggests, 'it is a normative experience—it affects the majority of children at some point.'"
"A surprising 60 percent of those in the study were exposed to at least one trauma by age 16. Over 30 percent were exposed to multiple traumatic events."

Not all of the things our parents do that were not so helpful technically classify as trauma, but it definitely has an effect on us as we get older.

On the outside, so many professions and careers look glamorous, financially enticing, and fun.

Often we sit back in our own lives and wallow in our dead-end jobs with that "wish I could do that for a living mentality!"

But if you look a little closer or, much like Dorothy Gale in OZ, just wait for a Toto to push the curtain back, you'll see that a lot more is going on behind the scenes.

And the shenanigans we don't see, make all that fun... evaporate.

So many careers and high power industries are built on a foundation of lies, backstabbing, and stress. And not in that fun "Dynasty" way.

That quiet, dead-end gig may not be so bad after all.

Redditor MethodicallyDeep wanted hear all the tea about certain careers, by asking:

What is a secret in your industry that should be talked about?
