美语三级跳 (Go English) 019C讲 - “婚礼” 单元 高级课程

Professor: John got married to his wife Carmen a few months ago, and today he is meeting up with his friend Chuck to talk about his new married life.

John一定还沉浸在新婚的甜蜜中,肯定要向Chuck炫耀有老婆的幸福! 对吧,professor Bowman?

Professor: Uh ..... well, we will have to listen and find out.

Chuck: Man, John, I haven't seen you in forever! I can't even remember the last time we were able to get together.

John: Well, Chuck, you know I'm a married man now. Once you tie the knot, your weekends are spent doing housework and shopping for new kitchen appliances.

Chuck: That's why you've been too busy to hang out? Wow. Well you need to find some time, because the football playoffs are coming up and I want to watch it on your big TV!

John: (Sigh) Sunday is the day I have to go over to Carmen's parents' house to have dinner, so I don't think that's going to fly.

听起来,John并没有那么高兴。他说,自从结婚之后,他的周末生活就只剩下做家务和买东西,都没时间和朋友一起玩儿了。

Professor: That's right. I can tell you that once you tie the knot, your life is never the same.

是啊,一旦tie the knot - 结了婚, 人生就进入新阶段了嘛。对了,professor, Chuck想星期天去John家看橄榄球比赛,可John说,this isn't going to fly,这是什么意思呢?

Professor: If you say something isn't going to fly, that means it isn't going to work or be successful. For example, I was really hoping to travel to Europe this summer. But I don't have the money, so that plan isn't going to fly.

哦,就是行不通的意思。

Chuck: Well what else has been going on with you? Have you been following any of the same-sex marriage debate? I'm a big supporter.

John: Of course, I am too. I think every person should have the right to get married to whoever he loves, and then get nagged to death by that person for the rest of his life.

Chuck: Oh come on, John. It's a beautiful thing when two people love each other, and want to enjoy the rights of marriage together. All people should be equal, regardless of their sexual orientation.

John: I couldn't agree more! Gay men should have to endure married life just like the rest of us heterosexual men. It's unfair that they don't have to!

Chuck和John谈到same-sex marriage - 同性婚姻,他们俩都支持同性恋有权结婚,可是,John的理由怎么听着这么别扭!

Professor: Yes, I find it very interesting! Why do Chuck and John support gay marriage?

Chuck认为人人平等,所以都应该享有结婚的权利,不论他们的sexual orientation--性取向,是什么。

Professor: Exactly. But why does John support it?

John也说到了人人平等,可他的意思是, heterosexual men - 也就是像他这样的异性恋男人,要忍受婚姻生活的无奈,天天被老婆烦,所以,同性恋的人也该受同样的罪!

Professor: Right. What do you think about that, Winnie?

哎呀,不是所有男人都这么看待婚姻吧?

Professor: Of course not all men, Winnie. Just the married ones.

Chuck: Come on, John. I'm sure there are lots of great things about being married.

John: You're right, I'm exaggerating. Marriage is a very special bond, and it's really wonderful to have someone who I can always trust and rely on.

Chuck: Yeah, I guess you're right. Now if I can only find a woman who likes to watch football on Sundays, I think my life would be complete.

John: I'll ask Carmen if she has any friends who are cheerleaders.

你瞧,professor,男人并不是只会抱怨婚姻! John最后还是承认,结了婚,他就有了一个可以永远信赖和依靠的伴侣。

Professor: That's exactly right. And what is Chuck's view of the perfect woman?

Chuck说,如果他能找到一个和自己一样爱看橄榄球比赛的老婆,他的人生就美满啦! Professor, 你说一个beautiful cheerleader - 啦啦队美少女,能看上Chuck么?

Professor: Well, love works in mysterious ways!

这次的美语三级跳就播送到这里。

maybe my way isn't going to fly

Love works in mysterious ways! Do you know why? Let me tell you . Because in China most women they won't get married until they are fools. After the marrige , they will soon get awake and find that their spouses are not so good. What should they do then? Maybe evryone should know the answer...affairs!!!!

yes, marriage has a special bond, they made two person trust and rely on each other. but the way of finding that perfect one is tough. nowadays, people focus much on wealth the other one own. It is not going to fly.

I know the wedding ceremony in America is different from in other countries. On wedding day, the bride should take four things with her,something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue. It's traditional wedding.
