Cindy Cashman and Mitch Walling are planning to get married at an altitude of approximately 300,000 feet in 2009. Rocketplane, the space tourism operator that will take them there won't begin test flights until at least 2008.
Other issues potentially threaten their big day. Austin lawyer Mike Slack suggested that getting married on the trip would not create a legal marriage because nobody has jurisdiction to confer recognition.
"It's a big deal to us that it's legal. I went through a lot, my attorney went through a lot, and in my opinion, it'll be legal. This is history. This is the ultimate adventure... Is this the American dream or what?" said Cashman.
