Getting married in front of millions

How many people attended your wedding? Well, for Bethany Phillips & Geoffrey Dubie that number might be in the millions. But they won’t know until New Year’s Eve…the night they’ll be getting married…in Times Square!

Bethany and Geoffrey are the winners of Get Married’s Times Square New Year’s Eve Wedding contest. Their ceremony will be held in Times Square on New Year’s Eve and the reception at the Hard Rock Café. Meanwhile, it will all be streamed on the web at http://www.getmarried.com/timessquare. The contest provided by “Get Married” put the wedding plans in the public’s hands; all aspects of the special night were chosen by total strangers. Stacie Francombe, Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Get Married Media, said the couple stood out among the 2,000 other submissions because of their touching story of how they first met. Bethany, Geoffrey and Stacie tell Kiran Chetry and Joe Johns about the upcoming nuptials.

The blizzard: taking a toll on residents and elected officials

Snow is not only taking a toll on the residents of cities hit by the blizzard, but also on the reputations of government officials. Mayors of cities up and down the eastern seaboard are used to being judged on how well they respond to snow storms, and this blizzard is no exception.

New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg has been criticized for not doing enough to clear up the Big Apple’s streets but across the river, Newark mayor Cory Booker is being praised for his hands-on approach. John Avlon speaks to Kiran Chetry and Joe Johns about the blizzard and how your elected officials are responding.

Is it illegal to read your spouse's email?

The old adage in marriage is "What's yours is mine and what's mine is yours" but apparently that isn't the case when it comes to email. A man in Michigan is facing felony charges from reading his wife's gmail account. The prosecutor in the case is using a criminal statute that typically pertains to internet hackers but the man counters that his wife left her passwords for him to see. But who is in right? We talk to a legal expert, Paul Callan, about the precedent and a psychologist, Jeff Gardere, about what is morally responsible.
