The Internet Oracle has pondered your question deeply.
Your question was:

> Please, Wisest One, comment on the following:
> It is said: `If the bridegroom drinks therefrom before the bride, he

> Is this true? Is there a better, more modern way to determine this same
And in response, thus spake the Oracle:
} No, no, no. That one won't work at all anymore. Those "wedding
} planners" have the first sip of champagne scheduled like everything
} else on the little bridal checklist (item 127: Dance with bride's
} father. 145: Throw garter. 303: Have an affair.), so it's no good
} for prognostication. Here's an updated version:
} "If the groom sends the first e-mail from the honeymoon, than he
} will be dominant in the marriage; if the bride does, her filesystem
} will rule. (If they log on at the same time because they both
} brought computers on their honeymoon, the marriage will be a long
} and happy one.)"
} You owe the Oracle a set of wedding vows applicable to people who
} met and fell in love online.
