Common-law marriage. It consists of two respected friends or relatives holding the ends of a broom about 4 inches from the ground. The happy couple jump together while holding hands. Some traditions are - if the broom is held knee-high, maybe you should re-consider because it'll be a difficult or an impossible jump. If you jump in unison, it's good luck and means much happiness. You'll always have two people praying for you two. It's free. Ya might be intoxicated when your Partner suggests it. Divorce is free and easy....It's a Black thing. An old slave tradition among the gullah-geechee islands in coastal Georgia and South Carolina.
#1 "My Lady's so crazy, we had to jump a mop because the broom was yellow. See, she hates yellow..."
#2 "Her Auntee and her Daughter held the broom like one inch from the floor. We landed in step and that was eight yrs. ago."
