PETER SAGAL, HOST:

Panel, time for you to answer some questions about this week's news. Janelle, a report out this week says more women in their 30s are getting married, but in an unconventional way. They are marrying whom?

JANELLE JAMES: They're - oh, God, if it's their pets I'm going to kill myself.

SAGAL: Not their pets.

(LAUGHTER)

JAMES: OK. (Laughter) They're marrying - it's not their best friend...

SAGAL: It's not their best friend.

JAMES: It's - women?

SAGAL: Well, these women are definitely marrying a woman.

JAMES: I mean, that's for college, but let's see...

(LAUGHTER)

JAMES: ...Themselves?

SAGAL: Yes, they are marrying themselves.

JAMES: Oh, my God.

(SOUNDBITE OF BELL, LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: It's a new trend. It's called sologamy.

JAMES: Oh, my God.

TOM BODETT: Oh, my God.

SAGAL: And while that may sound like a wet lunch meat, it's...

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: It's the newest thing in marriage. It's sort of spinster meets hipster.

FAITH SALIE: Ew.

JAMES: Oh, we deserve everything that's coming at us.

SAGAL: Yeah.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: I should say that men don't do this because men know who they'd be marrying.

(LAUGHTER)

JAMES: Hilarious.

SALIE: Wow. I mean, I guess your wedding night would be uncomplicated.

JAMES: Right?

SAGAL: Yeah. Well, what happens, of course, there's a letdown...

SALIE: And satisfying.

JAMES: Yeah, right.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: They start out, they're very happy. It's exciting. It's their wedding day. But the honeymoon's over, you know, you get to the suite and you're like, oh, you again.

(LAUGHTER)

BODETT: It's almost as if I know what you're thinking.

SAGAL: Yeah.

SALIE: You're so predictable.

(LAUGHTER, SOUNDBITE OF ROBYN SONG, "DANCING ON MY OWN")
