Bob LeChevalier and Nora Tansky were married October 23, 1987. Their ceremony made use of vows written in a language Bob later described as a "30%/70% Lojban/Loglan hybrid". The vows were published in issue #4 of "ju'i lobypli" in February, 1988, alongside translations of the vows into the contemporary form of Lojban/Loglan-88 as well as English.
