Say Ash and May eloped in secret, how do you think their friends and family will react?
Hmm, I could definitely see Norman and Max going into over-protective father/brother mode and giving Ash a hard time as soon as they found out he and May got secretly married, haha! I'm sure everyone else (Delia, Caroline, Brock, Dawn, Misty, etc.) would be shocked, too, but I think eventually they would all be happy and excited that Ash and May were married. Of course, I think they would request Ash and May hold a ceremony they could participate in as well :)
To piggy back off of this topic...
If Ash and May were to elope, do you think there's any special location they would choose to elope to? Also, is there anyone special they would ask to marry them?
