DC Marriage Week is a fandom appreciation activity event focused on canon and fanon marriages in the DC Universe. It was hosted by stardustkr7, speedthruthenight, and justplainsomething.

History

The event was organized as a reaction to DC's "anti marriage" policy after the Batwoman controversy became public.

In light of DC’s recent fuckery and newfangled policy of not allowing characters to get hitched, we’re gonna throw our own fandom wide wedding, Tumblr style.
