Worf and Jadzia were married in a ceremony where Worf played the part of
this god-killer guy.  Apparently, he's important enough to base a ceremony
around.  Obviously, the metaphor is a lot deeper that we first thought, with
the killer's eternal punishment of ferrying the damned souls around being
analogous to the torture of married life to come.

Yeah, pretty glorious, until the NAGGING starts!
