Brittney Griner and Glory Johnson got married over the weekend, becoming the rare couple from one professional sports league. Griner took to social media to share the news and a photo (above). It was her first social-media post since she and Johnson were arrested for alleged domestic violence in April.

On Instagram she emoted about the wedding:

I don't care if the the world was ending at this moment! Nothing could of kept me from my wife I think I cried the whole day until I saw her walking down that isle. Then in a instant I was calm and full of love and all the tears turned into huge smiles and a joy that no one can explain unless you have found and married your soulmate. I love you so much my beautiful Wife @missvol25

On Twitter Griner quoted Ernest Hemingway in an obvious response to the arrest that shook the WNBA three weeks earlier:

"The world breaks everyone, and afterward, many are strong at the broken places."

The WNBA has not yet taken any action against the players after their arrest. Whatever that might be, it looks like the couple will be facing it together as newlyweds. We wish them the best of luck and a long marriage.
