Funny. First I read it as a teenage girl: "The marriage can SO not continue!" then it became a posh Englishman: "The marriage cannot continue so."

"Het huwelijk" means both "wedding" and "marriage". How am I supposed to know which word is required in the given sentence? Each seems quite appropriate.

I believe that bruiloft is generally used to signify a wedding

In this context, "marriage" seems much more likely.

Where does the 'like this' come from? Is it the 'zo' in the sentence?

The audio for "doorgaan" seems a bit skewed. I am reporting it.
