Visual Description:  A happy couple, preparing to join in wedlock.

FLECT  =  CLEFT,  CEMIN  =  MINCE,  INJOUR  =  JUNIOR,  ORMOAN  =  MAROON   —   Giving us:  ETINUORAN

Clue/Question:  What it costs to get hitched.

Answer:  THE UNION RATE

(VERY nice word play, here today!  I bet this one gave a lot of you guys fits!  I had some trouble with “junior”.  A little less with “maroon”.  I remember my dad having a maroon car.  Don’t ask me the make/model.  Anyway.  Superior scrambling of the answer letters.  It took some thought to get today’s answer.  Any time there are more vowels than consonants I get a little thrown.  I was looking at the word *rite* for a while.  Then I went to “rate”, and then “union” fell into place . . . and made sense!  Great way to close out the week, and welcome the Labor Day weekend!  Enjoy it, and be safe, people.  Be good, do good!)   —   YUR
