<p>Should we be happy for them?</p> <p><a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PESPT0000086232" title="Ray Rice" href="/topic/sports/football/ray-rice-PESPT0000086232-topic.html">Ray Rice</a> and the former Janay Palmer, his longtime girlfriend and mother of his two-year-old daughter, celebrated their marriage last week at the <a href="http://instagram.com/p/p6k6dNNrAm/?modal=true">Four Seasons Baltimore</a> in front of friends, including fellow Ravens <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PESPT000009816" title="Torrey Smith" href="/topic/sports/football/torrey-smith-PESPT000009816-topic.html">Torrey Smith</a> and <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PESPT0013148" title="Lardarius Webb" href="/topic/sports/football/lardarius-webb-PESPT0013148-topic.html">Lardarius Webb</a>.&nbsp;</p> <p>Rice and Palmer, you may recall, were married in a private ceremony in March, a day after he was indicted on third-degree assault charges for allegedly knocking her unconscious.&nbsp;</p> <p>The couple remains in family counseling under a plea deal that Rice struck with prosecutors in May. &nbsp;The running back was accepted into a program for first-time offenders that allowed him to avoid a trial. &nbsp;Rice must avoid getting in trouble for the next year, under the terms of the deal.&nbsp;</p> <p>Many expect that Rice will be suspended from the team over the incident, which occurred Feb. 15 in an Atlantic City casino. &nbsp;The Ravens are still waiting on a ruling on Rice's discipline from the NFL.&nbsp;</p> <p>But, enough about all that. Let's talk about the reception.&nbsp;</p> <p>According to the team's web site, Mr. and Mrs. Rice celebrated their vows with current and former Ravens on Friday. &nbsp;He wore a gray tuxedo; she, a shimmering, form-fitting gown. Their 2-year-old daughter, Rayven, danced to Pharrell's "Happy" at the reception.&nbsp;</p> <p>More details about the celebration were not immediately available. &nbsp;</p> <p>Several current and former Ravens posted pictures of the event on Instagram.&nbsp;</p> <p>"<span>Wedding day flow!!
