    People do stupid things when drunk, so that is what happened to Ross and Rachel.

    Fiction is very different from real life.

    By 'others' I assume you mean the other Friends aka Monica, Chandler, Phoebe and Joey. None of them were aware that they were going to get married since they spent most of the evening alone in their hotel room getting drunk. The first time they were aware they were getting married is when they received a phone call from them and by the time Phoebe and Joey arrived at the Chapel, they had already got married. Monica and Chandler didn't know anything about the marriage until the second Rachel and Ross came out of the Chapel.

    If by 'others' you mean the people that officiated the wedding, there's no law against drunk people getting married. In fact, as far fetched as Rachel and Ross' marriage seems, it DOES happen. Vegas is a place where getting married is readily available, throw in some alcohol and the general "throw caution to the wind" and "YOLO" attitude that most people adopt when in Vegas, and drunken people getting married on a whim is more common than you'd think.

    Because it made for better TV. It made it funny that they got married while drunk.People make dumb mistakes when they are drunk.

    And it's an ongoing joke that Ross has been married and divorced several times

    Because when they write a script they dont care how ridiculous they are. That's why they put laugh tracks in programs, people wouldn't know what's funny unless they tell them. I refuse to watch television.
