"When a man gets married, it's the craziest thing in his life." For as many times as I have looked at this phrase, I can't seem to get my head around this last part. I understand each word but it just doesn't seem to come together for me. "...se le va..."?

Hola, I'm thinking it's a passive voice construction but I'm by no means certain. I'm hoping Cristian answers this and the "Deberíamos esperar" post. Saludos, Ricardo

Hmmm: se le va - not se la va? The problem I am having with this sentence is that is is using two indirect object pronouns. I thought the rule is <indirect> <direct> verb. I wonder if the last part should be "se la va la locura de su vida".
