So, tomorrow I'm getting married, and for some odd reason after 10 years on the Orange Mane I acctually like reading the opinions of some of the same delusioned fanatics who have the free time to waist 10 years of their lives discussing the Broncos. With that being said, Orange Mane give me your marriage wisdom!

"Yes, dear" solves a lot of problems, even if you don't really mean it...

Remember tomorrow, it is ALL about her. So suck it up, laugh when things aren't funny, smile when your feet hurt, hug your in laws and don't do anything embarrassing.

Oh, and congratulations.

At the wedding dinner don't ask her to get up and make you a sandwich.



That can wait till the day after.

Get used to saying "I wasn't interested tonight either" as a defense mechanism so you at least present the illusion you had something to do with her decision.

Congratulations!

Nothing spawns jokes and good nature ribbing like a man getting married......a good book to give her is Dr. Laura Schlesinger's "The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands" but only after you read it yourself to make sure you're not upsetting her...


My advice is -

[] Nothing before her. Not your stupid friends, not your family, not your job, not your kids....nothing before her.

[] Do not make a major purchase or decision without the both of you being in total agreement on it.....because it will just cause the other to feel resentful.

[] Live below your means and save your money for a rainy day.....the future is unknown and if you're prepared for it, you can weather the storm financially. Plan for your future because you have no clue what it holds.

[] When it comes to kids, make sure you and her are on the same page about raising them, and disciplining them, and try to never let the kids see or hear you argue.

[] Enjoy your life with the love of your life, and always let her know how much you love her and show her tons of affection like holding her hand,going to bed at the same time as much as possible, keeping yourself between her and oncoming traffic, prove to her that chivalry isn't dead as far as you're concerned. People should know that the two of you are in love when they see you interact with each other.

And you'll earn bonus points if you play this song for her....or better yet, sing it to her. good luck!

I think i gave this advice in a previous thread about marriage, but here goes:

Does a marathon runner use up all his energy in the first mile? No. Remember, till death.

This is on point. I will add that if you're in an argument and you know you're wrong, admit it by saying so. Tell her you're sorry and you love her. Doing this will make things smooth over a lot quicker. Randomly buying her flowers and other things reassures her you're not just thinking about yourself as well.

This is fantastic gentlemen, I really appreciate your support, and advice. We've already been through some rough re-planning after our plans for a beautiful garden wedding were dashed by a tropical storm, so it's on to plan B!

I loled today when my Father was showing us a slide show filled with pictures of the two of us through the years, and in one of my HS Graduation photos I was wearing a DJ Williams 52 Jersey.

Shouldn't you be on a drugged/liquored up hooker/stripper binge that ends with the grooms men dragging you in and propping you up for the ceremony?

This is a mistake. Whatever you do tonight is going to dictate the rest of the marriage. I'd say sandwiches and anal are in tall order.


Oh and Congrats!

Also, you might want to consider getting so drunk that you break the hotel TV and piss in the bed. I'm not saying that has necessarily been the secret to my marriage's success, I'm just saying that it can't be ruled out.

This marriage is DOOMED unless you registered for a copy of "Failure is Not an Option" I don't know how many times I have had to apply life lesson's from Gene's opus to save the day.

I have repeatedly used a plastic bag, duct tape, a sock, a square air filter, used checklist, and a round car air filter to fashion mothers day and anniversary presents in a pinch.

Plus now all I have to do is ask if we are a "Go" or "No Go" for sex. It kinda backfires because when we are a go she uses a 10 second count down, if you know what I mean...
