Are you still going to keep your truck?

I agree with the waiting thing, guess I just never really thought about the reason for it tho, this is all assuming hes not getting married becasue hes already knocked her up.
I dont think most dads really "get" parenthood until they can teach 'em how to catch a ball or ride a bike. I think most moms love the helpless phase. I didn't mind it so much, but everything changed for me once we could start building relationships around doing things together.

That said the wife still needs to come first. I tell my kids that every time we take a night off for a date. Eventually they might get that I'm serious.

2 years would be good. I guess it depends on the premarriage situation. If you already shacked up for awhile then a year might be fine. Maybe he mentioned that already. But if you don't already live together you'll want at least a couple years to have fun and sort out all those inevitable territorial pissings that come with living in the same breathe-zone with someone every day.

Just remember that once the kids come you go from first priority to 3rd. First are kids, next whatever else she decides is a priority (not you). At 10 at night when she is exhausted and falling asleep on the couch, that's your quality time.

hint for future husbands: hire a good photographer. we had a budget wedding and got a downright awful photographer who literally just point and clicked all day, recommended by our DJ. now we dont even have enough quality photos to make a real "wedding book" thing.

Prepare yourself to spend half your life waiting on her to get ready to go to stupid ass parties and get togethers that you don't want to go to.

What am I doing right now? Yep. After cutting my fishing day short for her I'm now waiting on her to go to some kids 8th grade graduation party. I've been ready for 2 hours. It's an hour away and were still at the house. Would love to go to Blackhawk, but nope. I'm married. And this is my life now.

True story: Me and Mrs Bean wanted to do things a little differently and didn't want people to get us anything, so we invited family and friends over to my house for an "NFL playoff party". Nobody knew about the wedding. At halftime of the early game, we introduced the JP, had the ceremony right there in the house and were done with the formalities in no time.

First thing one of my uncles said to me was: "That was the best wedding I've ever been to. We didn't miss a single snap of the game." Brought a tear to my eye.

Cost me less than a grand and is easily the best and most memorable wedding story of anyone I know.

When it comes to picking a spouse, my only advice is to pick "low maintenance".

My brother who is divorced will always say after speaking to his Ex "god she is such a b****" and I always remind him "Well, she was a b**** before you got married too"

Lesson? Don't marry a b****!

Hope it went well, bud. Congrats on your new (but really continued) life together.

Let me know if he uses the Shakespeare lend me your ears line in his post Julius Augustus work.

Would be super corny but so tempting to use.

I have the right Augustus, right? I feel like I might be wrong.

Get drunk and hit on the bridemaids. That will tell you if she is a good sport or not.

Marriage is work, damn hard work. A few of my takes:

1. No, you are not marrying her family, but actually you are. I hope you at least like them.

2. Kids WILL change everything. They are the greatest thing that will happen in your marriage and the greatest test it will ever face. With young kids at home consider yourself under house arrest. Is your wife your ideal cell mate?

3. Marriage doesn't change sexual frequency, children do. Make sure you still find time for each other.

4. Don't feel bad for checking out other women, just be coy about doing it in front of her.

5. Get freaky. She's your wife, the supposedly last lover you'll ever have, don't be afraid to experiment often. She should be open to this.

6. Don't give up porn, but also realize it's bullsh*t. Porn is to sex what a Hooter's waitress is to women in general.

7. Get her to watch porn with you - then you know you have a keeper.

Oh, one more thing - when the time comes, man up and get a vasectomy. Seriously, best thing I ever did for my sex life. The pill messes with their hormones like you wouldn't believe. A few months after my surgery my sex life shot to the moon. It might have saved my whole marriage actually.

Marriage is about both parties swallowing their pride at times for the greater good of the "team". It has to be a mutual give and take in sacrifices. You have to communicate and not let a tiny leak in the damn become a gusher. Those leaky holes are usually silly and can be fixed with a sincere apology and discussion followed by an enjoyable round of another type of hole filling..... Get creative in this last part!
