I'm jealous your parents meeting went so well. M and I have been "discussing" his father's monetary involvement for some time. Our big day is planned for next July. Good luck with the rest of planning!
Your site is brilliant!!! You need to check out a hilarious book called (I think) the NearlyWed's Guide to Getting MArried.. or something like that. small white book, I'll check the title tonight.. absolutely hilarious and much like your blog. My groom was very amused by the posts I read to him so far. Particularly brilliant: The comparison between you and a Board of Directors at a corporation, and the "Days since last argument"... I'm sitting in corporate America with a Days since last recordable injury sign out my window.. I need one for my dor.. "Day since I last cried over wedding planning." Hilarious.. I really might do that. And the Beyonce word.. That was great. Keep up the awesome blog. Our wedding is March.. and it's as though the calendar is a time bomb. I can't wait until I can blissfully have my evenings back to I don't know. play cards or something. But not plan. Good luck to you and 'L" I will definitely be reading and rooting for you. Although good luck on keeping up the posts at the two month mark.. I hope you do.. and yet I laugh at the naiive optimism. You have some great reminders about what this is all about and bring a fresh perspective to the women-dominated scene.
"S" a bride with 14 month engagement, a meticulous sometimes irrational mother, analytical groom, and a 250 person wedding to plan.
I am not controlling!! I was only joking about the "MY WAY" of course it is YOUR WAY!!!!!
Well, I finally have a moment to read this awesome blog and see what I have been missing all these months!! Anyway, I have no comment about the "meeting of the parents" except to say I wouldn't have expected anything different!! I will keep reading now!
I want to start a business selling PUTS on marriages, I would create a 1, 2 and 5 and 10 year PUTS, the longer the maturity the higher the premium.
In case you dont know what a PUT is here is the definition Options are financial instruments which can be bought or sold similar to the way stocks are bought and sold. There are two option types.... Calls and Puts.
Options are contracts between two individuals with opposing views on how the underlying MARRIAGE will perform. The two individuals represented in an option contract are the option writer (seller) and the option investor (buyer). The option writer is an owner of MARRIAGE, and is empowered to write option contracts against the marriage position. The option writer can sell the contracts to option investors at any time.
