Trash the Dress (Rock the Frock)

My wedding dress is hanging awkwardly in my bedroom in my apartment. It’s in the protective bag, so it’s a huge puffy pillow just dangling off of a shelving unit. I couldn’t possible keep it in my apartment. When I wake up in the middle of the night I actually forget what it is and it just looks like a white glowy person in the corner of the room. I’m literally being haunted by my wedding....more

Marriage: What Are We Waiting For?

I was talking with my grandparents last night, and we were discussing how it seems the current trend is to get married at much older ages than back in their time.  They were saying that men need to step up to the plate and stop waiting for the perfect time to get married because that “perfect” time will never come.  There are always going to be money constraints, there are always going to be problems at your job, there are always going to be issues with your family—so if you are waiting for those things to go away or get better, you will be waiting for a while....more

Allergic to the Idea of a Wedding.

Well, it's official. I'm the last gypsy slut standing in my group of 4 BFF's/partners in crime. And I'm not complaining. I think it's very appropriate it 'ended up' this way. I am the one that could TOTALLY handle NEVER having a wedding EVER. I like attending them but I know I would HATE having one.  I would hatehatehate the whole entire day and this is not exaggeration by any stretch either. Dress? EW. Booze YAY. High heels? EWW. Making small talk with over a hundred people? EW. Attention on me- EW....more

How marriage changes with a new baby.

When you're pregnant for the first time, everyone gives you the side-eye and says, "This baby is going to change your life and your marriage forever. FOREVER." In cynical tones, they describe the horrors of nighttime feedings, the distance you feel from you spouse, the way this child is going to be your entire world, and how things will never, ever be the same. And they're right...in some ways. But what I really wish is that the cynical tones and horror stories would stop. It's almost as though society sets up us for failure in our marriages after a child is born....more
