Wedding Tip: Eat Together


Eat together at the dinner table. Raise your hand if you regularly eat your meals in front of the television. (We're guilty of that too!) Before TV, having dinner together was a main event, not an afterthought. In that spirit, the next time you're both home for the evening and have a few minutes to spare, try eating from real plates at the dinner table (even if the main course is takeout pizza!) and having a conversation with your guy, all while the TV is switched off. You might be surprised by how much you end up connecting.

Wedding Tips: Remote Control


"Because my husband is such a remote-control freak, my mom suggested that we have 'my turn' TV nights. That means three nights a week I get to hold the remote and watch whatever I want, and on the other nights it's his turn to hold the remote and watch whatever he wants. Now when he starts flipping through the channels, it doesn't get on my nerves like it used to." —Angela Clayton,

Supplementary: Get Sky Plus or use I-Player or any device allowing you to save and record your desired programs for later viewing. Watch these on 'your' days, while not losing what you would otherwise miss on the other days.

Wedding Tip: Encourage your partner's pursuits


Back then, there was a clear delineation: Men went to work to bring home the bacon, and women stayed home. That's (thankfully) no longer the case, but there's something quaint about trusting in your guy so much that you're confident he has the skills to pay the bills. Translation: Encourage your guy in every area of life: his business, his hobbies...even his fitness goals. Because no matter who's going out and winning the bread (and these days you both probably are), there's no better feeling than having a champion in your corner when you get home. And he should do the same for you.

Wedding Tips: The truth


Strike an average between what a woman thinks of her husband a month before she marries him and what she thinks of him a year afterward, and you will have the truth about him.  ~H.L. Mencken, A Book of Burlesques, 1916

Wedding Tips: Home Fires


To keep the fire burning brightly there's one easy rule:  Keep the two logs together, near enough to keep each other warm and far enough apart - about a finger's breadth - for breathing room.  Good fire, good marriage, same rule.  ~Marnie Reed Crowell

Wedding Tips: One week itch?


In every marriage more than a week old, there are grounds for divorce.  The trick is to find, and continue to find, grounds for marriage.  ~Robert Anderson, Solitaire & Double Solitaire

Wedding Tips: Falling in Love


A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.  ~Mignon McLaughlin, The Second Neurotic's Notebook, 1966

Wedding Tips: Commitment


In a time when nothing is more certain than change, the commitment of two people to one another has become difficult and rare.  Yet, by its scarcity, the beauty and value of this exchange have only been enhanced.  ~Robert Sexton

Wedding Tips: Tied in


One advantage of marriage is that, when you fall out of love with him or he falls out of love with you, it keeps you together until you fall in again.  ~Judith Viorst
