    Default Hey! I am getting married on the 23rd.

    Howdy!

    I am getting married in about 14 hours to the most amazing woman in the world.

    So could my extended family stop fighting and just enjoy the moment with me? After 1400 central commence normal crabbing, whining, bitching, ****ing and moaning, insulting and generally just being normal for this place!

    I have to say she is an amazing woman and the fact that she loves me is even more amazing. She puts up with my nonsense and weird sense of humor and heck even finds me attractive. I have to snatch this one up before she figures me out!!

    Thanks Brothers,

    Sleep? Not a chance I m working a 24 today. Then married tomorrow, Celebrating Christmas on the 24th and then back here on Christmas Day. Honeymoon in February when I have some vacation.

    Funny you mention the happy thread. That is EXACTLY why I posted this. Hoping to stop the squabbling for a few minutes at least.

    Thanks for the well wishes.

    Marriage shouldn't scare you. Heck this is my second time around and I am not nervous in the least. You just have to believe if you expect it to work.

    Uh, I hate to start the bitching and moaning, but we have a problem. I will talk with her in a few minutes, because that is bigamy. I am ALREADY married to the most amazing woman in the world, she can't marry you too!

    Congratulations.

    Now, does anyone want my ex?

    Congrats!! I just got married in May to the woman I should have married my first go-around. She's the best thing that's ever happened to me, I hope that you all are as happy in your marriage as we are in ours.

    Portage, Wisconsin. See you at 1300 hours. (Be careful she has a gun and she knows how to use it!!)

    Thanks. I have no nervousness like I did the first time around. Honestly I can't wait!!

    Thank you Sheri. We are very happy together. We share so many interests, dreams and goals. Funny thing is we can do absolutely nothing together and have a great time doing it. Or we can be remodeling our house and having a great time. It's all about being partners.

    Remember a few rules if you are dead set on selling your soul!

    1) If she says IF YOU LOVE ME , you just lost that fight. don't bother trying!
    2) If she says her back is suddenly hurting or she's hot. Buy MIDOL stat!
    3) When she says I DO, she really means I DON'T DO THAT ANYMORE!
    4) Hide ALL sharp objects and candy canes because they can be fashioned into shanks. I should know! * ducks in fear*
    5) If she asks you DO I LOOK LIKE I'VE PUT ON WEIGHT or DO I LOOK FAT IN THESE JEANS? Just pack a bag for a sleep over at your buddies house for a few days. It'll save the trouble for you of being called a liar!

    And most importantly!!!!!

    You have a penis ( I assume ) so you automatically wrong about EVERYTHING! Don't try to argue this point with her. You'll end up losing that fight!

    And good luck to you both!
