Tips for Marying Couples, but Mostly Men. (Wedding Survival Guide for Men (and Women))

Most people think that marriage is mostly for women. That’s not true. There are many feelings men go through, at least those marrying for the right reason. There are many pitfalls for them because they haven’t thought and planned it out the way women have. So I’d like to go through those here for you. This is for women and men, but mostly for men.

  1. She had it planned out, doesn’t mean you don’t count.

    It’s true, she knows what everything would look like for a long time. Every since she was a little girl, she planned this and so she knows how the man will look as well as his groomsmen, how she will look, how centerpieces will look and where the wedding will take place. The man however will focus on tradition. He may refuse a taco truck because he has his family to think. This is because the amount that the future wife knows how the wedding will be, the same amount his mother knows how the wedding will be, and that picture NEVER LOOKS THE SAME.

    The two pictures will clash and he will be stuck in the middle. So it will be helpful for them both for him to show that there are things that are important to him early so that  she knows that some things are important for him too. However, over all, the job of the man is to either pay for her idea, or do his best to create her idea. This means that he will have to give up most of the control on most things, because he really has no idea what’s happening. Instead, his job will be to focus on the important things, like keeping things on schedule and on budget (the man will also have to realize that he will fail at both) as this is a loosing war and the man simply needs to win the important battles that will keep a war from happening between his mother and his future wife.
