I can’t count how many times I have heard brides-to-be say “I’ve been dreaming of this day since I was a little girl!” It always makes me wonder what kind of sad childhood they had where instead of playing , they were thinking about marriage. Those are the same little girls who grow up to form the word bride with Godzilla. Spoiled brats who feel such a sense of entitlement they think the universe revolves around them. Call me completely normal, but I believe that marriage is not about the “show” or the dress or the overly priced floral arrangements. It’s about the person who in ten years (even when you divorce in three), you are always going to remember being there. Ask any wife whose been married for 30 years what kind of table linens she had at her wedding and she’ll tell you she has no clue. Not because she’s suffering from Alzheimer’s but because it is not significant. Yes, everyone gets overwhelmed with planning. I know it doesn’t help when you have a super neurotic or particularly bitchy personality but if you can’t grasp the idea that maybe it doesn’t make that much of a difference in the long run, then you probably are more cut out for reality TV than marriage.
