Ahhhhh. The smell of love in the air makes one thinks of cupid proudly sitting back congratulating himself on another job well done. Weddings are a time of hope and the promise of forever so we dress up, eat and listen to heartfelt speeches about how those two individuals have now become one, united in their commitment to each other. Weddings are a joyous celebration but some people get carried away in their youthful exuberance and as such the bride or the groom may make a metal note not to invite them anywhere again because their behaviour sucked. In order to prevent getting kicked out of the wedding for playing the fool, let us explore some simple etiquette rules that we should all know but it does not hurt to have a gentle reminder.
Settling into married life is not without its fair share of surprises, some may even catch you completely off guard as the movies you watched never showed just how much of a slob Prince Charming really is or that the perfect girl next door cannot boil water to save her life.
It may be 2020 but some people still cannot reconcile themselves to the notion that marriage does not mean that one gives up their right to be independence. Being married or in a relationship does not mean that you have to lose yourself or your sense of identity. But try to explain this to some women.
They are all under thirty and all married. Two are Christians and one claims to be a reformed player who hung up his shoes when he found the right woman. All of these men are in relationships that are less than four years and admit that while they are generally happy, they do sometimes miss the excitement of ‘doing road’. They are nowhere near the seven year itch however being this young one wonders if they were actually prepared for the monotony of domesticity; if being married is all that it promised to be and if in hindsight they felt they should have waited a few more years before settling down.
