My good friends son got married yesterday.. Very nice wedding outside along the McKenzie River...
First wedding I have been to in probably 15 years... I just couldn't get over how easy ( 20 minutes) it is to get married and how LONG it takes to get divorced... I asked the Groom if he got my note in the RSVP note.. He laughed and said it is on the front of the Fridge.. SHE gave me a dirty look... It is my business card with this on the back: " Todd call me, you don't have to do this".... I am loved

I should say there were quite a few unmarried couples there.. The women were doing there best to keep me away from there guys. Lets just say I talk a good talk about NOT getting married....

The groom and two of his ushers cried... Geesh, no wonder America is going to hel with weak $uck men like this.......

Another "roll of the dice" I called it.. Over 50% divorce rate in the US.. Pretty crummy odds if you ask me.....

But love is a powerful thing. I believe alot of young people get married to fast and it doesn't always work out, but I dated my wife for 4 yrs, and lived with her for a 1 1/2 yrs before we said our I do's! We both know what we were getting, but that makes me wonder why she went through with it :confused: ?

Rick,

Was it a wedding or a funeral? :D That's classic the buisness card. That certainly suits you well! You're right we do have a high divorce rate. It's a crap shoot...

The biggest problem is that people can change so much so fast. One thing goes wrong and their both looking for an East Texas Skier to give some money to!

See I just rushed into it. I could be staying at home with your job and she could be working, if I would have followed your example! Redneck screw up! I should have been thinking instead of hunting something :confused: !

Doug can rest. I think it would take nearly a year for anyone to catch that machine.:worthy: That’s if he stopped posting.:o

The only way Doug will stop posting, is for us to send him more clients!!!

The bride must not have known him or maybe the groom had him throw the bachelor party?

Its like buying back that old car you got rid of.. You only think about the "good times" you had in it.. Then when its back, you remember all the squeaks, leaks, doesn't run right, the "Rusty patch" on the left fender... ah yes, we men can be fools......

LOL! Just thinking about Vince Vaughn in Old School.

"Do I look like a happy guy to you, Frank. Look at her. 'Hi, Sweetheart.' Always watching, judging. 'Look at the baby! Look at the Baby.'"

And he got her a new $10,000 ring for every one! How much could she have change in the few months they were apart all those times?

Funny thread, for me, dated/lived together ~2 years and married 17.

Doug, you hit it, I think Old School poked at so many marriage problems. Frank's funny line "we're going streaking" love that scene and Frank the tank is classic male behavior. Oh yeah busy day, going to Lowes, Bed Bath and Beyond, then he hits the beer bong, once, twice.....Frank the tank is back!

Great Thread. I suspect no one has ever accused Rick of having too much tact when the subject is 'marriage' :D

Me: Dated for 1 month (during this period of time, she learned to waterski and drive the boat - I did have my priorities); engaged for 11 months(!); (never lived together prior to marriage); married 27 years and counting...

yeah, staying married takes some effort, (not all of it pleasant, either - just ask my wife:o:D ) but from what I've seen and experienced so far, it's far better to invest in that effort than expend even more on a divorce.. We talk a lot, on some subjects we just plain "agree to disagree", and go from there.

Neil , the biggest problem is if ONE decides then BOTH have to abide.... I have heard lots of people make then same comment as above not realizing they will have NOTHING TO SAY about it if the other half wants to divorce in a NO FAULT legal climate.....

Andre', let me rewrite this for you..

Dated for 2 years, currently living together for 4. ( better check the local laws on "common law marriage" ( I am sure she has) NOT planning on getting married to anyone.. What Rick says doesn't matter.....
