    I stand corrected. That's still a lot. It's almost like... the institution of marriage is unnatural or something.

    We wanted a year without being tied down to the phrase "you guys are married you can't do x, y, z..." and that sort of ****....and it was the best first year of marriage I've ever experienced.....

    Flip a coin at every wedding and see how it plays out. I was best man in a wedding I knew that if there was one that wasn’t going to work, it’d be that one. Sadly, I was right.

    Regarding the institution, I think many people don’t realize it’s supposed to be something that celebrates your relationship, not something that fixes one. I’m at a point now when at a wedding I say “congratulations” to those who I think they will work and “good luck in your relationship” for those I don’t. So far, I have not been wrong.

    Nice one pack. Why you don't fall asleep at a party, when everyone there has a fresh Sharpy.

    Well I have the answer, but it wouldn't be very popular.
