I picked the girl up from school, fed her, and put her down for her nap. I decided to attempt to watch Dr. Phil, since I was alone. Did anyone else watch this show? OMG! I wanted to smack each woman on it.
If you missed it (you didn't miss much), he was talking to couples who had weddings go awry. Not the type one might see on America's Funniest Videos, but one's where the disaster continued into the marriage.
Now, as you know, I've never been a girl who dreamt of her wedding day. I never dwelled on wanting that 'perfect day'. Why? Because I've always known that marriage is not about the wedding day (thanks Mom and Dad). I'm more for a quickie JP (justice of the peace) ceremony and spend all the money on the reception type of chickie :)
People (more specifically, women) who believe that if their wedding day doesn't go perfectly, their entire marriage will be doomed ~ should not ever get married. It is totally unrealistic to expect everything to go as planned. If it does-great! I'm just saying do not expect it.
As a matter of fact, I would assume everything would get screwed up just to try to prepare myself mentally for when it actually does. My life philosophy is 'Expect the worst and hope for the best.' I doubt my wedding day would be reason to change that.
This one lady, who I wanted to jump through the screen and choke for a few minutes, was whining because it rained on her wedding day. So now, when she and her husband disagree on what movie to see--the lady is like "Well, lets just get a divorce then!" Um.... hello? Be glad I'm not your man :) I'd be wishing you luck that the door didn't smack your ass on the way out..... then again..... :) The whiny ass woman- child who cried divorce when she doesn't get her way... boo F'in hoo.
Then, the woman who was pissed because her husband got temporary amnesia! Come on.... Like he could help it. Her father punched her husband at the reception (it was supposedly a friendly 'welcome to marriage, son-in-law, kind of hit on the jaw). The hubby fell backwards and ended up in the hospital.
The couple missed their honeymoon and their wedding night together. The woman was saying that their whole marriage is sour because they missed their consummation that night. Well.... um.... I bet its a safe guess to say they had already slept together before they got married... so what's the big deal?! Why would sex on your wedding night change a marriage? I so don't get it.
Isn't it possible that these women's expectations got the better of them? I mean, no one really believes that if their wedding is not perfect-it can really affect the marriage.... do they? Please tell me no.
Unbelievable~shaking my head.......
