that's reassuring :D

Any tips ?

I've got a tip that's served me well over my 7 years of marriage: Tell her what she wants to hear and then do what you want to do anyway. Most likely she'll never notice.

Until I learned that about 5 years ago things were a little rough. I even went as far to tell her that's what I was doing and she admitted that it was true.

Amen to that!!!!!

And you both need to make sure you're hearing what the other person is saying. If there is ANY doubt -- ASK.

As much as I hate to admit it....it's true that men can say one thing and women can hear something totally different. Most females not only listen to the words but the TONE in which the words are spoken. That is where the misunderstandings occur. And this goes for any relationship, not just marriage.

Just say Okay (or whatever the French equivalent is) to whatever it is she says and go on about your day. Nothing to it :wink:

Remember to have at minimum, two flasks on your person filled with GOOD single malt scotch ;)

Good advice. I can't believe how nervous I got about 10 minutes before my cue. Thankfully, my best man and I both had flasks (but bourbon, not scotch), and one pretty big hit got my head screwed on straight again.

Still have the flask, too ...

Listen to the man, Lotek; he doesn't mess around with his liquor.

I was in a wedding where we all had flasks. I'm a little surprised the bride didn't get pissy about it.

Alright, fine. Skirts

I'm sure she'll be fine with it as long as all of you wear your underoos and don't have your dead, ill-looking chickens hanging out. :lol:

She didn't need to as you all were getting pissed ;)

But the flasks are a good idea, I can picture that vid of the groom passing out before saying his piece and I'd fucking hate to do that lol

I'm Irish should I wear a sk... kilt Rob ?

I'll bathe her but i don't think I'll bring her to anyone but me :)

thanks for all your kind words all of you(yes even you, youknowwho lol)

your advice is duly noted, I'll try to get her to come here but she's not English and might be a bit shy to face the banter here ;)

she has to go to Freak first, leader's right ...

then you & I either have to fight it out or drag-race worms to the palmeries & back ...

and since you're a motherfucking bear, and my insurance won't cover another worm-riding
related back injury, I'll just have to bow out gracefully and get in line ...
