Very good thread. I've been thinking about this alot lately with all the crazy wedding planning going on [less than five months]. I think the problem with the wedding industry today and the idea of a wedding is that it's about a party -- flowers, food, music, etc. -- and people rarely think about what happens after that. The most serious discussions my fiance and I have had have not been about flowers or food. The serious discussions are about where we plan to live, what kind of car we could afford, what kind of family we want, what about finances. The problem with today's society is that you spend more time thinking about the wedding than the marriage. "What do you mean forever? I just wanted a party!"
I completely agree. That is a problem, there's the big day, but after that, what to have left? I think the marriage should be even more exciting than the wedding. I think of marriage as the most serious commitment two people can make, and it should be planned with that in mind.

Marriage is being commited to a person -- to have your needs become theirs and their needs become yours. To have fun, to make sacrifices and anything else you make your marriage to be what you and your partner want it to be.
