My son Jack wonders why girls are obsessed with weddings. I think this is an interesting question coming from a young man. I see girls pinning wedding ideas on Pinterest who don't even have boyfriends. Why is this? We as a society bombard young girls with this "fantasy" from almost the day they are born. We call them princesses, buy them Barbie wedding dresses, and talk about their Prince Char...
mings. I am here to tell you girls that a wedding is just one day, but a marriage is your life. Speaking from experience, my first wedding was beautiful and perfect.....it's just that the marriage didn't take. My second wedding was simple, cheap ($99 dress bought on the Internet) and just us down in Key West......and we are still madly and silly in love. Girls, you can still plan a wonderful day, but don't obsess about it, because.....it is only one day. Put more effort into what you want your marriage to be. I promise it will pay off when you finally do meet your Prince.
