      He is talking about limerence, the phycological phenomenon that causes butterflies in the stomach and infatuation of a person. Limerence lasts between 18 months to 3 years, but the end of that doesn’t mean the end of a relationship. Good relationships are between people who understand that their relationship could grow, change, or even disappear.

    The wedding tax is real y’all. If you notice, the one thing you won’t find on the websites of venues, florists, caterers, photographers, etc. is the price. Even when you inquire about their services and want to discuss price, they give you their pitch first and then once the deal is finalized then they reveal the price. It just makes it that much harder to shop around. Plus since you don’t get married so often, no one really knows how much wedding things cost. It’s a once in a lifetime thing for the most part. I would say don’t mention it’s for a wedding but I feel that being dishonest is not a good way to save money.

    Weddings, especially now in the social media age, are nothing but “ego wanks” for people to show off how many friends they have and how cool they think they are. All the pictures on Facebook, all of the “cutesy” things everybody does to try to outdo each other, it’s just about showing yourself off. Most, like 80% of the people, at most big weddings mean nothing to the bride or groom. They are just there for them to have a mass of people to show off to. This is why I hate weddings. It’s become basically the prom for adults. It’s about the “cool” kids showing off their social wealth.

    My parents married when I was 10. Mom wore a blue shirt and jeans, dad wore a striped shirt and shorts. I wore a hoodie. We had two guests. Grandma watched via Facetime. But, they're not poor, we just wanted it short. You see, we were on summer break and wanted to head to next town as fast as possible. We like to travel. And to save money. And to wear pants

    The exact reason I hate weddings with a passion. I wanted nothing to do with with this kind of ceremony. Even my fiance promised we wouldn't do this. However, friends and family pressured her into going with a traditional ceremony because culture has this preconceived notion that this is how it's supposed to look. I freaking hate weddings in our culture. Don't expect me to smile like the geek playing the groom in this video. I'm going to hate every moment of my wedding day.

    Okay video - some sneaky anti-marriage/anti-family values portrayed though.
    I'm not a fan of the last sentiment that 'couples fall out of love' as though this is a reason not to get married.

    Of course married couples fall out of love - that's the point of marriage, to stay together so then when you fall out of love - there is incentive to find it again with your partner. Falling in love is easy - maintaining love is the hard part. Getting married isn't important - being married is important. Team work so life isn't so lonely, life-long companionship, and probably the best part - raising kids. I think this is the point of marriage.

    Weddings :
    Tons of delicious food being wasted - knowing that tons of people and children around the world going to bed hungry.
    Where the bride and groom are too stressful to enjoy their special moment - knowing that they could have spent all that money to pay their house, car or business investment instead of trying to please everybody's greedy needs.
    Where while seated, the girls are envying other pretty girls AND the guys are envying other rich guys - instead of watching the wedding ceremony.
    And the list goes on.
    For all the reasons - Eloping is better.

    The more money intrudes, the more longevity exits. The cost of many weddings would be better spent as the down payment on a house. But hey, everybody likes parties. Especially the poor.

    Weddings are only about status and keeping wealth in families. They were never about love and so many stupid people think they are. The groom doesn't actually really care about all the fancy details the bride carries on about for months on end. How stupid is the engagement ring? What a waste of cash. It is only there so the man spends money on the women and makes it harder for him to back out.

    It always annoys me a little bit when men close both buttons on a suit. Just looks super weird and I think it's uncomfortable to walk around like that. Karl Lagerfeld even said a suit jacket doesn't need to be closed at all since it makes the jacket look more natural.
