I'm not going to be sappy here but do appreciate these idyllic days.......I don't think that many guys would have had the joie d' vive to have posted their exhuberance at their approaching marriage like you did and it's refreshing to see.......you must be doing something right......always love her more than yourself and you'll do just fine........learned that in a Social Study Marriage & Family Class.....the prof was wonderful........hang in there.........

Congrats Matt. My grandmother gave me the following sound and advice:

Trust, communication and compromise are the best assets a married couple can have.

and

Never let the sun go down on an argument.

I have kept to that advice and DH and I have been married for 5 years with lots more to come.

Congrats!!

And make sure, when the rug rats do come along, you don't get lost in them.

MAKE TIME FOR YOURSELVES AT ANY COST!!!

You won't regret it, but you will regret not making the time later on. And capture as much on film as possible, savor every moment they fly by, and never be afraid to apologize even if you are positive you are right. No argument is worth proving you are right...

Good luck!!

congrats matt.

ignore all of the advice given by women here, unless you want to be the wife. with what you've posted, i think you'll be fine if you trust yourself and your feelings (and don't screw things up by thinking anyone else's grass looks greener. ). good luck and god bless your marriage.

lol mav. on film? mpeg, mpeg2, mpeg4, quicktime, avi, avchd, divx, dv, wmv, ...

it's all about compression. sort of like marriage. the ack being "yes dear".

btw, expatty, a great sense of humor can make up for a huge asset, for both goose and gander...

No pictures of the wife and I just yet...but here are two from the Bahamas to hold you over until then. The sunset picture is from the private Sandals island, and the other is a view from our room. :)
