Who Says a Wedding has to be Expensive?

Read how John and Sherry brought 75 of their family and friends together for a very classy and fun wedding for less than $4,000. It looks like everyone had a great time.

Keeping the budget low is a good way to avoid family battles or the sort of debt that seeps into every disagreement a new couple must get through in their first few years together. For those with the budget to afford more, imagine spending the difference on education or a more comfortable home or perhaps launching a business. Ten years down the road, the investment in the marriage instead of the wedding will have paid off handsomely.

Thanks to Smart Marriages for the heads-up on their wedding story.

Spontaneously Boring Spouses

"My husband never plans anything fun. If we take a vacation, travel to visit family or even go out on a date, it's because I came up with the idea and made all the arrangements myself. If I left things to him, we would never do anything unless we could do it right now, right here, in whatever clothes we're already wearing. And it's not just him. Most of my friends avoid planning anything, too. If I don't set a date, make the reservations and figure out who's driving, nothing happens."

Sound familiar? If you want to know why you get stuck with the planning, what it says about your relationship, and how to make a change, get yourself a copy of the August 2009 issue of Going Bonkers? magazine. My article is on page 29. This issue contains a bunch of other great relationship articles and one by Wayne Dyer on changing your self-defeating thinking habits, too.

If you can't find Going Bonkers? at Borders, Barnes & Noble, or Books-a-Million, let me know, and I'll help you get your hands on a copy.
