    Ive been married for nearly 20 years, take this advise seriously! Im a browns fan, my wife a steelers fan. Women are always right! When it comes to the wedding plans just tell her its her big day and do what ever she wants at the ceremony. Dont say anything dumb to the videographer before after or during the reception that'll get ya in trouble, in other words leave the new in laws out of it! Dont bring her parents, siblings or any family in an argument until after you say I do, after the wedding then youve got every right to tell her we'll just live like your alcoholic mother! But treat her like a princess, a queen, and oh yeah after nearly 20 years of marriage you'll find out when it comes to sex, you'll have to warm her up like a buick just to get lucky, and some times it may take an hour or so!And last but not least, let her hold the remote control every now and then so she feels important, Thats how Ive survived nearly 20 years with a steeler fan wife, but we only argue 2 days out of the year! Side bets help on that, you just have to be creative with it, LOL!!!!!

    Find a girl who really doesn't have a 'vision' for her wedding, and then go to a great beach destination (we chose St. Croix), invite the family if they can make it, and have a reception party for everyone who can't make it to come to afterwards.

    get catering the day before, but some flowers from someone on the island. Done.
    We did New Orleans. Figured we could have the reception drinking right on Bourbon Street.

    My wife and I eloped to the court house, and many months later had a very small 2K wedding for the family. I suppose I got very lucky in that sense. It doesn't make her any less crazy, but hey that is all women. After 16 years, it must be my kind of crazy.

    My advice, just don't do anything stupid. Which means don't open your mouth until after the wedding. Everything you say and do with be overanalyzed or taken the wrong way due to her stress level.

    The crazy thing? We guys keep signing up for all of this.

    sheesh my fiance is killing me.. at least there isn't a game next weekend...
    I don't know if I could handle a week of her getting ready for the wedding and then a loss afterwards...
    I would never use the word "FiancÚ" to describe a girlfriend. Too much stigma attached to using that word.

    2. If your girl's getting on your last nerve, feed her marshmallows. It's impossible to talk with a mouthful of marshmallows.
    3. Have a lot of sex this week. The dynamic changes after you say 'I do'. There are things every woman will do to get you to say 'I do'. You have one final week to take advantage.
    4. If she insists on arguing, insist she argue naked.

    Congrats on taking the plunge. May all your ups and downs be between the sheets.

    I planned our wedding. Much less stressful that way. Some of her family just about crapped at the rehearsal when I said, "this is the way it's going to be..." The looked at her and she just told them I was running the show.

    Being married has been waaaaaaaaaaaaaay better than anything to do with the Steelers, this year or any other.

    IF you purposely scheduled your wedding for the Steelers bye week AND your fiance understood/agreed - then you're off to a terrific start. Now reward her understanding of your steeler obsession by agreeing to everything she wants for the big day without complaining about the cost.

    any marriage that allows for football sundays and the occasional 'dutch oven' has a high probability of long-term success.

    so it's best to resolve those two issues sooner rather than later.
