What she knows
She knows she wants to register at Macy’s Home and Nordstrom
She knows that she has to cut the guess list of 300 by at least 50 people
She knows that she’ll have 1 Matron of Honor and 12 Bridesmaids
She knows that the dresses will be Coral Blue with a touch of Ivory
She knows that the flower arrangements will cost at least $5,000
She knows that the cake will be 6 tiers with a butter cream icing
She knows that she wants 4 photographers to capture the memories
She knows that she wants a Honeymoon in Paris
She knows that she wants a 5-bedroom house
She knows that she wants happily ever after

What she doesn’t know
She doesn’t know if he resents his father
She doesn’t know if he respects his mother
She doesn’t know how he feels about children
She doesn’t know his religious beliefs
She doesn’t know his financial obligations
She doesn’t know his sexual history
She doesn’t know he suppresses his anger
She doesn’t know that he lacks motivation
She doesn’t know his dreams for the future
She doesn’t know he believes in white lies
She doesn’t know he’s not a man of his word

What he wants?
He wants a wife who resembles his mother
He wants a house filled with kids
He wants a clean house to come home to
He wants a partner who supports him
He wants a hopeless romantic
He wants a collection of old recipes
He wants occasionally words of encouragement
He wants to save for their future
He wants to be king of his castle

What he got
He got a woman with emotional baggage
He got a woman who doesn’t trust men
He got a woman who is not sure about children
He got a woman who is right about everything
He got a woman who likes to spend money
He got a woman who lacks affection
He got a woman with a tongue like razor
He got a woman who can’t manage her weight
He got a woman who doesn’t share in his interest

I believe in marriage but we need more role models and less selfishness!
