    You do know there's no manual right?
      I remember when I got married.. We were standing on Philadelphia Avenue when I whistled for a cab and when it came near the license plate said Fresh and it had dice in the mirror. If anything, I could say that this cab was rare, but I thought Nah, forget it, yo holmes to Bel Air!

    "Life's a bitch... and then you marry one!"

    Seriously though, I've been married for 11 years and together for 17. It's been great. Congratulations on your big day!

    You get more zug-zug in your first year of marriage than in the remainder of your marriage put together. So why are you wasting time reading this?
      this is wisdom that was imparted on me just before i got married. and it is completely true.

      Congrats!

    "Oh, isn't that wonderful! You have finally found that special someone that you want to annoy for the rest of your life. Do you have a pierced ear? Because, a man who has a pierced ear is better prepared for marriage. He has experienced pain and bought jewelry" -- Rita Rudner.
    Congratulations, mate.

    I'll just cite one of my T-shirts:

    It's better to have loved and lost than to live with the psycho for the rest of your life.

    ... oh, wait, that's for occasion of divorce ... um ... I guess I'll go with a Sam Keen quote:

    We come to love not by finding the perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly.

    I was going to say All of the Above, however I didn't agree with Sucker. Congratulations, wonderful news!

    I'll share the quote my wife's aunt shared with me the day after we got married nearly 18 years ago: "Always remember: Ain't Momma happy, ain't nobody happy. Ain't Daddy happy, ain't nobody care."

    I wish you and your wife happiness, long life, and prosperity, and a love that continues to grow throught your lives!

    CONGRATULATIONS!

    Qutoing from Dickens, it will be "...the best of times and the worst of times."

    In my 30 years of marriage (been together 35 years), the success/long-term-viability of the relationship depends upon which, "the best" or "the worst", prevails. I wish you all "the best".

    While I have not personally endured the chaos of a similar event, I know a number who have of late. The one thing I tell them all (bride and groom alike) is to try to remember to enjoy the day. I have seen too many who let the pressure and stress get to them, making what should be one of the happiest days of their lives miserable.

    *lifts his glass* As you begin your walk together through life, here's wishing the two of you peace, prosperity, good health, a continually deepening and growing love, and all the best.

    I have assayed the married state twice. The best I can say about it is that I managed to prize a best friend out of the second attempt, & since I'd needed one for a long, long time, this was in reality a Very Good Thing.

    On the other hand I have come to the sad conclusion that I in the area of "romance" I am essentially a singleton, and that my years spent agonizing over girls/women were really in vain.

    I betrayed my True Muse (astronomy) because I got this strange idea women dug me more when I was trying to be an actor ... and that was the worst mistake of my life.

    So far.

    Marriage is like taking a bath.... once you get used to it, it's not so hot.

    So, don't ever get "used to it". Keep it exciting! You'll find it takes a bit of effort, but it's way more than worth it.

    Congratulations!

    Remember the first is always the practice marriage, its the second that you get right.

    There is no do-over after "I do".

    "Never mind, I know good divorce lawyer..."

    , once I have congratulated my friend. He did not laughed, though he likes brutal jokes. Now he is divorced.

    After just having re-read "A Man For All Seasons", I can tell you that there is much ado in this world about marriage. May your courtship linger long, and your days be filled with song.

    Everyone has advice for you based upon their experience.

    Take the advice you need based upon your experience.

    In the end, Life is a tie. Make your choices so that as you near the finish line you can look back over the journey with happiness in your heart.

    Enjoy!
