    Let's Add Up The Wedding Costs!!!!

    Okay Gents, let's start a tally for how much it costs to get married. I'll get it started:

    1. Decent tux w/ all of accoutrement - $ 800.00 to $ 900.00

    2. Wedding venue - starting at $ 1,500.00 I realize that cheap, no-tell motels have a ball room sometimes and that they can be rented, but I don't think wedding receptions are held there. Maybe I'm wrong, Sharquita and Tyrone possibly got married in there.

    Even though my last one was years ago now, I personally spent around 5k mostly on the week long "honeymoon" not including the damned ring.
    Spent to much on that damned ring, and about had a cow when I found out she was taking it off and putting it on the sink in public restrooms before washing her damned hands. One of the things I made sure stayed with me when she moved out.

    Of people I've known (no movie stars) the bigger the wedding, the shorter the marriage. Made you sick to think of the waste.

    When my friends married, the preacher got kind of pissed at the bride. On love, honor and obey, she made him cut out the obey. I aint no dog, she says.
    Every day I make the world a little bit worse.

    Women don't owe men anything. Not a smile. Not sex, Not even empathy or compassion. Men don't owe women anything either. Not interest. Not resources. And definitely not commitment or children.

    Good on yer.

    Took me 6 months of all sorts of trickery to get the engagement ring back....but I eventually succeeded. Didn't want to be 'that guy'.

    It wasn't a conventional looking engagement ring, she picked it out herself - but it was a lovely item. To most of them it is only a nice piece of bling and not a symbol of what it represents.

    It'll stay in a drawer getting dusty as far as I'm concerned. I'd rather flush it down the toilet than allow her to glance at it one more time.

    Yes...I've had that 'obey' argument before when the vows have come up in conversation. I wouldn't mind but why is it only the 'obey' they have a problem with?

    It's love, honour and obey......in reality, they are going to have serious issues performing all three of those promises....not just the latter one!!

    Don’t forget the hidden cost of interest owed.
    Most young dudes can not afford a wedding so they borrow money.
    An article I read a while back ( sorry no link) said the average US wedding is 30k.

    I was one of those people that doesn't like to spend money that I don't have. It was still far more than I care to think about.

    When I gave it to her she told me that if we ever broke up she would give it back, Damned if I was not going to make her live up to that one.

    LOL! Exactly the amount I have spent.
    I endured years of shaming, now the men that tried to shame me are jealous af and the females are post wall, cat owning, land whales.

    Everything. A wedding will cost you everything.
    - Feminism is Cancer.
    - Where have all the good men gone? Away. Far far away... from you.
    - NAWALT? Maybe, but EWALT means Russian Roulette is a much safer bet...
