by Azure

About The Man Registry Did you catch the story a few weeks back about the first wedding presided over by a robot? Leave it to the Japanese to eliminate the human element of wedding officiating. It’s an impressive feat; however, the robot did seem a little boring.

A Mystery Wedding (and how you can help)

by Azure

About a month ago a wedding planner, who will remain nameless, approached me to tell me about her plan. It seems that one of her employees, who has been married for ten years, never got to have the wedding of her dreams, or any wedding. One thing after another has interfered with this woman's ability to have a ceremony. So, as an engagement present, this wedding planner, and the woman's husband are planning a "stealth wedding." They're doing everything from invitations to the dress...

by Azure

For All You Sports Fans Out There… I’m a Chicago sports fan through and through. And if there’s ever a Chicago team competing, you better believe I’ll be rooting for my home team.

About The Man Registry Jewelry designer Johnny Brookheart is offering diamond encrusted engagement tongue rings. Yes... diamond tongue rings. It's part of a new trend called alternative engagement.

The Man Registry: Keep Your Marriage Fresh with the Better Marriage Blanket

by Azure

About The Man Registry Statistics say that finances are the topic that married couples argue about the most. As a married man, I have to disagree. Sure, my wife and I occasionally will have heated discussions about why I spent $80 on a Remote Control Cooler or why she insists on buying a new purse each time we go to the mall. However, the most common argument we have, by a mile, is about gas in the bedroom. Yes, that kind of gas. Look, I’m a guy and I love eating greasy man-food...
