The Bachelor Ben: Did He or Didn’t He?

by Azure

I used to be a die hard fan of The Bachelor but I'll admit my interest has waned the past few years. To me, it just started to feel so fake... So I didn't tune into a single episode this season, but I've been hearing a lot of buzz about Bachelor Ben Flajnik and his new fiance Courtney. Before The Bachelor finale, a sneaky paparazzo snapped this pic of Ben with another woman... Now, I'm not engaged but I do have a man. And if I saw a picture of him doing this with another...

Top Five Fashion Faux Pas Grooms Make

by Azure

After sharing these 9 wedding dress don'ts that every bride should avoid, I got to thinking... what about the grooms? Oh, and the hapless fashion choices some have made... Brides and grooms are two very different animals, and men in general don't care much about fashion, style or trends. Most view shopping as a punishment, not a treat, so it can only be expected that grooms take a lax approach to their wedding day attire. But an un-dapper groom won’t do his drop dead gorgeous...

Mangagement Rings:  I Do or I Don’t?

by Oh Lovely Day

Have you heard about this new trend of engaged men wearing engagement rings?  They are called mangagement rings.  Yes, MAN-gagement.  I recently saw a statistic claiming that 17% of men actually want to wear a mangagement ring.  I find that hard to believe and wonder who was asked that question, men or women. My first reaction on the whole thing is that mangagement rings are just silly.  I mean, I know I’m generalizing here, but for the most part we ladies wear engagement...

When to Get a Pre-Nup

by John Scrofano

Your lawyer will probably tell you to get a pre-nup, citing the data: 40% of marriages in the U.S. end in divorce. However, only 11% of people getting married think it will be them. Play the odds, not the emotions. Divorces with pre-nups are a lot less nasty than those without.  Get one! Even Suze Orman agrees. Your counselor will probably tell you to stay far, far away from a pre-nup.  He or she will likely cite the same data as your lawyer, but say that starting your marriage...

So when it comes to deciding whether you should splurge or save on wedding details, things can often get dicey....

Live In Sin or Save It For Marriage?

by Azure

I was excited to tackle this topic because growing up in a strict Catholic household, I had “save yourself for marriage” (and everything that goes with it) drilled into my impressionable head.  Having a child out of wedlock would shame you and your family, and moving in with your significant other before tying the knot was “living in sin”.  Or so they said. While I can respect this older school of thought, my personal opinion is that I’d never, ever marry someone without...

Decoding Your Groom: What He Says vs. What He Means

by The Man Registry

As a former bride and...
