Special to OneWed from The Plunge This isn't a moral argument. This isn't about whether the pole demeans women, sends the wrong message, or sets our nation back a century. That's a legitimate question, but it's not the one I'm asking. And this isn't a "cheating" argument. This isn't about whether the pole crosses a line, betrays your girlfriend, or sets your marriage back a decade.... (more)

Dear Wedding Maven, I have read every wedding advice column and nothing came close to addressing my issue! I was my best friend’s Maid of Honor. She really didn't ask much of me since she did most of the stuff with her very involved fiancé. When she did ask me to do something or be somewhere all else was put aside. It was her day and I wanted to make it spectacular. After her... (more)

Special to OneWed from The Plunge It’s the truth. Not all guys like strippers. Odds are also good that for whatever reason, in his heart of hearts, the groom doesn't even want to go there, not for his bachelor party, not with wedding just weeks away. Also, frankly, it’s kind of played out, kind of a cliché. You can do better. You can get more creative. In addition to the ho-hum... (more)

I love my mother but I don’t want her... (more)

Special to OneWed from The Plunge This one’s for both the brides and grooms. In the next few months, you will be asked about your wedding again and again and again. Sometimes this will be fun. Sometimes this will be torture. Like when you’re pestered by your annoying co-workers. Remember Bull Durham? Kevin Costner tells a wet-behind-the-ears Tim Robbins: “You're gonna have to learn...

Special to OneWed from The Plunge Maybe you just got engaged over the holidays. Or maybe you’re stuck in the thick of wedding planning. Either way, this year, you’ll be spending lots of time with your new family. (And even if “lots” is only one dinner, well, with your In-Laws, that still counts as “lots.”) First impressions count. Your manners count. So to survive this... (more)

Special advice for grooms from The Plunge We all know the cliché. She plans the wedding like she’s masterminding the launch of a major corporation, lugging around a fat nerdy binder, both appalled by your indifference and, simultaneously, unforgiving when your suggestions betray your naiveté. So you say nothing, do nothing, think nothing. That’s your job, right? Actually, no. Not... (more)

It started by her giving demands about what we need to do for the wedding. It... (more)
