"It was like knowing you have a work meeting but you don't want to go." Here's a sad article about women who get married even though they know they don't really like their husbands. Do you like your husband? Thank god, there's a quiz.
husbands, lady mags, marriage, happiness
Wait, so a 33 yr old caterer got married in a $15,000 dress and 7 carat diamond? That's the part I'm interested in.
@DrFeelGood My first reaction exactly!
@DrFeelGood: Sounds like a good business decision.
@DrFeelGood For reals!
Also, I went to high school with the therapist, JG.
It's a good thing the top related link at the bottom of the MC story is an article called "Are Women Too Picky? Marry Him Already!" Otherwise I might be concerned about societal pressure and mixed messages.
@jetztinberlin I was just about to mention that!
The quiz? Did anyone look at it/take it? No? Allow me to sum up, Captain Obvious-style: "Do you and your partner like the same things, are on the same page regarding family planning etc, love to take vacations together, settle differences in a civilized manner and/or have mutual respect for one another? Then you might have what it takes to make it in this crazy mixed up world!" Ground-breaking stuff here people. Pay attention.
@kayjay I gave up when it determined that duh our fave couples vacation would so be at the beach.
@kayjay I took it. Good thing, because I apparently have found "Mr. Right"! And I was just about to write Ask-A-Dude about all my relationship reservations.
@kayjay I got Mr. Right too, but they didn't give really supply any good answers for you to choose from. Like the in-law question didn't have an option of "I hate them."
@kayjay Crap! I am with Mr. So-Wrong-It's-Right! Keep my head on my shoulders! But don't be such a picky bitch! Say yes to the dress! Shed to wed! Your wedding will still happen, it just won't be perfect! Ladybrain ladythings overload. Where the hell is Mr. SWIR with his manroot when I need him?
Seriously. I needed "Our in-laws speak different languages and like to chill out at home and refrain from worrying about stupid shit like this."
@kayjay The questions were like: Have the two of you ever had a conversation when you were sober and clothed? Yes? Then you'll be just fine.
Tangentially related: Thank god I grew up reading science fiction, in which female role models do not generally get married. The real world is still sometimes disappointing, but for very different reasons, and I'm also probably more grateful than the average person that the apocalypse hasn't happened yet. Small mercies!
@theharpoon the book reading part really sealed the quiz's validity for me. do you like ya fiction, romance novels, biographies, or thrillers? because you are a modern woman and that is all you read.
ha. should have read a couple more comments.
Well, on the upside, according to the Internet, I had found Mr Right. On the downside, why the hell isn't there an option for loving "Young Adult books but Edward is a stalker douchebag and clearly Marie Claire doesn't read many books and go read Jellicoe Road and Before I Fall, stupid internet quiz"?
Which do *you* prefer of the categories of literature, which are as follows: Romances, Biographies, Thrillers, and Young adult fiction?
@Saiko I know, right?? That was so offensive.
@Saiko precisely my problem! I read real books! And we agree on vacation destinations with more complicated names than 'beach.' And our parents have never met each other because mine live in LA and his live in Russia. Why did I even click on that Marie Claire link? I should have known better.
@nhawthorne I hated all of those questions! We never go to the beach, but we always want to vacation in the same places. I read actual grown-up, literary fiction. Our parents get along well enough, but live nowhere near each other (plus my dad is an atheist and his dad is a devout Christian so...yeah, the less unsupervised contact the better). Who writes these things? My 10 year old niece could do better.
