Family feud

I'm sure most of you who are married has gone through this phase: planning the wedding! You would think that something as wonderful as this would be such a happy occasion and everyone is just soooooo happy for you. *BZZZZZTTT* Wrong!

Somehow parents seem to object to every single thing their children wants: their choice of house, their banquet venue, their dress, how many guests to invite...etc... and even to the extent of their choice of partner!!!

Argh!!! It is as if this is their wedding. Er, hello... who's the one getting married here????

I realize that I may think that my parents are annoying, never agree with my opinions and never see my point of view!
But if I were in their shoes, it's the same: my kid is annoying, never agrees with my opinions and never sees my point of view!

There!! One more reason why I never want to have kids. Just like parents, you too, can't choose who your kids'll be. YOu've got to love them no matter what they are.

The only person you do get to choose, is your partner for life! And that, I've made my choice! :)

Thats the way the cookie crumbles, babe! Don't worry, it will all work out. We also, didn't get what we wanted, so we sorta ended up with a few ceremonies..one for his parents, one for mine and one for us. At the end of the day, it's not the wedding that's important, it's the marriage..;)
