Pre-Marriage Advice

Mom sat me down before I got married and said, "Honey?"
Oh God.
"When your husband asks you what you want....."
How do I stop her?
"You make sure you tell him jewelry. Don't let him buy you a set of beer mugs for Christmas. Always, always say jewelry."

Feeling like I dodged a bullet, the conversation really didn’t register until the morning of our first Christmas together. After opening my presents I realized what mom was trying to tell me. Ask for jewelry and you won’t get his and her beer mugs from your husband.

Pre-Marriage advice? If you even have the slightest concern that the person might not be the best person for you, or you see things that make you wonder, don't do it. Even if you have spent countless dollars getting ready, buying a dress, reserving a hall...don't do it. Worse mistake you can make is marrying someone who you realize is NOT going to make you happy. It happens all the time, don't ignore the warning signs.
