          I confess that it makes me crazy when DH tries to make my friends his friends. When we had problems in the past, I turned to my friends. Now that we are married, he will often get chummy with the guys in my group, and want to do guy stuff with them, and I get insane over it. I guess I feel like he has his friends and I have mine, and I don't want to be trumped because he wants a guys night out. I guess its like, if he is out with my friends on his guys night out, then I would have no one to make plans with because he is with them.

          Then he was talking about doing some type of football fantasy draft at a bar with all the guys and a couple of girls (yes, my friends) and I just can't deal with it. I told him it was fine but if the guys wives and girlfriends are there, or else the girls in the group that are not in the draft are going to be there, then he shouldnt consider it a guys night, and he can't just be with my entire posse without me.

          Another part of it is that he doesnt bring anyone to the table friend wise, but a couple of stoner guys, so it just feels like "taking" not "sharing". Am I horrible? I just leaned on these people when DH and I broke up early on in the relationship.

I agree with this...it can't be a guys night if gfs/wives/other girls are going to be there.

            I don't really see this as valid. Just because he doesn't have friends for you to hang out with doesn't mean he shouldn't hang out with yours. Think of it this way - at least he likes your friends & there are no issues with him hanging out with them. You all can do things together instead of you going off with your friends & him going with his. You get to hang out together with all the people you care about.

                I confess that I'm nervouse about my shower that my MOH is planning, and this is stressing me out more than the actual DW! I'm such a simple person and don't want elaborate things (catered dinner?!). I've been on my own for 10 years, and in this house for 5 and have absolutely everything I need! I don't want gifts, and I especially don't want to sit infront of everyone opening gifts for an hour. I also don't want to play any of those corny games.

                If I could plan it my way, I'd have a BBQ! This way, I could socialize more with my friends and family.

                Anyone else feel the same way about showers? I hope my MOH takes into consideration everything I want and don't want?!

                Michael and Phil Steingard are located in Ontario, but travel to Punta Cana quite often during the year. There is a good chance they will be down already during your wedding week, so this will cut travel costs

                  i hear ya about the shower ... i hate being the center of attention! a lot of girls never wanted showers but i guess it's like a rite of passage for a bride, lol. a necessary evil?

                  i want to go to your bbq ... that sounds like much more fun! :)

                    I confess I dont know how to feel that all my mother's wealthy friends are the ones not coming to the wedding. I want them there to keep my mom busy and away from me. They all are the most easily able to afford it, and they all acted as if it was a huge burden and are not attending. WTH

                    Anyways, maybe it will be for the best and the will go overboard on gifts since they are not coming Prob wishful thinking, they are prob all stingy.
