anyway. that’s the rom-com i want to watch.
i have marriage and weddings on the brain because my sister and her fella are getting married this summer and i get to be the matron of honor. they’re a very cool couple who make each other more awesome versions of themselves and really have fun together, but are also very real and can get the heart of issues and know each other, get each other, and don’t rely on drama. they are relaxed, real, and easy.
so i’m down with their wedding, because they are awesome and very focused on their relationship. but in general, the drama and romantical impermanence of the WEDDING thing is bleh to me. it’s the people who seem to be all about the wedding and none about the marriage who have me all in frets. i feel like the intent to celebrate a tried and true love by throwing a big party makes a lot of sense. but the perfect, surprising, dramatic and climactic expectations of typical wedding seasons are unecessarily stressful and sentimental.
