On Weddings and Simchas

For those of you who haven't noticed that we now refer to each other as (the) wife and (the) Husband, we got married a little over 2 weeks ago... Looking back at our blog we really didn't write anything in regards to it.. So for now... a couple of interesting points made in the week before and a the week after in regards to Weddings..

1. My wife (then still Fiance) and I came to the conclusion that some one got it really wrong when they talked about not seeing each other the week before the wedding (we didn't keep to that tradition for our own reasons). What it should be is that the bride and groom should not have to see their family a week before the wedding. That would solve lots of the stress related issues around the family (in our case those were the biggest deals and we would have both loved to have been somewhere else when that was going on)...

2. Talking to my best friends Wife (got married last march) about the 7 Brachot and the whole crowds that come in and out of our life for the entire week... she said that she really understands why people go on a honey moon right after the wedding.. Us Jews got it all wrong again... let the families party with big dinners and all... let the newly-wed get the Hell out of there and go be by themselves for a bit.

other than that.... it really was great wedding lots of fun, good food (ya I even got to eat).. great band (thanks - we picked them ourselves) and a really good evening...
and so far.. Married life has been treating us very well...

Mazal Tov to you!! I am glad married life is treating you well. (Check back with us in a year or two! LOL)

I like what you wrote about not seeing "family" in the week before a wedding!

Good luck to you both!

Peace!
