    Interesting. It appears that Phil is leaving for work and it is morning. Has he already moved in?

    Seems it’s later, Yesterdays he had a beer. Maybe he’s going home now after a nice dinner and chat about the wedding..

    My father told me to “Show up, shut up, and say I do”

    And that way he doesn’t have to actually DO anything.

    That’s another great thing about being a man. During wedding planning, all you have to do is get measured for your tux.

    I was working and paid for my own wedding. I made more $$ than Mom.

    I had hoped my husband-to-be would say something like that. But no, he insisted on being involved in almost every detail of planning the wedding. We’ve been married for 30+ years, but we still “battle for control” on lots of issues. I’ve had to learn that I can’t have everything the way (or when) I want it. Not an easy lesson, but spending time in a wheelchair will make it a mandatory lesson, unless you hate harmony.

    I tried this approach in my current marriage and it didn’t work out.

    I bought a new day dress and we got married in the back yard of my fiance’s house with 4 family members as witnesses. Best wedding ever! and we’ve been married 31 years.

    The hubby & I (being in our 30/40s) pretty much ran the show. Admittedly, neither of us had any children with ideas that should be at least considered. I did a lot of legwork (it was my town); he paid for more than I did (better job). But I can’t think of too many things besides my dress that he didn’t have a say on. We agreed on the venue, the colors, I ran the songs past him for the ceremony, he helped make the centerpieces (plus took my ideas and made them work) and table assignments, designed the program & invites… He’s a great guy! We had some input and help from our respective parents, but that’s all.

    For us future hubby and I planed the wedding the photographer chose our date, my mom paid for my wedding dress $50 then told my sister she paid too much she wanted cheaper. I made my own bouquet. Our dinner was very cheep. My mom grew up being cheap as so my dad. My dad wanted us to elope he buy washer/dryer. We had our wedding. In April be 34 years.

    As to the issue of where Phil lives, it’s a comic strip. If you read past strips, Phil is often drawn wearing his uniform.
