Glad we got that Cleared up

As many of you know Brian and I are in the midst of planning our wedding.

We just confirmed the date with our officiant and were given a package for newly engaged couples.

It included two sheets of identical questions for Brian and I to answer together about our daily living practices, things we find annoying, and future plans.

Things that couples should discuss prior to marriage.

Good conversation starters.

Good argument starters.

We both filled out our sheets, me the more eager student than Brian, had it completed in seconds and was ready to be graded!

With a red pen in hand I was ready to mark off the Yes/No questions we had completed. Some silly and some thought provoking but all requiring an answer, no matter how long the couple had been together.

“I hate when there is hair left on the soap.”

“I want a dog.”

“I think both parties should be responsible for household chores.”

Our answers matched up perfectly and we rolled with laughter as we read through questions such as:

“We will wait until after marriage to have children.”


“Toilet paper must be hung a certain way every time.”


And then the question that almost ended the engagement….

“Infidelity is grounds for divorce.”

Brian read my answer out loud, “yes.”

And looked at me in confusion, waiting for me to read his.

Glancing down I saw his answer.



No? I stared at him in disbelief while he stared back with just as much confusion.

Collecting the papers up I asked him why he answered No to the question of infidelity, why he didn’t see it as grounds for divorce.

He placed his hand over mine, looked lovingly into my eyes and spoke softly.

“If we can’t have another baby because we have difficulty getting pregnant I would never leave you.”


Not infidelity.

Glad we got that cleared up before the wedding.

    Hilarious- definitely glad you cleared that up. I wish that my husband and I had gotten to do that before we got married. I think it’s great to have those conversations and those classes facilitate that. Maybe with a class like that we could have had an ‘if you leave your socks on the couch then…’ agreement. :). Good luck with the planning!

    I don’t want to open a can of worms…so maybe I will keep my bg mouth …my thoughts on infidelity and infertility are very opinionated.

    That being said….it is funny, reading the wrong word can be the demise of many a happy realtionship..don’t you think? 🙂

    I think you and I would have a lot to talk about if/when we meet!
