Question
I know the girl has to change a lot when she gets married...I need to contact Social security, DMV, banks, etc.... But, does the guy have to do anything? We just got married a little over 3 weeks ago, and my husband changed his status in his payroll at work, but does he have to do anything else???

Hey guys -
I hope you don't mind me posting in this community. This isn't spam. I am a casting agent for MTV's Engaged & Underage. Please read this flyer and contact me if you're interested!

Are you… 

Engaged & Underage? 

 

Tell us your story!

 

 

Are you engaged and planning your wedding?

 

If you and your fiancee are both between the ages of 18-22 and have already popped the question to your boyfriend or girlfriend, MTV wants to hear from you.

 

We want to shoot all of the excitement of your engagement and wedding for a new documentary series, Engaged & Underage.

 

Who says you're too young to get married? You think you're ready. This is going to be the biggest day in your life. Are you psyched? Are you overwhelmed? What about all of the planning? Have you met your future in-laws? Are you anxious about that? Who's coming to the wedding? What are you fighting about along the way? What's bringing you closer together? Are you going to go through with it? Maybe you'll elope!!!

 

You both must be between the ages of 18 and 22. Best case scenario: you're getting married in 2008. Share the excitement leading up to the greatest day.

 

Email us at engagedandunderage@mtvstaff.com

 

Tell us the details about when you are getting married and where and why this is important to you. Also be sure to include your name, address, home phone, cell phone, work phone, email address and a digital photo of yourself if possible...

The wedding gown, as well as all of the BM dresses were all from David's Bridal, and the color is apple red. Just to give you girls some ideas if needed! Enjoy!

Just a few thoughts
Hello all!

I was perusing my friends page and came upon an entry in one of my other wedding communities. The OP asked if she were alone in her nervousness about being married. Of course she is not alone, and several people responded to her telling her of their fears as well. But it got me thinking about marriage in general.

I have been married once before, which lasted 5 years. And from that marriage I learned a lot about myself and about my expectations in future relationships. I learned that honest, open communication with my partner is very important to me. I learned that when someone asks for space it should be given freely and not begrudgingly. And I learned that "us" time is just as important as "me" time.

But most importantly I learned that change is inevitable. The person we are marrying will not be the same exact person in 50, 10, or even 5 years. As we all grow, we change. We become more the person we are meant to be. As a partner we need to expect, accept, and encourage these changes in our spouses. But we also change as a couple. The things that are fun for us now may not be so as we age. Children may put a damper on our night lives. We may decide that it's more fun to stay at home with a DVD than to go to a crowded theater. Or we may decide that being outdoors is more important to us than being sedentary.

Also, we will forge new frindships, lose touch with old friends, and strengthen some friendships already in place. All of this is a naturally occuring part of maturing, both as individuals and as a couple.

I think that many couples, brides in particular, get caught up in the thrill of the wedding and neglect certain aspects of preparing for the marriage. Blame this if you will on the ever growing wedding industry, on the divorce rate, or on society in general, but I feel that it boils down to a lack of communication.

When we communicate well as partners we are able to discuss things that might be bothersome to us. But often we, as individuals, don't want to "rock the boat" by bringing to the surface anything that could be percieved as a problem. We don't want to be viewed as being petty or nit-picky, so we remain silent. I feel that if we, both as individuals and as couples, are to continue to thrive then any issues we have must be addressed in a timely manner. That is not to say though a confrontational manner, which is often how we as humans choose to communicate. A simple "I" statement ("When this happens I feel...") can go a long way toward putting our partners at ease in our discussions.

In closing, I would like to say that I feel that marriage, as any relationship, takes a lot of caring and understanding to make it work. Each party must be willing and free to challenge the other. And each must recognize and encourage to flourish the other's uniqueness. All of this must be done with the understanding that they are two lives intertwined into one beautiful entity.

Thank you for reading this.
-Winnie

Necklace Company Question
I was thinking about ordering my bridesmaids' necklaces at peora.com I have looked in every department store here and have not found anything worthwhile.
I know that the website sells jewelry at a fraction of the cost. Has anyone used this website? How is the quality of the jewelry? I want to make sure it is decent stuff.

Employment Problems
My future husband (the wedding is in 18 days) doesn't have a job. I have been employed for over a year, but he took an extra semester to finish his degree and finished in December. He's been looking since then, and has only had one interview. There's a good prospect, but it's far from being definite.
