What were the best pieces of relationship advice you've ever had? My mom has always had three good ones that I find fitting:
- Wear rubber gloves to do the dishes because men like soft hands. They also like head scratches.
- Go on a really long road trip with somebody before you commit--so many things can go wrong in those cramped spaces on the road, and you want to make sure you and that person do OK under pressure.
- Know somebody through all four seasons before you marry. People behave differently in different seasons. This one was actually from Beth Dowdy, and it sounds like an excellent plan.
But now we have this winning advice from Bill Murray that I think blow all ideas right outa the water. If you're up for this, I could marry you. As the story goes, a group of guys at a bachelor party in Charleston, SC asked him to make a speech. This is what he said:
“If you have someone that you think is The One, don’t just sort of think in your ordinary mind, ‘Okay, let’s pick a date. Let’s plan this and make a party and get married.’ Take that person and travel around the world. Buy a plane ticket for the two of you to travel all around the world, and go to places that are hard to go to and hard to get out of. And if when you come back to JFK, when you land in JFK, and you’re still in love with that person, get married at the airport.”
Thanks Bill! WILL DO!
