There are a lot of women around here–5, to be exact. So in a flash of (what we think is) genius, we’re inaugurating a brand-new column that lets men have a voice. Fiancés, husbands, boyfriends, gay or straight: all of their thoughts and experiences on love and weddings are welcome. My husband Rob–and some of his friends–will be appearing here on a probably irregular weekend basis, so if you have any questions that you’d like to see answered, or want a friend or lover to be featured in an upcoming column, let us know in the comments, or shoot us a note at info @ bridebird.com.
Sarah, who knows Rob well, writes this intro:
Beginning with your engagement and throughout the months leading up to your wedding, the lovers and haters come out of the woodwork. You find out who your real friends are, and who is sketch. You also experience your fiancé(e) under pressure, possibly seeing his or her human flaws for the first time. In our column, Dr. Robert Powers exercises his unique brand of common sense and insight to answer readers’ wedding and relationship questions.
How do guys really feel about wedding registries?
So I’m going to speak up for guys everywhere, and give you a list of things that they actually do want, things that would make them happy on a daily basis.
Lest anyone think I stole this list from Ron Swanson: we are friends, but this is all my own work.
In no particular order:
Bacon of the month club. Artisan bacon, delivered right to your door. I think this is a together gift.
Roku. So you can enjoy your favorite TV shows and music at the touch of a remote.
A Kegerator. See above.
Monogrammed Grill Tool Set. It’s got my name on it, so no one steals my shit.
Cordless Power Tool Kit. What you would get me is far better than anything I’d get myself.
This completes my zombie apocalypse kit that will protect my new bride.
