Congratulations, you may now wake the bride
Help me, Blog Guy, I think my marriage may be in trouble.
I’m not sure my wife still loves me. She doesn’t pay attention, she tunes me out, she frequently falls asleep when I’m talking….
Now, now, young man, there are adjustments to be made in every relationship. How long have you two been married?
Oh. Well, a wedding day is stressful, especially for the bride. It’s quite common for a woman to be exhausted after the ceremony, and maybe catch a quick nap.
She fell asleep in the middle of the vows, Blog Guy.
DURING the ceremony? What did you do?
I tried whispering in her ear to wake her up, but she didn’t hear me over the loud music in her earphones.
Uh-oh. She listened to music while you were supposed to be getting married? Perhaps you could have reached down and lovingly squeezed her hand, then.
Sure, but I was afraid she’d lose her place in the magazine she was reading.
