I remember getting married oh so many years ago, back when online registries for wedding gifts were still brand new. I remember the thrill of holding the scanner at Crate & Barrel and just picking out dishes, cookware, glasses, etc. until my heart was content (my soon-to-be hubby got to choose some items as well). After all, I was young and love, so I knew that the key to any good relationship was compromise.
Turns out that after being married for more than a decade, I have come to realize that marriage is about so much more than matching dish towels and monogrammed hand soap in the guest bathroom. I have begun to understand that the elements that actually make a marriage work can’t really be found in a store, but they sure need to be considered before taking that leap of faith.
What follows are the 5 things that SHOULD be on everyone’s wedding registry. Take a read and see if you agree, then add some you think I may have left off.
