    Had to laugh this morning. Mrs has been telling me how her grandma is always giving her grief that we are "living in sin" because we don't have a piece of paper saying we aren't yet (they are very Catholic in parts of south america..)
    So she was talking to her on Skype and she started to have a wee dig again and Mrs tells her "look, Ryan and I want our kids to come to our wedding so once we have had a few kids, then we will get married"
    Think the poor old dear nearly fainted haha

    Its just an expensive piece of paper and free piss up for your mates and family at the end of the day.
    My kids were involved in the ceremony and loved it.

    My Grandfather is from Raro and i grew up travelling there yearly. Plan was to have a big wedding and give the extended family a reason to go there. After sending out the invites a month later when we had finalized our "budget" it was ticking over $30K (you always blow a budget out.) We uninvited everyone, let my brothers, old man and to be inlaws know what our plan was if they wanted to come along they were more than welcome. Done our Island wedding with close family for $12K. stress free, happy. Couldn't care less about others missing out. haha

    Well I was assuming (wrongly of course) that @stingray's "tomorrow" meant Saturday and therefore from the text earlier of "no fish" all the "not catching" was happening today. Confused well you will be soon. Us mere mortals must wait till the weekend to fish
