    Yep ChefTalk fans, I am on my way to the alter in a couple short weeks. It is a very exciting time, and I am really looking forward to this event and the very awesome honeymoon we have planned. My fiance Colleen and I will be Greece (were my family is from) for about two weeks. So, if you don't see any posts from Nicko for awhile that is why. The big day by the way is September 30! Please feel free to post advice, comments, or whatever.

    ------------------
    Thanks,

    Nicko

    congratulations!

    been married for almost ten years now.
    best advice,
    1. always be boyfriend and girlfriend.
    2. respect each other.
    3. money isn't everything.
    4. don't base big decisions on emotion, take your time and look at all sides.
    5. hug and kiss each other hello, good bye, good night, in the kitchen, in the store, as often as possible.
    6. you are not alone, communicate.
    7. football is a game, not a way of life.
    8. shopping is an activity, not a way of life.
    9. have dinner together (if children involved, them too) at least 5 days a week.
    10. have fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Congradulations!

    I have learned to adore my guy's excentricities they make him who he is.

    Inside jokes only you know...and mentioning them amoung a group without others knowing.

    Learning from each other what is important.

    Learning when to shut up

    If you can't see them still call....stay connected.

    Fun gifts.....given randomly ie..a dozen various apples, cookies on a stick, squirt guns

    Learn how to give massages, what a great thing to give and get.

    Making out.....a lost art for many.

    Food/wine can be fun in other places than the kitchen.

    Nicko, congratulations! My best to you and Colleen. Is she a restaurant person?
    My advice: Always converse [​IMG] with your mate each day. Not about laundry, the kids, the yard, etc., but as friends.

    Best wishes, cookM

    Congratulations! Lucky you to be going to Greece this time of year. I spent a month there in June/July a while back, and it was pretty HOT. I loved the seashore (and the grilled fish with ouzo for dinner), Delphi, and the yaourti mi meli. Ahhhh. I'll second the good advice here about marriage preservation!

    WOW! Thanks for all the great words of wisdom. It is a pretty exciting time, and it also a very stressful time! However, when you are with the right person, it is all so much easier. It would seem that from everyone's advice there will be a lot of smooching going on. Hope I have time to get all of my ChefTalk responsibilities done. [​IMG]

    Congradulations! Marriage is great! Been there for 8+ years now. What I remember is that we took our vows before friends and God, that helps me work harder to meet my end of responsibilities and my wife feels the same way. Hang in there, it's a serious step but one of the most fulfilling in life.
    Have fun and smooches in Greece!

    It is funny that you say that Isabel, I never imagined myself married with kids either. I think that it is a scary thing for anyone, especially with today's rate of divorce. However, when you find the right one, there is no way you can let them go, and I have found the right one!

    Thanks everyone.

    Congratulations, Nicko!

    I just had my one year anniversary, and I'm just starting to get used to saying, "my husband". I never had more fun than on my wedding day, and I hope yours is as great.
