i think i am going to recommend the justice of the peace method to everyone i know...quick and easy.
so i am married now, and things haven't changed one bit. thank god! everyone i know said that the girl changes and everything goes to hell. 3 weeks in and nothing. maybe it has to do with expectations or something...people not getting what they want, i don't know.
no honeymoon, yet. we are saving up for a house.
i put a thread in about how to raise my credit. i want to get a cc, a walmart one or something, and pay that off on time, i know that will help, but i need to get about 20-50 pts higher for a better rate on the loan within 6-12 months. any ideas?
time to catch up on all the other threads, hope all has been good!

    Can you find a local jeweler w/in house financing that reports to a credit reporting agency? Buy just a LITTLE something for the new wifey for your first anniversary (it's coming - might as well get ready) or her birthday and making payments as a way to earn yourself some brownie points on the ol' FICO at the same time. Two birds, one stone. Might work.

    congrats on getting married! i went the notary route, similar to the justice of the peace, and i also found that not much changed in our every day lives (well, things changed that would've changed regardless of the marriage cert!).

    re: raising your credit score: sit down & take a look at your existing line of credit and your usage % of that line. you may be able to raise your score a bit by paying your debt down to 30%. just a thought...

    I got married at home, small service, spent $100 on some food and liquor and it was great! It has lasted 30 years and I am still on my honeymoon.

    Congrats...and don't listen to others , just keep in mind why you married in the first place that person never changes just gets older. I raisedmy score by paying on time and more than the minium on my cc. I also disputed some items on my credit report which was removed, I am not sure of your situation...good luck

    Congrats! Me and BF will be getting married here in a couple of years, and I'm sure we'll go the justice of the peace route... with a small ceremony where we say our own written vows! So exciting! Lux has a great idea up there, killing 2 birds with one stone! Good luck!

    "Broken Arrow Says: Hehe. Good luck! "

    BA, you're supposed to say 'congrats' to the groom and 'good luck' to the bride. age-old tradition.

    Congratulations and best wishes. As for people changing, we all change to a certain degree. If you and your new wife sat down and talked about goals and beliefs, you were prepared and you aren't in for big shock.

    I think Broken Arrow must have the giggles. Maybe for joy! Anyway BA has a lot of hehe's in many posts. Better than being glum!
