During part of the class, we give the couples questions to write about separately and then discuss together as a couple. The last question:
Why do I want to marry him or her?
Eight years ago, Joe and I answered this question in beautiful betrothal letters that made both of us cry.
This year (we blame it on lack of sleep and a few glasses of red wine), we came up with some answers that we hoped we wouldn't see on couples' responses.
- Reminds me of my mother.
- Smells better than most men.
- Hot in the sack.
- For his money.
- Folds laundry with Prussian precision.
- Our Zodiac signs are compatible.
- Was the only one who said "Yes".
- I like his last name.
Feel free to add to our list in your comments; we shared this with our class at the end as a funny way to wrap-up and they thought it was so hilarious; we'll probably use it again.
