My last days as a free man!!!

Posted on: July 8, 2008 5:24 pm

Well I have only a few days of freedom left.  After 12 years in a relationship, I am finally getting married.  This coming Sunday, 7/13, is my last day of freedom.  And you know what, I couldn't be happier.  I actually landed the girl of my dreams. 

I am not sure how this is going to impact my career as a sports poster on the boards, but time will only tell.  For all the baseball fans out there you know I am crazy in LOVE if I am not watching the All-Star game and Homerun Derby because of my honeymoon.  I so wanted to watch it this year, but alast I will be on the beach in Bermuda. 

All I have to say is that I cannot wait till Sunday.  Just wanted all to know that I will be off the boards for a while, but hopefully not too long.

Wish me luck.

My last days as a free man!!!


Normally I'd say that marriage has much more challenges than we can reasonably expect in regards to things like health, career, problem relatives, and relocating. This has certainly been the case in my 7.5 years. However, since you've been together for quite some time - you've probably been thru some crisis situations already.

Marriage is beneficial in many ways and is the ultimate emotional commitment. Also overlooked are basic things like property agreements, social insurance, and other benefit-related issues (speaking as a bureaucrat).

I think you will find that making it "official" is the best decision for both of you in the long haul.

Have a great time in Bermuda!

My last days as a free man!!!

Thanks for the kind words and insight into married life. I joke about the last days as a free man because I wouldn't have it any other way. She is the best and I can't wait. Sports and games happen, but marriage is real life. I actually learned that from my fiance. As sacrilegious as this may sound, there ARE more important things than sports.

My last days as a free man!!!

Congrats Adam.  For myself, the day I got married was the happiest day of my life.  All my friends & Family attended my wedding for one reason - to be with my wife & I, to celebrate our new beginning life together.   Remember these words:  I am sorry - even if you were not wrong.   Fights will happen but it is how you make up that will determine if you your marriage will last.  My wife and I can not stay mad or upset for more than 24 hours - that is a rule for us.  It is silly to just be upset over most things for any period of time.

As for posting, I used to hang out posting on different sites - Facebook or MySpace.  My wife thought it was a waste of time.  Then I started to post on Sportsline.  It seems sports and posting on sports site seem less of a threat to her.  Fantasy baseball and/or Fantasy Football seem to take a lot of time but it some thing I enjoy. 

I admit I have missed a few World Series in October and November since I was traveling in Europe or foreign country but I did not mind much.   I never let sports take away from doing things with my wife.  You seem to have  a similar approach which is good for your relationship.  Good luck and have a great honeymoon.
