The Window Dressing: Why Eloping Is Often a Better Option

Here’s my latest piece for the March/April issue of Industry Magazine, an exploration of the wisdom of scaling back our expectations for our wedding day—in our efforts to shore them up for the marriage itself.

The Window Treatment by Emily Johnson

“Gen X also lived through the high point of divorce in the boomer generation—our parents—and we paid for it, emotionally. Now we hold back from unrealistic expectations, which elaborate weddings feed, because we saw the effects of the crash and burn—the good old days confined to 5 x 7 sepia-toned prints of us in tall socks—both parents smiling—that we treasure but cannot remember distinctly.”

    What a great web log. I spend hours on the net reading blogs, about tons of various subjects. I have to first of all give praise to whoever created your theme and second of all to you for writing what i can only describe as an fabulous article. I honestly believe there is a skill to writing articles that only very few posses and honestly you got it. The combining of demonstrative and upper-class content is by all odds super rare with the astronomic amount of blogs on the cyberspace.

    everything I have read so far has been interesting and confirmed by my own personal experience. I wonder if you might have anything to say about the implications of a well dressed vaguely gay doll called Mr Perfect who says 16 different things along the lines of ” Goodness no, that dress does not make you look fat”etc etc. Also the very common situation of middle age men losing their jobs forever while their wives suddenly become the only source of income. This role reversal is now the case of most of my friends.
    Love to your mom.
