Man!!! I tell you what bees, the tension is running high in my household! Is it normal for us to be bickering this much before the wedding? We are not usually a couple that fights..like we NEVER fight, and we have been fighting about stupid things lately. He’s being whiney, I’m being whiney, etc. Along with the wedding planning, we are also building a house, involved in each of our best friend’s weddings and his brother’s wedding who all get married the month before we do, so obviously there is a lot going on, but man we are bitching! Then to top it off, I have taken away the, ummm…. ehhh, “nightly fun” if you will, so our wedding night will be new and exciting! So that may have something to do with it 🙂 Any advice is much appreciated!! Thanks bees!

Wedding planning is STRESSFUL and this can definitely take it’s toll on your relationship. Plan something fun, like a date night out or do something you’ve never done before,
And, if you are taking away the “nightly fun” then prepare to deal with a whiney-hiney FI. Mine would be one cranky pants! Hang in there!

It sounds like you two have a lot on your plate right now. I agree with Legallyblondiebride. You two should set aside a nice, relaxing date night.

I think removing the sex from your relationship is a bad idea. I dont think it will make it more exciting. He may end up too bitter and it puts so much pressure on the wedding night. Dr. Laura (who I rarely agree with) said something I will never forget.
A woman needs to feel loved to have sex
A man needs to have sex to feel loved
I will almost guarantee that your ‘issues’ are steming from the lack of sex.

We didn’t give up sex and the last couple of months were still brutal. Around Christmas, we had a few nights of parties and the like where the wedding wasn’t the focus and it was SO HELPFUL. Get out and do something non-wedding centric!
Immediately after the wedding, things went totally back to normal and we are blissfuly again 🙂

@MrsTimmy: Ah, Dr. Laura. I also agree with that statement — I guess even a broken watch is right twice a day!
My FI is out of town so I THOUGHT that would make things better for me as I work on DIY projects and spread craft crap everywhere without him bothering me. Turns out, the tension I’m feeling has skyrocketed without him! Headaches, stiff shoulders, trouble sleeping …
I bet it’s because I’m not getting any. For serious.

@Mrs.DsBeeloved: Oh yeah, sexual deprivation will do that every time. What on earth are you thinking??!! LOL. Just kidding. What you’re going through is just normal stress, most likely! Happens to everyone now and again.

@MrsTimmy: Oh man, if only!!! He’s in the military and got suckered into evaluating soldiers trying to get a prestigious badge-thing … so he’s currently staying barracks-style in a tent in the middle of BFE with a bunch of other dudes, like it’s basic training or something. At least I know he’s suffering more than I am … ?
He’ll be back next weekend and all will be well in the world again. And thankfully I’m getting dragged out of the house away from my DIY programs tonight. Good thing, because I was about to just throw them all in the fire!
