There is no time. Or, when there is time, your back is killing you from being a Baby Sherpa or child wrangler. Sex? Let's fill the tub with hot water for a good soak and then we can talk about it. Except, oops, no, you're asleep.
The funny thing about weddings is that brides, grooms and families want them to be "perfect." They tell DJ's not to play certain songs and they also beg family members not to embarrass themselves.
