I have had the privilege and pleasure of representing some amazing people over the last 21 years who just could not make it work. Some really hardworking, big-hearted, intelligent, successful and beautiful people (inside and out) have been my clients.
We all hope for the best when we get married, imagining that we will still be head over heels, 40 years down the line. And even though for some of us, inevitably that will not be true, we all benefit from believing it is.

Autumn's dramatic pink and purple sunset skies and naturally golden foliage make an outdoor wedding absolutely magical, and it also happens to be the most economical season in which to say 'I Do' -- especially if you venture outside the big city.
Here are a few things I have observed over the last 20 years that you might consider before you say, 'I do,' to help you stay the hell out of my office. I suggest you give the following some thought before you wander blissfully down the aisle in your $15,000 wedding dress.
Isn't your marriage more important than the wedding? Now would be a fantastic time to keep a firm hold on perspective. Make sure that appreciation of the memory is mutual by reaching agreement about your marriage ceremony in general.
