Before They Wed

Last Thursday I was glued to my TV to watch the wedding of the year.  If you're a Big Bang Theory enthusiast like I am, you were delighted to share in the wedded bliss of Sheldon and Amy or, as Penny used to call them, Shamy.  If you've followed them from their first date on the last episode of season 3 engineered by Howard and Raj, you've seen their progression as two socially awkward people to two of your favorite people who have grown to love each other.

But enough about Sheldon and Amy.

I thought it would be fun to use this week to chronicle the life cycle of a relationship from dating to engagement to the BIG DAY. Reading romance books is a guarantee that boy meets girl, boy feels a connection like no other to girl and girl feels the same, yet something from boy's or girl's past keeps them resistant to the undeniable chemistry and lightning bolt kisses.  However fate intervenes and love finds a way!

It's why so many of us tune into the Hallmark Channel's movies on a regular basis.
