"Happy spouse, happy house". This way the onus is on both to take each other's happiness into account.
While we are talking marital advice, I don't think couples truly understand how devasting financially a divorce can be. I am not suggesting that everyone should enter marriage with a pessimistic attitude, but everyone should understand that if the marriage eventually does not work out, the financial devastation can be insurmountable. I know first hand how tough it can be. My first marriage didn't work and it killed me financially. Luckily I quickly found my soul mate and we have been together for 20 years. But, the financial pain took many years to recover from. And even now, am I fully recovered? I lost years of being able to "plan for the future" because I had to settle marital debts.
Sure, divorce comes with all kinds of pain: custody issues, mutual friends, families, not to mention the pain of ending a relationship that you had expected to last forever. However, most of that gets better with time and, usually, doesn't have lingering effects. However, the financial devastation may never truly go away.
I know that there are pre-marriage counseling classes that some couples take, but I don't know that they ever touch on the financial hardships that can come with a divorce.
"We want prenup" Of course, I don't necessarily mean that, but I think too many young couples go into something like marraige rather blindly. And since nearly 50% of all marriages end in divorce, the odds are pretty good that your young happy married life will likely come to an end at some point.

Is to marry someone that likes sports almost as much as you do. My wife likes hockey (college and NHL) and football (college and NFL). In fact, she will watch games even if I am not at home. It helps that she is a huge UM fan. She is more excited to watch all of the bowl games that are on tomorrow than I am!
Perhaps I just got lucky, though.

Of offense for Baylor with 3 minutes left in 3rd quarter. Yikes.

Lloyd coached when there were 11 teams in the conference. Now there are 14. Sure, two of them are Maryland and Rutgers, but even they have great position players from time to time.

A good portion of that OSU 10-1 record against Michigan was against a team that was very Purdue-like.

Is the man. Also turned Muskegon into a state high school football power. I believe there are great things ahead for him.

Your first point is incorrect. Only some of the regents/trustees at Michigan public universities are elected (for example, U of M and MSU). However, the trustees at GVSU, Ferris, and several others are appointed by the Gov.

|1 year 24 weeks ago||When Bo retired......||
When I first read that Bo was retiring after the 1990 Rose Bowl Game (1989 season) I got a little misty. I was in my Junior year and this announcement hit me out of nowhere. The funny thing is that if something like this happened today we would probably have a good idea well in advance of the actual announcment. But in that era, unless you were an "insider" you didn't know until you read it in print. Took my breath away.

The Sparties have been insufferable on the West Side the past few years.....
