Many of the men in the stories say dismissive things about marriage and make excuses for not committing to their women, such as: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it," and, "Marriage is just a piece of paper."

Many of the women compare marriage to a fairytale where everyone lives happily ever after.
I understand both sides.

Like many of the reluctant grooms in these stories, I come from a broken home. When I was 9 and my sister was 5, our parents yelled at each other across the house constantly. They never physically hurt each other, but they did do damage. Once, Dad was so angry at Mom that he stormed into our playroom and kicked our toys around, breaking both of our favorite toy figurines: my sister's horse named Hacksaw and my cat named Murina. Right then and there, I promised God and myself that I would never subject my own children to their parents' unjust anger. Less than a year later, my parents were divorced.

Sadly, the way I kept that promise was to never have any children. Too late, I realized that was a mistake, and I regret it to this day.

Like many of the yearning brides in these stories, as a young girl I loved fairy tales, weddings, and fancy dresses. I didn't connect these three things until I collected these stories. In her fantasies, every little girl is a fairytale princess, someone who wears fancy dresses and dances with a charming and attentive prince. Like most brides and grooms, Scott and I danced together at our wedding dressed as Prince Charming and his princess. My parents put aside their differences and danced together there, too. It was like magic.
