I thought this article from Modern Mom, “23 Ways to Fight Fair with Your Husband” by Tina B. Tessina, Ph.D., was one of the most useful on the topic I have ever read. I’ve probably violated every one of these rules at one time or another, and it is with that tarnished history that I say these are good fighting rules to live by.

Some years ago my sister asked me to throw a bridal shower for her. I was clueless. I knew she and her friends weren’t going to have much fun playing bridal bingo or trying to remember 20 objects on a tray (you’ve done that one, right?), so I copped out and we just had lunch. Nice, but not only was it lacking in panache, we missed out on a crucial bonding opportunity by skipping the bridal shower games.

What do you do after your green wedding? Green honeymoon, of course. Love, Honor, Leave No Carbon Footprint from the New York Times talks about the popularity of eco-friendly honeymoons. The article discusses options like travel with volunteering opportunities, “wwoofing” (World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms), travel to eco-destinations (some of which are quite luxurious) and of course (very green!) local honeymooning. California couples are especially fortunate in this regard, as there are many honeymoon destinations especially geared to the eco-traveler, such as the Historic Sand Rock Farm, Bear Flag Farm, or Shambhala Ranch.
