I was married three times before
I was seven years old.
My older brother Gary performed the ceremonies
in our basement. Gary was good at entertaining
the family and neighborhood kids with his creative
ideas. Since I was the youngest boy in our group,
I was often on the receiving end of his creativity.
What I remember most about those weddings is

Puberty hit me late. I was still afraid of
the opposite sex when I was fifteen and yet
I prayed every night for the girl I would marry.
I asked God to help her do well in school and

evening socializing with people who don't have
any eligible daughters."

Years passed. I was twenty-six and my friends
were getting nervous about my prospects. They
kept lining up blind dates for me. Many of these
dates were fiascos and they were interfering
with my social life. Hence, I made up a few
rules about blind dates.
1. No dates recommended by my mother (moms
don't understand the sex appeal factor).
2. No dates recommended by a female (they're
too easy on each other).
3. No dates recommended by a single guy friend
(if she's so awesome, how come he hasn't asked
In three simple steps, I eliminated ninety
percent of all my blind dates, including one
recommended by my old friend Karen. She called
one evening to tell me that she had become good
friends with a beautiful girl who reminded her
of me. She said she knew we would hit it off.
