Serenity Now

You know how when you get married it is supposed to be all about the happy couple? But for most people it becomes all about everyone else. Seems that each person has a strong need to insert their opinions and have things their way. Suddenly the wedding planning becomes very stressful and the day itself no longer resembles the couple's original dream.
Apparently having a baby can be that way too. Out of nowhere people outside the future parents have opinions and needs.
