I think the problem is people get way too caught up in flashy, fancy weddings, and whats "easily" spent is immaterial - you've got a guy willing to go way out on a limb to show his girl he'll do anything, and you've got a woman desperate to show how "together" her life is - bang, 30k on a wedding when they make 50k/yr together.  I've seen it.  Personally I made money on my wedding (love asians giving money rather than useless gifts) but I think we spent about 15k.  Even that was too much imo.

I think it's silly to say what is and is not too expensive. It's all relative. If you can easily spend 30k on a wedding, why not? It can be easier for one person to spend 30k on a wedding than it is for another person to spend 5k. The dollar figure is meaningless.

It must be the lawyer connection, because she's definitely not playboy material.

Compatibility with equipment like that isn't really an issue. Very little of the hardware has any relation to Sony anyway, so I wouldn't make that an issue. They're good computers though, so nothing wrong in getting one either. Personally, I'd lean towards a Thinkpad.

^^ This is correct.

Personally I think 12" is too small.  I went with the T61 because of the 14" screen rather than the 12".

All the divorce statistics mean is that there's a bunch of people getting married who shouldn't.  It also shows that today's society places alot more importance on career and independence than family.

In my mind, getting married means you make sacrifices of yourself, your choices, and your time to make the relationship work.  If you've chosen well the other person will too; and whatever the future brings, you'll face it together as a team.  That doesn't mean.. hey I want to do X, but if I do it I won't be able to stay with my SO.. oh well, guess it wasn't meant to be, BYE!

Too many people do not take marriage as an actual commitment, they take it as a convenience or something they were supposed to do.  Thats why the divorce statistics are what they are.  If you're not ready to make that sacrifice, of course you shouldn't get married - do yourself a favor! :)

I don't really have any specifics at the moment, I'm still a few months away from starting school so I'm mostly just reading all this crap about law school while trying to stay interested in work for another month.  I'm starting SMU in August.  Only semi-unique thing about me is that I'm a nontrad, worked for 10 years, software developer background with a computer science degree.
