I am a strong proponent that it is more important to focus on the relationship than on the wedding. I am not saying that the wedding is not important just that the relationship is more important. I have seen brides that stress over the smallest details that guests never even appreciate. I have seen other couples spend money they do not have in order to impress others. Some people, such as recently reported Kim Kardashian, let the details of the wedding replace the satisfaction they should be getting from their relationship. I know I am using examples from weddings but people can use anything to divert their attention from relationships. For some it’s their money or their work that takes over their focus but regardless, the results are the same. In the end, neglecting a relationship will ultimately have an adverse impact on it.
An interesting dynamic of going to school and working from home is deciding how to dress. We are both free to live our lives in pajamas and to be in our work out clothes before, during, and after exercise. We are free to be ourselves without anyone looking to judge or criticize us. It’s a great life! Our clothes are clean and nicely folded; we are definitely not slobs. We have never compromised our hygiene simply because there is no one here to notice. However, in our situation, what is the dress code when there is none?
