Larry

All right, we're going to one of my favorite movies of all times for today's quote from The Princess Bride, feel like you'll know what it is now, which is what brings us together today. Marriage, that blessing arrangement that Dwayne within a Dwayne and we love to love will follow you forever. Pleasure, your love. All right, Andrew, one of us. That means getting married in the next couple of days. I was wanting to know how the wedding process is going. You get married, you get engaged. And then all of a sudden you got to plan an event. You're a planner, your wife's got a great eye. How's it been? How's the house planning a wedding these days?


Andrew Keller

She's playing 99% of it. I focused more on the house. She plans events for work. She's really good at that she probably be a successful wedding planner if she wanted to work on weekends. But she doesn't. It's kind of nice that it's not in state. So people, there's only so much we can do. But everyone keep the word close to it. And everyone's like, oh, how's it going? Are you stressed out? I bet you can't wait for it to be over. And we're like, well, everything's already planned. We're just going to show up. So it's nice if there's not a last second crunch to it. Did you plan your wedding?


Larry

I'm gonna guess No, no. That was my question. Like, do you get deviled into the details about flowers and food? Like how deep into the weeds? Do you go on that stuff?


Andrew Keller

I picked all the food. We're not gonna have flowers. I mean, it's pretty simple.


Larry

What about like dealing with in laws in your family house dealing with family?


Andrew Keller

I mean, that's been that's been fine, too. It's more of like, we tell them, hey, you need to show up here at this time. And they say okay, and then that's fine. I mean, the hardest thing was trying to plan during a pandemic we started planning in June, just took a wild guess that hopefully things were going to be available for us to do this. And it was a it was a gamble. And it looks like it's gonna pay off New Orleans, as we record is going to go into tier three tomorrow, which is 75% capacity indoors.


Larry

So no curveballs a you married the woman of your dreams. You say you're gonna get married, and it just goes as smooth as can be.


Andrew Keller

I mean, yeah, I mean, big picture. I think so. I don't know. There hasn't been anything real tear. I mean, obviously, stuff is gonna come up. Like we had a venue we wanted, it didn't work out. They had legal language. That didn't make sense. But I mean, I think a lot of people get kind of into details on weddings. And maybe in a couple of weeks, I can speak as an expert as being someone that's married. I can't really yet but I feel like I was working at William Sonoma in 2006. And this couple came in to register for their wedding and they were given the gun and say are you scan these things and automatically plan for you? They are arguing. He laughed, and she finished. And I saw her at the grocery store. About two weeks later, I was like, Hey, I remember you from William Sonoma. How's your wedding planning going? She's like, we broke up. So I feel like weddings can also be a thing that stress you out.


Larry

But it is stupid. I mean, Well, in that case, it was good, right? They're arguing over plates. And so that said, hey, maybe you guys shouldn't be together. But it's sort of trivial that you're arguing over plates, like, life is so intense. And then you get together like, Oh, I like these plates. Oh, I like these plates. And it causes an argument. I was there. I know what I know.


Andrew Keller

I think that argument is of a thinly veiled argument about something else. I don't think it's about the plates. I think it's something else. So I feel like if you're fighting about stuff that you wouldn't fight with your friends about, then maybe like there's something else there that's bubbling underneath, even from back to the quote from Princess Bride. This is a this is a union. She's not even going to marry the guy. She's standing at the altar with.


Larry

reason I brought this coladas because I'm in the process of closing on a house. And it's this nether region like it is for engagement, right? you propose to somebody and then like you it almost took me a year to get married. You think you're gonna buy a house and then you got to wait 30 days with all the twists and turns. Before we buy a house in this time. I was thinking like, what is this time in like, It's exactly like the engagement. You just won some point during the game. You're like, man, I just wish I was married and all this stuff was


Andrew Keller

over. all your stuff was moved in and yeah, everything was covered all your cardboard. Yeah, I mean, I guess it is similar. I think also because I'm getting married later in life, especially for being from the south, both my siblings got married at 25, I'll be 38. So I think there's like, I know what I'm getting into some of that thought about just in marriage in general, kind of reflecting on my parents got married at 21, my siblings got married at 25. And that worked out well for all three of them. But for me, I don't think I was ready to get married at that time. I think, for marriage, you need to be happy with who you are. You need to fight the you to love yourself, which is like kind of cheesy, but like, know what you want in life. And don't look for a spouse or a partner to make you happy. Because I did that for years. If I've done this job before, I was like, if I made this much money, or if I got this promotion, I'd be happy. And I hit those milestones and wasn't. Or if I get the perfect partner, then I'll be happy. And I wasn't. So it took me figuring out what I wanted from life. And then you can partner up with someone and you don't argue over the plates before the wedding. Also,


Larry

do you mentioned about your brother your family members got married young? I bet they're all really going to appreciate this wedding? Because it's been a long time since there's been one in the family. Yeah,


Andrew Keller

I mean, it has been a while since my sister got married, I don't know, 1516 years ago. So I would want I would point out that getting married at 25 is old for the South. I remember I was 19. I was like, why are they still not married yet? This is crazy. I thought I was going to be married with five kids and have an 8000 square foot house. I don't want any of those things now. So it's just goes to show that you kind of grow into who you are. How old are you when you got married? I


Larry

don't remember I was 30.


Andrew Keller

Oh, were you? Were you happy with who you were? Did you find a partner and you grew together? Did you guys have to figure stuff out?


Larry

Oh, that's I mean, I don't know anybody that is like, well, I guess you if you marry because you think someone's gonna change to your perception of what you want them to be. You're screwed. Yeah. But you have to marry someone knowing that they will change. Like you. That's there's just no way that you can go through. You're just going to change people. Hopefully you change kind of connectedly as it goes, though.


Andrew Keller

Yeah, hopefully you grow together, I see what you're saying, like, I'm going to be a different person in one month, I'm also going to be a different person in five years. So like people will change and it's just like, are you going to be able to cooperate or grow with a person versus grow apart from them,


Larry

but you just can't Will someone to change in the way you want them to? I mean, I the number of marriages where I talked to people who were like maybe teetering on divorce or got divorced. And like, I always thought they would eventually do this. And I'm like, you got married, hoping they would become this?


Andrew Keller

Yeah. I remember talking to someone in college. And she was like, well, we're gonna get married, so things will get better. And if it doesn't work out after that, like we'll have a kid and that'll fix it. And I was like, Are you serious? They're divorced. Now. They're, they're divorced. They have never divorced family.


Larry

It is a I mean, I can't even remember my wedding day. Barely. Yes. But there's just all those decisions, you know, and I think you guys are mostly doing it on yourself. So you don't have to have all your in laws kind of sniping in and having their opinions and it's just cool. People have had their opinions. And we say no.


Andrew Keller

I know my parents listened to this show, but my dad was like, hey, should we invite this person as a no end of it?


Larry

But that's another good thing about like, you mentioned, like you're a little bit older. You're not like oh, you know, this my wedding? I'm done. No. Yeah.


Andrew Keller
