Final Fridays with Cousin Mars – Just a Friend


Many of you between the ages of 30 and 45 remember the hit song from Biz Markie – Just a Friend. Although this was just a song, it was and is a topic that many newlywed couples are forced to tackle. In my opinion, too many people expect their significant other to morph into a different person after marriage. Simply put – some post wedding day expectations are unrealistic and possibly foolish. Males and females are guilty of having expectations that are destined to cause heartache. [Read more…]

Final Fridays with Cousin Mars: Wedding Registry Remix

After recently attending a Logitech product preview event, I thought...

I’ve already shared how to get your hubby-to-be more involved with wedding planning. The registry portion of wedding planning may actually be the toughest for some men nearing the altar to swallow (it can be soooo boring). Well, that is if it is being done the traditional way. The wedding registry selection already requires so much thought. What store(s)? Are the chosen stores accessible to most of the invited guests? Must we stick to the traditional items (i.e. pots, pans and sheets)? With the average age of people saying “I Do” rising, individuals preparing to jump the broom often possess many of the items typically placed on these registries. This post will share what many guys really want to put on The List. My next step is to petition Logitech to begin offering a wedding registry service…even if this service is only offered to me.

Final Friday with Cousin Mars: The Bachelor Party

Do you really want to know? Honestly, there are only three likely categories of a bachelor party.

1st. – A boring to mild night/weekend with several of his friends and possibly co-workers. This night may or may not include female entertainment. If it does include female entertainment, don’t worry — chances are that your set of tatas weren’t the only pair viewed prior to that night. But so what, didn’t he have cable television already anyway? Believe it or not, he has already compared yours to some celebrity…and guess what…He gave you the ring, right? [Read more…]

Final Fridays with Cousin Mars – Putting a Ring on It

The Ring Doesn't Mean a Thing...Or Does It? Cousin Mars shares his pov on engagement ring costs.

So, Beyonce said “If you liked it, then you should’ve put a ring on it.” S. Carter turned around and put an 18-carat ring on it. Well, my last name ain’t Carter and unfortunately I don’t currently have his money. However, Mr. Carter doesn’t have Mark Zuckerberg money and it has been reported that Mark spent under $2k for the engagement ring he purchased for Priscilla Chan. Clearly people have different ideas of what should be spent on an engagement ring. [Read more…]

Final Fridays with Cousin Mars – Husband Material

3 Signs a Man Is Ready

Is it after one year? Is it after he introduces you to mom? How about when he is comfortable enough to say “I love you” in the presence of his friends? Oh yeah…this one is good…what about after he gives you a key to his place? Having many close friends of the opposite sex, I’ve been amazed at the types of clues some women looked for to determine if their significant other was indeed ready for marriage. Being a dude that has been on more than just a few dates (____ READ HERE ____), I can tell you that none of the previously mentioned clues is enough to think that he is ready for that leap.
