Mawwaige. Mawwaige is what bwings is together today.
So today’s wedding brings to mind thoughts of romance in fiction. Sometimes it feels like a necessity, like the romantic subplot is mandatory. At the very least, it seems like audiences have come to expect it.
So so what do you do? I’ve always felt that romances aren’t necessary. When they come in, it needs to be natural. I feel like too often they’re shoveled in and it’s done to fill a quota. But you know, when it’s done right, like my friends Paloma and Bryce, it’s a beautiful thing.
Okay, so writing advice. Remember that friendship and love are intertwined. If you can’t imagine the couple you’re ready AFTER the wedding, you’re putting them together for the wrong reasons. Make sure you can see them doing the day to day, mundane things, because while grand gestures are fine, marriages are built on the everyday things.
