Wedding customs change over time. Today, a friend mentioned that she was attending a wedding where the bride and groom’s registry contained some stuff beyond furniture and kitchen stuff – specifically, a Wii. And the kicker? Someone bought it for them, while the spatula and knife set sat untouched. While I have to admit that a Wii on a wedding registry squicks me out a little bit, I’m not opposed to people asking for stuff other than household supplies. These days, many people live on their own – or even with their partner – before getting hitched. The point of registries used to be to help set a couple up in their new household, but that’s not as much of a need anymore. That said… is a Wii what you need to start your married life together?
