This episode marks the long awaited, post-camp return to Marry Me but this return marks a few changes. For the time being, due to scheduling issues the show will be released on a monthly basis. In addition to this, we welcome a new voice to the show. Cullen is tucked away in Nicaragua so we’ll be joined by the delightful Connor Gwin until he returns. In this episode the gang focuses on the purpose of dowry’s and what relevance (if any) they serve today. This episode also features guest Emily Perper.
In this episode Cullen, Kevin, Susan and an articulate entity known only as “Ghost” sit down, not to answer questions, but to discuss Kevin’s very first wedding experience. We learn that a man, educated by television, has very little knowledge of wedding procedures and that even the Editor-In-Chief of a humor magazine has problems with sex jokes.
In this episode Cullen, Kevin and Susan sit down with feminist, Kaity O’Reilly to discuss feminism and it’s relation to marriage. We find out how marriage relegates traditional gender roles and debate as to whether or not it still has that effect. Kevin and Cullen talk about fishing and more, all in this week’s episode of Marry Me!
In this episode Cullen, Kevin and Susan try to figure out why someone would go dutch on an engagement ring and should they? THEN they spend about ten minutes getting down to the nitty gritty of how being a feminist interferes with getting married… well they try to, until Cullen has to run off to an acapella practice, but don’t worry, they’ll continue the discussion soon.
In this episode Cullen, Kevin and Susan take an in depth look at engagements, determining the effectivness of long term engagements, and attempting to answer the timeless question of how to know when you’re actually ready to get married. In this episode they are joined by special guests Emma Wright (Cullen’s girlfriend) and Richard Cole who stops by to discuss his own engagement over twenty years ago.
In this week’s episode Cullen, Kevin and Susan discuss fall weddings as Kevin finds himself invited to one. The three struggle to answer the question of how to cope with a “new roommate” of the opposite gender (specifically: a spouse) who enjoys potty humor and wonder what it takes to make the sudden leap into living together once married.
In this week’s episode Cullen, Kevin and Susan discuss the effects of the government shutdown on weddings/marriages. Then contemplate the ethical intricacies of getting married for the right reasons, be it love or some sort of “get rich quick” scheme.
In this week’s episode Cullen, Kevin and Susan discuss the intricacies of hipster weddings. The boys plan their dream weddings and settle the dilema of how to fight wedding mania (Marriage Mania?) when you’re not quite ready to take the leap. Through the most destructive means they tackle the Wedding Industrial Complex, crashing wedding, and the peak of destruction: The end of the world.
In this week’s episode Cullen, Kevin and Susan discuss the importance of overcoming their intimacy issues via llamas. Then they get down to brass tax and discuss whether or not there is a right age to get married and what to do when your partner doesn’t meet all your vague needs.
As some of you may have noticed there was a lack of posts to the site last week. This is because I (Kevin) was busy working at a summer camp with fellow Annual Staffer Cullen Dolson. Throughout the week the two of us would steadily shout “Marry Me!” following interactions with our incredible staff chaplain Susan Daughtry.
The joke steadily evolved into a concept that was quickly fleshed out and now we would like present you with the latest Annual podcasting venture:
Marry Me!Marriage advice!*
*Do not take advice.
A Podcast featuring The Annual’s Editor-in-Cheif Kevin Cole, Writer Cullen Dolson and their favorite married person in the world/Ordained Priest Susan Daughtry. With their powers combined the three will dish out the most helpful marriage advice known to man!
However, the show can’t get off the ground until we have some questions to answer. So please, if you are married or soon to be married, please send your questions to:
