    Trick question: Wedding or Texas Tech game

    My wife is in a wedding at 4:00 on the day of the Iowa State vs Texas Tech game. I was pulling for an early game but that is not the case.

    My wife said I don't have to go to the wedding. Is she testing me?

    I know a lot of you will say I should go to the game. However, I think it may be wise to not go to the game... However, I may still tailgate and go to the wedding happier than I am at most weddings. This may also backfire as I may need to go to the bathroom more often...

    Cones is right, this is a test. That said, you can always fail a test and make up for it with some extra credit later on. ISU vs TT 2012 happens just once, your wife is around for the rest of your life.

    Re: Trick question: Wedding or Texas Tech game

    Honestly, it depends on the type of relationship you have with her. For example, if my wife told me I didn't have to go to the wedding, she'd mean it and I wouldn't be in the dog house. But for some other ladies I was dating, that would be a big-time no-no, regardless of what she actually said.

    I'd say go to the game, but do something extra special to make it up to her.

    How long have you been married? If its only been a short time, go to the game. Show to her that if she says you can go to the game you will. Basically teach her early in you marriage.

    If you have been married for awhile now, go to the game. You should have her already trained to know if she gives you an out, your going to take it.

    Where is the wedding located? If it's a 4pm wedding, the ceremony should be done in an hour. You can drive separately from your wife and either skip the reception or cut out after half an hour. If you are close to Ames, you can make both.

    Where is the wedding? Could you tailgate, wedding it up, and go to the majority of the game?

    Re: Trick question: Wedding or Texas Tech game

    You have a ticket to the game, your wife said you can go to the game, and you are questioning it?

    Not impressed.

    Go to the game. She isn't gonna divorce you and already gave you permission.

    Good question:

    The bride is my wife's co-teacher. The bride is my wife's closest friend that she teach's with.

    We have been married three years.

    Re: Trick question: Wedding or Texas Tech game

    Don't go to the wedding. Even if she was testing you, she'll learn to say what she means.


    I have to go to a wedding that day, but they are good friends and they tried to schedule it on a bye week but did it before the Big 12 re-did the schedules.

    Now is the time to teach her to say what she means. It isn't a mind trick and you are turning it into one.

    Lots of bad advice here. Go to the wedding. You are married to her, not Coach Rhoads.
