Please help. I just got engaged on Saturday night and I find out today that the only date that my fiance's parents can throw our engagement party is on September 11. I was suppose to go to the game, but that idea is now shot. The party will start around 4:00 and the Marshall kickoff is at 3:30. I cannot believe that I am going to miss most of the game. The last time I missed a OSU game, they got worked by Ron Johnson & Minnesota at the Shoe in 2001. Is this not a kick in the balls, or what!?!
Tell her parents that you cannot attend because you've got a football game to watch. :biggrin:

I'm kind of in the same boat for Cincy, my cousin decided to have his wedding (mind you my cousin is a big Buckeye fan also) on the opener! At least the wedding isn't until later in the day though, kickoff is at noon right? I guess I'll be wearing headphones in the church.

Regardless I would have loved to have been at the shoe for that one.

Actually Matz I was thinking here. Tell them that you don't want that type of attention for a simple engagement, and give them a "thanks, but no thanks".

Good idea, but that is not going to fly. My fiance will know the real reason why and I won't win that battle. I'm am going to have to bite the bullet and sacrifice one game so that I can still go to the Wisky, PSU and scUM games.

They need to understand that there are more important things in your life such as OSU football. One of my girlfriends friends didn't realize this and tried to schedule her wedding on the day of the Cincy game. I had to make my girlfriend understand that nothing would keep me from at least watching the game on tv. The marriage won't last unless you are honest about things like this. Good luck anyway :p

I have a rugby match at 1 and then have to hall ass across town to the alumni club bar to see the game. I'm showing up there in boots (cleats), bloody and dirty and ready to drink.

Congratulations on the marriage. Sorry about the party.

matz, take it from me. I've been married three years, and had two major "arguments" with my wife in that time. The first was in the fall of 2001, when I attended eight home Buckeye games and one away game. The second was in the fall of 2002, when I attended eight home Buckeye games. By 2003, we got along great, because my wife now understands that OSU football is the second most important thing in my life - after her of course. I take my wife to one game a year, and the others are "guys only". I tell you no lie, if you don't put your foot down now, you'll never be able to. The engagement party can be on a Sunday afternoon, or a frickin' Tuesday night, for that matter. The home opener is the second greatest Buckeye game of the year, and the best home game every other year. Stand strong, or be faced with a life of missing Buckeye games.

What the hell is an engagement party? Never heard of such a thing and I just got married.

I was actually invited to a reception, no wedding, that same night starting at 7:00. I was going to go until I found out kickoff was scheduled for 3:30

She knows about my OSU obsession and she is pretty cool about Saturday and Sunday afternoons. I have already "put my foot down" in regards to football season. I usually go to most of the home games and I take her to maybe 1 game a year. The only problem here is that September 4 or 11 are the only dates that we can possibly throw this party. I definitely ruled out the home opener.
