HOW DO YOU SOLVE THIS WEDDING DILEMMA?
I was talking with a friend yesterday who's getting married... Her parents are "new school" and think that both sets of parents should split the cost of a wedding. However, her fiancee's parents have already had two daughters get married and paid for the entire wedding and were looking forward to not having expenses this time, other than the traditional rehearsal dinner.
She's upset because the groom's parents are far better off than her family, and could help if they wanted to... So what should she and her fiancee do?
I suggested just having a smaller wedding, one that her parents could pay for with the 50% they could throw in. One listener called in and suggested that the groom be the mediator here... after all, they are his parents. Someone else called in and said the adults should be adults, figure it out themselves, and present the kids with a budget... they don't need to know who's paying for what. Guess there are lots of ways to work it out...

HOW HONEST IS TOO HONEST?
An Odor-Eaters survey asked Americans if they would tell a colleague they smell. Here are the results:
·59% are uncomfortable telling a colleague they have B.O.
·20% would tell a colleague if he or she has bad breath
·12% would let a colleague know he or she has a stinky underarm
·9% would tell a colleague he or she has smelly feet
WE'RE GIVERS, NOT TAKERS!
According to a new survey by SunTrust Bank, 90% of Americans regularly donate to charity... and the average American donates 4.1% of their annual income. (If you make $50,000, that's just over $2,000 to charity.)
89% of people who give say they do it because, quote, "it's the right thing to do" or "because I want to help others". 26% say they donate "for the tax write-off". (You could say more than one answer... so there's some overlap there.)
