While brides are focused on choosing a wedding gown, picking flowers, finding the perfect music and planning a perfect reception, grooms are busy planning a fantastic honeymoon that they will never forget.

Neither one wants to take away from the bliss of planning their wedding and future together by discussing and making arrangements for ending their marriage.
