Why We Read Ask APW

Han: I started reading A Practical Wedding when I was planning my own wedding back in 2012, but the relationship advice from Ask APW spans the whole range of life, from pre-engagement to post-marriage. Team Practical takes on all the things that we're taught we aren't supposed to talk about: the costs of weddings (and attending them), difficult family dynamics, handling queer identities in a heteronormative social contract, navigating the hard questions that come with a marriage (finances, children, emotional labor), and beyond. They also have a fabulous interactive commenting community who are always willing to share their stories and experiences, their support and advice, and their righteous anger when needed.
