Alright, Calling all guys! ...my fiance and I have been engaged for two years. I've been looking into all the details of planning the wedding and discussing costs with my guy. Whenever this occurs he pretty much tunes me out or so it seems. His parents have passed away and mine have agreed to help, but whenever I bring up how we're gonna pay for this or that he avoids it like the effin plague! Am I supposed to just assume all the costs are on me or is this his way of avoiding actually getting married? I'm getting pretty p*ssed and seriously if this is how its gonna be, he can take the ring and shove it where the sun doesn't shine.

I don't know where this stupid custom started but traditionally the father of the bride is supposed to cover the cost of the wedding and pay for everything. It seems like a stupid tradition to me because I don't know many men who can afford to swing the entire cost of a wedding by themselves. Pretty sure it isn't done that way much anymore, but I know its the traditional way.
My guess is that he doesn't want an extravagant wedding, he doesn't care about the wedding ceremony itself. A lot of guys are like that. The wedding is for the bride and often, the groom doesn't want any part of the stress associated with it. That's why the bride will search for months to find that perfect wedding dress and pay thousands for it, while the groom will just rent a tux.
We don't CARE about the wedding itself. We don't give a rat's ass about it. We do it to humor you. Most of us would just as fine get married by a local municipal judge. The ceremony itself is totally meaningless to us. It's all about YOU.2
