When I tell people, “I live with my boyfriend three days a week,” I often get two reactions. 

1. “That must be-um– challenging.” 

2. “That sounds ideal!”  

The first reaction often comes from a place of concern.

Weddings in stuffy ballrooms with fancy buffets are overrated. Clinton and Rosemary knew that their wedding should be all about their love for each other … and for mini-sliders. That’s why they exchanged vows at their local White Castle in Louisville. Incidentally, Rosemary’s parents had their first date there, so it’s kind of like a family tradition.
