In the marriage melee most dads get forgotten. Sons are supposed to be mature and need no advice. But the truth is that before the wedding the son is as nervous as he was when he was giving his final exam. Except that he does not express his fears. Times have changed and men are more expressive than their older generations. They have also learnt to cope with the fears. While it is easier for the girls to have a good cry and get over with the overwhelming emotions the boys find it tough. But now dads are open to have chats with their sons. Most sons do ask their dads if the choice of girl is right at the time of engagement. So when the wedding date comes closer, the jitters get louder. If the father had reluctantly approved the bride, it is all the more critical for the dad-to son chat to take place. This seems to be the last chance to reconcile and speak about the fears.
Sons may be close to their mothers, but there a certain things that they prefer discussing with their dads or best friends. Fears range from various topics like sex, behavior on the first night, expectations from the bride and dealing with a difficult mother. If the son will still be living with his parents, he will have to discuss the protocol that needs to be adhered once the new bride enters the home. A lively chat will reduce the burden of the heart.
