Bad move dude. You just violated one of your own rules. Years ago you advised a bunch of us in Nashville, TN at a Dan Kennedy conference to never marry and to stay single so the woman cant get everything. Now you stand a chance to lose half of what you got. Im sure you signed a pre nup of some sort.

He purposefully didn't want "forsaking all others" included in the vows? What is the point of getting married? Did he ask Shannon to sign a prenup as well? I don't know why I am surprised. Shannon dear, if you didn't leave him after his first "indiscretion" and allowed him to keep his winkie attached, don't fret when it happens again.

I wish them well, and I just hope their relationship doesn't fall apart now that they are married.
