Thinking about getting married?

Well, here’s something people don’t tell you: Prepare to say goodbye to many of the foods you like.

Oh, it won’t happen overnight. And nobody is saying your spouse-to-be is a bad person. It’s just that shopping for yourself is different from shopping for two, to say nothing of having your special someone take over most of the food-buying chores.

Of course, nothing says you can’t continue to buy and eat things you enjoy. But in the real world, a married couple’s grocery choices inevitably gravitate toward consensus.

So when you wake up one day and realize you haven’t had ketchup-covered cottage cheese or cold sauerkraut in ages, just remember.

I warned you.
