Not even at the party/reception following the wedding ceremony? Well, you're married now, so I guess some of the best benefits of dancing don't matter too much.

Let's play Family Feud. Name something people do at a wedding or wedding reception:
  • Drink
  • Eat
  • Dance
  • Kiss
  • Gossip
I can't believe you said that. Did your father not teach you the subtle art of romancing a lady? No wonder so many women choose to work instead of stay home to raise children and take care of their husbands. (I mean that in the context of cases where the husband's income is sufficient to meet the family's needs and objectives.)

I don't, but I'll wager that one hour's ballroom dancing every day is all the aerobic activity a person could really need. One'd still have to do some strength training to safely perform lifts, or be lifted/dipped. It's great fun and great exercise. As a plus, the training at ballroom carries over to less structured dancing that is popular in nightclubs and raves. Even when you travel and don't speak any of the native language, you can still dance with someone. Lastly, I can assure you dancing is a great "pick up" tool as it's about the most non-sexual romantic activity out there:
  • lots of body contact,
  • the activity keeps the blood flowing hot and puts a flush on the face making you and her look your best
  • dips, spins and lifts have a tremendous affect on her eyes and psyche
    • make them open wider, making it easier for you to see her pupils and look into her eyes (pupils respond involuntarily when a woman is attracted to you, pay attention to them)
    • makes her eyes roll up with excitement
    • builds her confidence in you as a strong man whom she can trust
  • you and your date are smiling the whole time,
  • mistakes and successes make for conversation (if you need that)
  • what woman doesn't adore a strong, fit man who can takes her to the dance floor, gives her undivided attention, exhibits control and restraint while making her look and feel graceful, poised, fun loving and, quite frankly, like a star at the center of the universe?
  • with all the fun she'll have had dancing with you, you don't need to ply her with liquor. Or is taking a sober lady home (or going to her place) for a nightcap a lost art?
  • men who dance can be more selective in choosing among the women who are interested in them because good dancers are more often than not good lovers and good spouses.

I've often found saying no to dancing makes women try even harder, old reverse psych. Act disinterested and they try to prove you wrong and that you should want them. They start paying for drinks and taking you home faster than you can say poutine.

that is a good policy. rational seems to come more naturally to some of us on this forum.

See post #35.

I didn't miss Glashütte. I know they make a very fine watch and I like their Sixties and Senator series watches. I hardly expected it to get many votes on here and I just wasn't going to buy that brand, so it didn't matter. Piaget and JLC aren't on the list for more or less the same reasons, although in JLC's case, it's the opposite -- I knew that's what I would buy my daughter, so it didn't matter. Unlike Tag, there was no uproar about any of these brands, yet IMO each is far more deserving than Tag.

I don't like the Mille watches I've seen, which admittedly number about two. Even so, with but a casual glance at either I was no closer to knowing the time of day than I was before I looked at them. So that's why Mille's not there. I suspect, however, a Mille might be a novel watch to own just for the sake of owning it. I just figure folks that wear them, and take time to decipher the time they report, have fewer temporal demands than I.

I did put Rolex and Omega on the list mainly as because I knew the populists would have a conniption if I didn't. I like and own watches from both those companies, so there was a off chance I'd buy one of those, though it wasn't likely since both my sons have on various occasions worn mine. Buying them either, IMO, wouldn't seem so special to them since they are well habituated to just wearing mine. Indeed, my oldest son has all but claimed my Submariner as his own; he went off to college hundreds of miles away with it on. He didn't ask me for it, but I didn't demand it back either. Once I give him the Royal Oak, perhaps I'll see my Submariner more often. My youngest son alternates between my other Rolex and an Omega and it'll be quite a while before he's up for a watch; have to get him a car before I get him a watch.

As for my last son, I don't know what I'll get him when the time comes. I suspect what I decide will be based on his personality and tastes and whether he specifically asks for something in particular as my daughter did.

All the best.
