Okay all you rogue males, you don’t want to be trapped by the ladies looking for marriage. This guy has you covered with some interesting advice so you can avoid having the life sucked out of you by some airhead or harpy out to trap you into marriage.

Best part: all the charts and illustrations so you really can visualize your bachelor strategies.

Time for me to round up some rogue males,

Wedding Photos for “Today”

Wedding Photography for Today
Greg Lewis
1980

Submitter: I’m making my way through the 700s at my mid-sized public library, and our photography section has been neglected for a long time. Amidst many books that are ridiculously out of date was this gem on wedding photography. Any time a title includes “modern,” “contemporary,” or “today” it immediately gives itself an auto-weed by date. The samples included are great examples of what my parents’ wedding photos look like. I think if any modern bride ended up with photographs like these she’d probably cry. The fashion and effects photo also make this one an easy one to remove from our collection.

Mary: I think I might have gone to college with some of these people or at least attended prom with guys that dressed in similar tuxes. Just say no.
