Other entries om the checklist that was ignored are:
- Make a firm decision as to how their finances will be handled after they're married. If they'd gone over that instead of his sitting around drinking beer with Train Man, Liz would know where she stands and be able to plan her future better.
- Make a mutual decision about who babysits. Anthony looks as if he's stupidly going to let Liz make life-altering decisions about his daughter without really caring what it does to her. If she resists Flapandhonk, too bad for her.
- Decide who takes care of their children in the event of their deaths. After all, they don't have a life insurance policy from God that says they'll be there for her formative years. One or both could die. They need to decide what will happen when the un-face-up-to-able happens.
I could go on but listing all the things these two woefully-unprepared people refuse to face would take a week.
