When Miranda's friend Jeremy Fields, a reporter in London who is often flirtatious in their e-emails, visits New York Miranda is happy to put him up - however he proves more flirtatious with a local friend of hers who just decorated her apartment, and at the farewell party she throws for him even announces their upcoming wedding! The friends have mixed feelings being invited, three of them rather commandeered in various capacities. Miranda feels the invisible woman, 'in charge' of the self-explicative guest-book; Sam feels her Manhattan life is ending when she realizes she slept with a man she already had some 15 years ago; Carrie goes from a high when Mr. Big accepts to accompany her to the wedding to hear her requested occasional poem to a low when he declines signing the card with their wedding gift and leaves during her recitation for a business call; bridesmaid Charlotte is tickled pink she finally may choose herself a gorgeous dress and team up with eligible best man Martin ...

Marriage Is A Partnership
3 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Miranda is shocked when her decorator and a friend who was just visiting announce their engagement after knowing each other for only a few days. At the engagement party, Samantha snags a date for herself, and Miranda wonders if her apartment will bring good luck to everyone but her. At the wedding, Charlotte is serving as one of the bride's maids, and gets the sexiest dress she can to walk down the aisle. Her escort is a very handsome man and within a few hours they click as if they had gone out on several dates. Unfortunately, the man takes his father's side when Charlotte complains that the old man felt her up. Samantha is shocked to realize that she had already slept with her engagement party date. Miranda is stuck with the guest book and thinks she's invisible to all men. Carrie is asked to write and proclaim a poem for the bride and groom, and is hurt when Mr. Big walks out of the room to answer his phone during her reading. She is saddened with the fact that while some people can get married after 4 weeks she can't even get Mr. Big to sign a card with her.

Before I proceed with my review,here is Carrie's poem: His hello was the end of her endings Her laugh was their first step down the aisle His hand would be hers to hold forever His forever was as simple as her smile He said she was what was missing She said instantly she knew She was a question to be answered And his answer was "I do"

In this episode,the 4 women - Charlotte,Samantha,Miranda and Carrie - attend a wedding.We all know that women want to get married for the wrong reasons.And just like what Samantha stated," I don't understand why women are so obsessed with getting married? I mean married people just want to be single again, if you're single the world is your smorgasbord".Many women perceive marriage as the ultimate sign of love and it will give them perfect happiness.But in the end,50% of marriages in the United States end up in a divorce.Marriage requires a lot of hard work to succeed.It is more of a partnership rather than achieving happiness.
