The full alt.newlywed FAQ is available at
The maintainer (Vicky Larmour) will post a text version of the FAQ
to alt.newlywed approximately once per month, and this mini-FAQ
once per week.
1. What is alt.newlywed?
Alt.newlywed is a forum for discussing issues that are common to newly
married couples. Potential issues of interest mentioned when the group
was configured on May 6, 1996, include name changes, finances,
combining of households, and compromises.
2. What topics belong on alt.newlywed?
Topics should generally be related to the unique experiences that
come with the early years of marriage. There also is a legitimate and
valued element of "staying in touch" with other graduates from the
wedding newsgroups. Alt.newlywed is not a wedding planning group, and
wedding or honeymoon planning questions do not belong here.
Alt.newlywed is also not a general marriage support group; people looking
for support for marriage problems should turn to alt.support.marriage.
Pregnancy, babies and infertility are topics that inevitably crop up
when a group of newlyweds get together! Threads that are solely
about these and related issues should be labelled (eg by putting [Preg] in
the Subject: header) so that people who are not interested can skip over
3. Is advertising allowed on alt.newlywed?
Messages advertising products or services are not permitted on
alt.newlywed. Products or services may be promoted only in
(a) recommendations in response to a specific inquiry and
(b) the poster's .sig file.
Using the newsgroup as a source of mailing list names for unsolicited
commercial or political e-mail messages is also forbidden.
