Q: Is it OK to register for gifts if you've been married before? I think it's tacky, but my brother wants to do it for his third wedding.

A: Just because the groom is marrying again doesn't mean he and his fiancé can't register. While gifts aren't required for a remarriage (in fact, they're not required for a first marriage, although they are customary), a lot of guests will want to get the couple a present anyway. That's why registering helps. They may prefer to register at places like electronics and sporting-goods stores or a travel agency (for the honeymoon). But it's just as appropriate for them to register for china and crystal. It's totally up to the couple.
