So I guess if you haven't seen from over on facebook... Rich and I are now engaged!

Hah. It's a weird feeling because I'm actually not a fan of marriage in general -- in particular, the social expectations and stupid preconceived notions that go hand-in-hand with being "of marriageable age". (Though obviously on a personal/individual level, I completely understand the desire to announce one's love and commitment to your partner before your community.) This is something we've talked about at length... even before we started dating.

But since people tend to ask about "The Proposal"... there really wasn't one. For which I'm super thankful as I'm clearly not a fan of stereotypical rites/traditions. I'm mostly telling people that he joked about the idea until I got so used to it that I finally asked him when we were going to actually do the deed. Mostly that's true! But I do tend to leave out the pragmatism which underlies the motivation to marry: namely, various legal benefits wrt kids and healthcare.

Still, I'm very happy about it, despite my conflicting feelings on the institution of marriage. I'm also REALLY looking forward to the party! If you know me at all, you know I love a good party!

And I agree: If I ever get married the part I'll be most excited about is planning a giant party and drinking and dancing! XD
