Engagement – a promise to marry, also the period of time between proposal and marriage.
Whether you’ve dated someone forever or been swept up in a whirlwind lust-affair, the act of asking another person to spend the rest of their life with you is taking a monumental leap of romantic faith!
My, seeing things through rose colored glasses, happily-ever-after self was thrilled when Prince William and Kate Middleton announced their engagement this week. I’ve got my fingers and toes crossed that they will share a long and happy life together. Marital bliss is an ongoing challenge for us regular people; I can’t imagine dealing with things under the microscope of the worldwide press.
I think it’s beyond wonderful that William gave Kate his mother’s ring and said, "It's my way of making sure my mother didn't miss out on today and the excitement and the fact we are going to spend the rest of our lives together."
I hope the media and we, the public, will allow them some space and privacy to experience their own HEA.
Have a great weekend!
