Cushla and myself are now engaged. Actually we've been engaged for some time but hadn't actually gotten around to actually telling anybody. Since we bought rings a week ago we felt we'd better own up to it now. So there you are, we're engaged. No idea when we're going to hold the weeding or anything like that (well, Cushla knows what she wants to wear, and we're thinking about an evening ceremony on the beach with a bonfire, but nothing actually firm).
For those who want more details, imagine the circumstances surrounding jdub's engagement and then reverse everything. Yes, that does meant that she proposed to me. It also means that our families only knew after the fact and that it wasn't done on a beach. It also wasn't a complete surprise.
It did take us a while to figure out if we were serious or not (hence not telling anyone). We are serious about each other, we're just not that serious about marriage as an institution. At least not the traditional marriage thing.
