Wedding Update

So, for all those wondering, I am not getting married December 31, 2011, it was unrealistic to try and plan something for that time of year. It is wickedly expensive and I have to be honest I don’t want to spend the money on that and not spend on Christmas. So no wedding this year, maybe next year, I don’t know. I am thinking I want to get married on a Friday the 13th that is a good luck day in my family. There are three next year, January, March and July, one the year after in September. But how cool would that be, to get married on a Friday the 13th in 2013.
I have to be honest, I am in no hurry, and really at this age the only reason to get married is so that person can make medical decisions for you in case something happens. But I have to tell you, I already have Elizabeth for that slot, she knows not to pull the plug, and I want to live as long as I possibly can. So really, what other reason is there? I can see it when you are young, but I am not a 19 year old, impressionable young girl any longer. I am older, jaded and not very good at planning things. I am also ambivalent toward the whole thing. I mean seriously, what changes with a marriage certificate? I know, I would no longer be living in sin, however in bible days all you had to do was say we are married and boom you were married. Or you walked around a tent three times, I can’t remember exactly, but it was also easy to divorce. The man just said the words; I divorce you, and boom, divorced. Will I be no less committed without a piece of paper? Well I have been committed this whole time, so nothing changes there; a piece of paper will not change that.
I mean I have done the big, white dress, champagne fountain huge wedding thing, I don’t need it again. However if I do decide to get married, then there will be a wedding, a small one, with very close friends and family. It won’t be July, can you imagine? The heat in Texas, at a wedding, ugh. So if we miss the March window, it will not be until 2013.
