I'll be getting married tomorrow 8/8/8.
« on: August 7, 2008, 04:59 PM »
I didn't want to make a big deal of this, so I waited until near the last possible moment, since I don't expect to be on SSG tonight or tomorrow. (but will be on over the weekend)

After 10+ years, I'm finally getting married to my fianceé.

For us, it's really nothing more than a legal ceremony. We're not doing anything big, just going to the Justice of the Peace. In reality the main reason for us choosing to get married now is that we're looking to buy a home and in order for her income to count towards me getting a VA (Veterans) loan, we have to be married.

We've already thought of ourselves as "married" for some years now and under current Pennsylvania law are considered "commonlaw married." This just puts a stamp on a piece of paper saying so.

Anyway, just figured I'd mention it, since I won't be on and when you folks start seeing me reference her as my wife, you'll know why.

The ceremony is at 8:30 am here in Pittsburgh. At 11:15 am we'll be taking our 3rd look at a property we pan on making a bid for as our house. Afterwards we'll take in lunch, then a movie, do some shopping, then dinner, then watch the Olympics on one TV and the Steeler game on the other TV. The honeymoon is postponed for now since we need to focus on getting the home first.

I know this isn't all "romantic," but remember, she feels the same way about this as I do. So, it's not just my opinion of the day.

Congrats Sal, but really you should've waited a week on saw Clone Wars after the ceremony  :P
My wife and I did something similar, but we went to the local county fair the next day, but it wasn't a honeymoon.  Man it still sounds white trashy no matter how you say it.  :-\

Actually I'll be WILL be seeing an early screening of CW on THIS Saturday at 10am! So after all of the "fun stuff" during the day on Friday, I have the movie to look forward to on Saturday as well!

Thanks Kenonobi.

To all, sorry if my post isn't dramatic about getting married. I guess after 10+ years and almost being 40, plus our careers and buying a home, it just isn't the same as compared to a young couple in love just starting out on their road of life together. We've been on the road for awhile now...LOL.

Hey and with this post, I'm at 1138 posts! (I'm such a nerd, heh heh.)

It's not as cool as getting married at Lake Varykino, but congratulations all the same.

Congrats on the wedding. 

Even though you've been together 10 years, I'm sure there are still some surprises in store for you guys.  Best of luck to you both and a super happy wedding and marriage.
