The period when a nieve couple, who thinks they are in love or has the ability to “live on love,” crosses the line from dating to planning marriage. It is an awkward time for the couple. They take weeks/months or God forbid, even years, to plan the rest of their lives. The bride-to-be scrounges Modern Bride Magazine and the internet for planning every detail of HER wedding from getting the best dress, the best hairdo, who her bridesmaids will be (and you can bet that one of them is probably sleeping with the groom-to-be), how to plan the ceremony, the invitations, the band, guests, the cake, etc. All this, while the groom-to-be just sits back and takes it in stride while bragging to his buddies that he is going to get to finally “score” whenever he wants without feeling guilty (forgetting the fact that he hopes his bride-to-be will never find out he’s screwing one of the future bridesmaids and having to get a home pregnancy test). The groom-to-be, knowing he will soon not be single anymore, has an all out effort to go to as many bars, nightclubs or strip joints with his buddies while he cant to find all the girls he can F before committing to “the one.” Its basically a time when the couple, especially the bride-to-be, are in Oz before coming back down to reality and discovering they hate each other 6-months later.
Engagement is often the time of indecision, insecurity and stress BUT worth it if the couple is right for each other. Otherwise, just do the easy thing and get married in Vegas for $100.
