I’m getting married! I’m getting married! I’m getting married!
Well, I think I’m getting married.
Every now and then, I’d ask Cart, “When are you going to marry me?” and he’d give the same answer, “You know our issues. I’ll marry you now if it werent for that“.
Cart and I have different religious beliefs. In our situation, marriage would not be legal unless one of us converts. But faith isn’t something that can be forced upon. This isn’t easy. But I have faith that eventually we’ll be together.
Recently I asked him again.
Me : So, when are you going to marry me?
(Fully expecting the same answer)
Cart: Whenever you want
Me: We’ll get married on the 18th December. That’s a special day for me.
(Thats the date when we became partners in secondlife)
Cart: Hmm … that’s too early, it clashes with my vacation days
(Completely flummoxed upon realising that he’s being serious)
Me: Huh? You’re really going to do it? Really? Really Really?
Cart: I could. You’ll have to tell me exactly what will happen.
Me: You mean the customs?
Cart: Yes, I’d like to have an idea of what will happen. I’d also like to find a job for you here. I want you to have a good life”
Ok, so he didn’t propose. But that still counts as a proposal right?
And yet, there is this nagging feeling if I’ll ever adjust to life over in Rome. Maybe its time for me to stop lurking and start posting at the Singapore Brides forum.
