i’m fascinated by that thing on her head. it’s mesmerizing. also it could be hazardous to anyone closeby but maybe that is the point? :P if she turned her head sharply she could put someone’s eye out. take that, paparazzi!
of course, never say never but i’m pretty sure i’m done :P
Ruby, will you marry me?
Can someone give me a briefing on what’s happened the last couple pages? Thnx.
Hmmm. Now just because you saved Ruby from further humiliation doesn’t mean she takes the next step into a relationship with you, Jerry. ;)
If anyone is interested, I’m willing to enter a group marriage with everyone here in STL.
haha u guys. i’m flattered but will only consider living in sin, sorry :P
a 33 carat diamond might make me reconsider however
My two cents, I’m not particularly gunning for marriage but am open to it. However, I’d want to be with someone for quite a while, relatively-speaking, before tying the knot. Call me prude, but it bothers me to think that people will get engaged after only being together for a few months or a year [I’d think you should try living with someone significantly longer than that and then decide whether you want to get ‘hitched’.]
Anyway, that’s just me . . .
I’ll give you 33 carats AND live with you in sin.
Beat that offer, you Mubi krauts.
♥ jerry’s my hero ♥
I didn’t live with my guy before we got married. We dated for 5 years and then tied the knot. This year we will have been married for 21 years. I would never give up my private life before that. All this goes to show is that it depends on the people in question. In my case, I don’t believe in giving up my freedom unless that person is strong enough to deal with marriage. But at any rate, I only like the idea of marriage for once. So much work goes into it, I don’t think I’d have the energy to do that again.
And to hell with jewels. As the saying goes, money can’t buy my love
I’m just thinking that the whole marriage v freedom equation is false, it being your choice and thus freedom to get married. When you buy a house, it comes with responsibilities and ties you down to a certain geographic location, you may not be ready for it and it could put you in debt for a long time or you can save for a while, you may find it’s not the right place or move on, regrettably or with fondness, life just takes you in a different direction or the house itself becomes the center foundation for your security and wellbeing, but I’ve never heard anybody call house ownership and all the stress and lifestyle changes that come with it ‘prison.’
^Similarly, I think it’s perfectly reasonable to have multiple (sp)houses and engage in timeshares. No judgment there from me, if you think you can work it out.
Exactly, it all depends on the people involved.
right. wow odi you’re really a good catholic girl. ♥
those ‘timeshares’ don’t generally work out in the long run but they can be fun for awhile ;)
one must be willing to live in the moment. and yes i have a terrible fear of commitment. the thought of buying a house fills me with terror and i doubt i will ever manage it. i think the jewelry was traditionally a kind of insurance for women when they had little or no earning power. i’ve never cared about it but i’m not much for traditions
@tommy: Looks like Odi and Ruby’s dads have to pay for everything in the wedding :P
You know what I don’t get about marriage in America?
The fact that the father of the bride pays for the wedding.
I’ve never been rich enough to have a timeshare but I did spend a while at someone else’s cabin by the lake. We’re all still friends.
that’s a remnant of dowry i believe dude ^ my dad certainly didn’t pay for my wedding and it’s a good thing too cuz he woulda been mad as hell when it lasted less than one year lol. i subsequently lived with a guy very happily for 12 years. he did used to bitch cuz i wouldn’t get a joint bank account. i have trust issues.
haha DiB i think i know what you’re talking about but maybe not? still friends is the important part
Looks like Ruby’s is an exception, but I’ll never know what’s up with it cuz I’ll never get married.
never say never lil dude
i think at this point i couldn’t live with anyone else, i am so used to living alone. i love it very much. i no longer have to compromise on anything ever lol. truth is i never knew anyone who had similar taste in films, books, music so it took a while for me to ‘become’ myself. money and a room of one’s own are very important :)
But retards can. How I bought Ruby’s love:
hahaha jerry! ^ that’s wonderful
@ruby: I am pretty convinced I will NEVER get married. And don’t quote Justin Bieber.
Woohoo, Ruby!! We are in the my -father -didn’t -pay -for -my -thankfully -short -marriage club :)
heh well i got married by a justice of the peace to which we took a bus so… i was all of 18
my dad never even met my husband. suffice it to say they wouldn’t have gotten along
^ An idea for a blog list: prescient fathers :P
But why Ruby really loves me:
thx for making me smile jerry xD
that’s a lovely video. i used to work all night too
I think my dad would have loved this one :) but we are just happy lovers of two years right now. No marriage yet :)
Hmmmm. I just realized I’m not following the person courting my dear Ruby!! Gasp.
have fun while you’re young bijoux. i recommend it highly ;)
