HydesOut2 saidAs far as what to call my spouse, I'm toying with several
possibilities..."my bitch" is the winner so far.
Haha,,, you're a hot mess and we need those types to keep things interesting around here.
First off, congrats on your nuptials after all this time!
Now, since you know I'm about to take the big plunge in October, please tell Grasshoppa what it feels like for you two.
Are you glad you did it? Do you feel any closer. What was your wedding like?
Give us some juicy details other than your house slave is named Bitch.
I'm dying to know...
btw... feel free to change you status from Monogamous to Married anytime you feel like. If I could choose the term Engaged, I would, but it's not an option.
First let me say, your profile pic looks remarkably like Pierce
Brosnan...you're both great looking guys!
Thank you for your good wishes...
I must admit, I do feel a little different...like I'm suffocating...
just kidding. We mainly did it for practical reasons like if one of us got
hospitalized for being seriously injured or ill, the other would be able to
visit in a "family only" situation...also, we own a house together,
and if one of us died, without being legally married, the survivor
would lose the house because of inheritance taxes and the like,
whereas spouses don't have to worry about that. I'm sure other
perks will arise. But yes, in an odd way, after 17 years, I think we
do feel closer.
It happened very spur of the moment...he picked me up after work,
we went to the county courthouse and got a license, called one of
our best friends who went online and got ordained, met him and
his wife and two kids at their place which is an incredible
property of rolling fields overlooking the Pacific Ocean. So, on a cliff
with whales spouting in the distance below us, coyotes in the brush
and horses in the field, we said our vows as the sun was setting over
the water. We then had champaigne, and back to their house
for a lovely home cooked dinner (she's a professional-chef).
It was so cool that their kids were there...the boy is six
(we're his godfathers), and the girl is eight, and they were great...
not phased or weirded out by it at all, but really excited to be a
part of it. It was quick, simple, and beautiful.
I'm sure your wedding will have better planning, and I hope that
it's a gorgeous day for you both!
