When Paul and Linda announced their engagement, I regret to say that a number of people expressed their concern as to whether they were doing the right thing. The general feeling was, having only got together 15 and a half years ago, they might just be rushing into things. On the other hand, many family members expressed their surprise when they received their wedding invitations. It seems that many thought that they were already married, and they merely couldn’t remember the details of the wedding day.
A while ago I asked Linda why she and Paul took so long to marry. Linda explained that a long engagement is advantageous because it gives people the opportunity of finding out each others character before marriage. And it’s for this reason that a long engagement in my case would never be advisable.
