My Daughter Is Getting Engaged!

Sun Jul 09, 2006 4:18 am

AAAAAGGGHHH!

It's official, I'm becoming an old fart.

She's 20 years old, and her fiancé is a very fine hardworking boy. But Jeezus this is tough to get my head around. My little girl will be getting married!

The following is a representation of all the feelings I'm having right now:

 bomb  crazy  hissyfit  praise  spin  worried  banghead  brokenheart   champagne  eyepopping  no  pray  scared  tombstone  weeping  faint   hyper  veryhappy  yell  biggrin  bitelip  boggled  cloudnine  drunk  highfive  melting  trophy  vomit 

And finally, and most importantly,  old

So what sort of dad are you? Did you ask for the guy's CV and current salary? 

And don't forget it's the brides parents that has to pay for the wedding!  bigthumbsup

Congratulations to your daughter.

Is she someone that wants an expensive wedding that costs like $20-30 thousand. That will put a hole in your bank account  Wink

OMG! Congratulations in one side, but the other side must be hard to watch your little girl grow up. When my son left diapers earlier this year, it was even a little bittersweet to realize he was no longer a baby.

Since my daughter is only six, at least I can wait several years before she looses her innocence. And whichever guy she marries will have a hard time with her anyways, she has a looooong family history of females that are totally and completely female. For example, she already told me she could drink a regular Coke because 'it could make me fat'. Realize now that most of the women in our family are not skinny and dont worry much about diets.

Anyway, congratulations again. Keep us posted.

Look at the bright sides of this Big grin

2) She's still your widdle girl and will always be, till the day she dies
3) You haven't beaten Andy, agewise yet

Congratulations, man Big grin

Yeah, you might want to watch out if she starts talking about values of Qatar and that her country will rule the world someday...

I felt strange when my little sister got her drivers license, so yeah I probably have like a 0,000000001% idea of what you are going through  Smile

Wish her and your family to be all the best!

She's gonna have a hard enough time just dating . . . little bastard has to get by me and her step-dad first . . . did I mention he is a Deputy US Marshal??? It won't be pretty.

My daughter got married two years ago, and it was a wonderful event. I'm sure you'll enjoy it, as long as you don't look when you start signing the checks.....  biggrin

If it makes you feel any better, I'm sure he's been nailing her for quite some time. Now it's just at the point where she becomes an honest woman.

Thanks for all the wishes, guys.

I've insisted that he be financially self-sufficient before they get married, so it will be another couple of years. He's an apprentice chef in a 5-star hotel. He's extremely good at what he does (he did our family's christmas dinner bash last year), but he needs to finish the apprenticeship first.

But he's come an awful long way since I first met him a few years ago. He was a wigger at the time (white guy who tries to dress and talk like a rapper). The first time he came to the house I chased him off with a bat. Now he has learned how to act more civilized, can mix with any company (including 5-star customers), and he thanks me for having shaken him up a bit  Smile.

20 years old... Wow.

I cannot see myself getting engaged in the next five years. Eek (my parents think the same thing).

20 years old? Woah.. that's very young in my opinion, but I guess love always prevails. I'm 21 and I've never even remotely thought about marriage, despite being involved in a 2.5 year old relationship with my girlfriend.

I wish the best to her in her new life.

Saludos desde Caracas,
Luis
