    Cathy, just because you started planning your wedding from the time you were old enough to know what a wedding was (and your mother started planning it from the time she heard, “Congratulations; it’s a girl!”), that doesn’t mean that Irving did. Men aren’t raised to be as obsessed with getting married as you are (and from what I’ve heard, neither are most women, actually!).

    Don’t be silly — they’re not living together yet. Cathy wasn’t raised that way, despite what she claims!

    I ’m with Irving on this one. Sheesh, dial it down a bit, Cathy! EYEROLL

    Is that how the selection process for Maid of Honor works? I don’t think Best Man is that complicated!

    You guys are missing the point of Rat’s comment. What he’s really saying is that everything Goat says is yawn-inducing. In other words, Goat is a bore who needs to shut up now.

    They can also get stuck in your head all day.

    The whales are alive with the sound of music!

    I think I must have caught Pastis Syndrome.

    Right you are about Irving, GretchensMom. The fact that the only reason he proposed was that he felt safe doing it because he expected Cathy to turn him down tells me that he isn’t any more ready for marriage than she is.

    I’ve never been married, but it’s something I think about any time I start feeling sorry for myself because I haven’t yet met Mr. Right. I remind myself that getting married is the easy part — it’s STAYING married for 20, 30, 40, or 50+ years that’s the hard part. I remind myself that marriage is a 24/7/365 job, and that it takes a level of commitment and unselfishness that I sometimes wonder if I’m capable of producing. Could I really do whatever I had to in order to be there for my husband “for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health” — and do I even understand what that means? I doubt Cathy and Irving do!

    Actually, her answer to Mom’s question makes me wonder whether Cathy is really ready for marriage. Like her mother, she seems think of marriage as the ultimate endgame, when it’s really only a beginning. She’s only thinking of what marriage to Irving will mean in terms of her happiness; she doesn’t seem to realize that she will also be expected to contribute to his happiness. In other words, she only sees what she thinks are the benefits of marriage, but she hasn’t yet started seeing all of the responsibilities. That’s why she’s not panicking at the thought that yes, she’s about to change her life forever.

    She’s not in denial. The reality just hasn’t sunk in yet.
