    Plus, Val is supposedly 39-40ish… I’m right at that same age, and have NO desire to be pregnant at 41!

    I think we are in for at least a week of Val not knowing what to say to Phil. I’m sure some semblance of the words “didn’t we agree to discuss this later?” will come up.

    I do see many threads that Jan could get from the scenario of them being engaged… but like a few people have commented, I don’t see marriage as the ultimate ending or “doing the right thing.” Sure, it is nice, but a piece of paper shouldn’t change anything if one is in a committed relationship. (Unless there is really good tax breaks, what does that piece of paper prove?)

    Lots of people think that marriage is the ideal ending… but I’m not one of them. I’m not against them getting married; but I’m more of a if they are committed to each other, that is good enough for me! :D

    In my humble opinion, it’s like the step before becoming “officially engaged.” Just like Val and Phil went from dating to going steady (it was in the last Stone Soup book). Small steps. It just kind of seals the promise that if and when they are ready, it will be to each other. Does that make sense? :)

    Think it will be an engagement ring or perhaps a promise ring? They did promise each other that the other would be “the one” if/when the time comes.

    I wonder if he’ll come out with an engagement ring or a promise ring? After all, they did promise to each other that if and when the time comes, each one with be the other’s “one.”

    I agree! I thought “going steady” was enough for both of them? But I guess times change and so do feelings.

    I’m hoping that Phil is just surprised that Val was actually thinking about marriage. This topic has come up many times before… and one or both isn’t ready.

    In the book “It Seemed Like A Good Idea…” Phil proposed that they go steady. Aren’t they still?
