O & C - Betrothed?



I now totally understand betrothals, and I think we should bring them back into fashion. As a parent, I totally get it, I would love to choose my special darlings' eternal partners for them. There are quite good choices I know, and it would just make the worrying so easy to know the other families and get along with my darlings future in-laws, not just get along but really enjoy. I mean I am super glad I got to choose, I don't think my parents would have find my diamond in the rough in the deserts of Arizona. Maybe I am nervous that I will lose my boys (inevitable) and maybe if I like the future in-laws we can all hang out, live close, go on fabulous vacations together, be certain the kids will finish school, etc. I really will not try to do this, but it is intriguing I must admit! By the way, the pairing above would be a prime choice. I have overheard O tell his brother that "C (pictured above) is his Mommy (re:wife)" he does love her and they get along famously, but I know, I know they are 4! I do love her Mommy, who just gave birth to darling Jack (who's middle name is T, so AK and I want to call him JT, not so sure she will like it) who would be a perfect match for P. We love the parents, live close, everything is swell. The pics were taken at Hogle, Liz at 9 months pregnant took the two wild 4 year olds. See, she is unbelievable, who wouldn't want to be related to her. What do you think, betrothals sound alright to you? Matchmaker, matchmaker make me a match, find me a find, catch me a catch...

I think it sounds like a great idea. I have my eye on three of the Craig kids. If only they would have another girl.

Yes! Actually, Ryan's richie-rich boss had an arranged marriage. And he lucked out (about so did she $$).

Based on my personal experience, I think there are many pros to arranged marriage. Love can truly be so blind! After my divorce I told my family that IF I was to EVER remarry - it would be with their endorsement. Not only did I fall madly in love with Mark, my family did as well!

I agree- they are a great family... Maybe one of my boys will marry a cousin!

Oh my so cute! :) Peter is unofficially betrothed to our friend's baby girl, Adie. If that doesn't work out, we have another set-up lined up, with an older woman (she's two). Haha.
