According to news reports, NBA player, Carmelo Anthony and LaLa Vazquez finally tied the knot after years of being engaged. Some had begun calling Vazquez the eternal fiance (seriously, google that term!) since the amount of time from proposal to wedding day was five years.
It’s anyone’s guess what the reason for the prolonged engagement was but I figured that they were both in no huge hurry to get married. The fact that they had remained together after the proposal and “promise” to get married seemed like enough for them.
Are more couples prolonging their engagement these days? If you were engaged to be married, would you want to get married right away?
Do you think that a prolonged engagement is a sign of something deeper? Does it mean cold feet or could it be that it’s actually a good thing to be engaged for an extended amount of time?
What would you do if there was an official marriage proposal but the actual wedding, pre-marriage planning was stalled?
