Modern Love

These days, having the banns read out doesn't really work. Especially if you're atheists with no intention of setting foot inside your parish church. Based on the fact that the chap and I got engaged on Monday, modern 'banns' consist of:

  • telling the parents via the traditional medium of the phone
  • emailing a friend in the States
  • texting various friends in the UK
    (at which point the text messages goes mad as they reply and the chap's mates - who he just told in the pub - start texting to say "don't do it!")
  • updating your Facebook status
  • blogging about it
I still have to write to my siblings but there we go. The initial reaction has given me a tiny terrifying insight into why weddings become scary monsters but I think I'll be stubborn enough to ensure we get what we want rather than what the wedding hooha pressures people into getting.
