    Engagement can be a bit like romantic purgatory for some, but at least you get to test drive a ring.

    One Is Tardier Than The Other

    | Chicago, IL, USA | Engaged

    (I’m boarding a plane tomorrow that will take me a thousand miles away from my fiancé for four months for an internship. We don’t know if we’ll get to see each other until the end of it. We’re both absurdly emotional today and know it’ll just be worse tomorrow. Today’s our last full day together, so we’re spending it just the two of us.)

    Fiancé: “My brain keeps going through crazy scenarios.”

    Me: “Like what?”

    Fiancé: “Like if we stay home today, this day won’t happen and we can spend the day together tomorrow and then the next day you’ll be on the plane.”

    Me: “Unfortunately, time doesn’t work that way, honey.”

    Fiancé: “I know… darn it, where’s my TARDIS or my DeLorean?”

    Me: *laughs*

    Fiancé: “Or better yet, I’ll build a TARDeLorean!”

    That Is Why They Call It Puppy Love

    | Williamsport, PA, USA | Engaged

    (My fiancée has always wanted a dog, and her voice goes into “excited kid mode” whenever the topic of owning a dog comes up.)

    Fiancée: “At work, someone said they just had Siberian husky puppies, and, and, and I want da puppies.”

    Me: “We can’t. A puppy wouldn’t get along with the cats.”

    Fiancée: “Da puppies would eat da cats! So it’s okay.”

    Me: “Riiight. And who’s going to house train the dog and take it for walks, because I can’t.”

    Fiancée: “I’ll do all dat! I want da puppies! Let me have da puppies.”

    Me: “Well, we’re closing in on our wedding date, so I suppose a puppy would make for a decent trial run.”

    Fiancée: “A trial run?”

    Me: “Sure. If the puppy dies, we know we shouldn’t have kids.”

    Fiancée: “Oh, nice!”

    Me: “Love me anyway?”

    Fiancée: “Love you because.”

    A Sad Reminder Of Her Oddness

    | Lexington, SC, USA | Engaged

    (After reading A Sad Reminder of His Oddness, I decided to tell it to my fiancé as a joke.)

    Me: “One day, one of us is going to die.”

    Fiancé: “Only one of us? Can it not be me?”

    Me: *glaring* “And the other one will be sad!”

    Fiancé: “But I won’t be dead, right?”

    A Sad Reminder Of His Oddness

    Good Use Of Thought Control

    | CA, USA | Engaged

    (My fiancée and I are all dressed up for a dinner date, since we are celebrating my being offered a new job. It should be noted that I am a big Pink Floyd fan.)

    Me: “So we’re going to [Restaurant], right?”

    Fiancée: “Yep! Sounds good.”

    Me: “I figured we don’t need to call ahead, right? Like, it’s a little after the usual dinner rush, and they tend to have free tables.”

    Fiancée: “Yeah, I think we’ll be fine.”

    Me: “So, we can just walk in?”

    Fiancée: “Yep!”

    (Then, to my surprise, she sings the following to the tune of ‘Another Brick in the Wall, Part 2.’)

    Fiancée: “We don’t need no reservation…”

    (She won a high-five.)

    That Would Be An Interesting Wedding

    | USA | Engaged

    (My fiancé just finished with a 10 hour shift and he is exhausted. I’m working on finalizing the guest list to our wedding, and he’s ‘helping.’)

    Fiancé: “Don’t forget my girlfriend’s boyfriend.”

    Me: “…Wanna try that again?”

    Fiancé: *realizing* “S***. My SISTER’S boyfriend!”

    Fiancé: “You’re never going to let me live this down are you?”

    Me: “Not a chance!”
