Even Fake Couples are Getting Married!
I’ve officially entered a stage in my life that I didn’t think would come for another five years at least—-the “everyone I know is getting married and I’m their token single spinster-with-cats friend” stage.
And when I say everyone is getting married, I really mean everyone. The high school sweethearts from your freshman year math class. Your slutty friend who met her fiancé at a rave, high on E. Your crazy divorcee aunt who’s on her fifth marriage—sixth if you count the annulment after that weekend in Vegas.
The other day I read an article that really put the icing on the wedding cake. Apparently, two strangers who once posed together as a couple getting married for a hotel’s brochure are now actually getting married. The couple, Amanda Semmence and Kieron Dudley, who were hotel employees at the time, fell for each other during the photo shoot and are getting married for real and holding the reception in that same hotel.
Yep, along with everyone else in the world, even that fake couple with cheesy smiles participating in a series of exaggerated joyful scenes is shackin’ up.
The couple didn’t start dating until a year after the photo shoot—and 6 months later, Dudley proposed. Six months? I don’t even get to leave a toothbrush at his place after six months, and this woman got a proposal? This calls for a Sex and the City marathon. And a drink. Table for one, please.
