After dating for 12 years and two months, my boyfriend proposed to me.
After dating for 12 years and two months and claiming I didn't want to get married, I said yes.
And meant it.
So, what does this mean? Should we elope? "No," he says, "after all this time, people will want to celebrate; we should have a real wedding and host one kick-ass party."
So, here we are planning a wedding and I ask myself: how does a woman who never wanted to be the bride, be the bride?
