The extra weight is not by chance. It's natures design, meant as a way for the female species to "mark" their mate.

(In my best late Steve Irwin impression) "Watch....as she stalks her prey. She's in a bit of a fix however, because this male is already claimed. Note the slight gut, the seemingly lifeless look in his eyes. Yes, this one has already been bagged and tagged."

Thanks for the congrats everyone!

I am very excited as when I converted to Catholicism and obviously took my faith seriously I thought I'd never find a girl my age with the same views. She's the oldest of 11 kids (10 girls, the boy is 3 years old) and I couldn't ask for better in-laws.

It should be a good, fruitful vocation (God willing). :D

Yeah, I seem to be walking a bit slower today... I think it's because of the extra weight. :)

You are very wise for one so young.

No, I really feel more like this: :cloud9: I think the shock will come more on the wedding day. :D

I just wanted to let my DCF family know!
Congratulations. May your marriage be as good my wife's and mine (approaching 33 years).

I'm glad you didn't use the "puke" emoticon.
Now just pay Puppi the royalty for the use of the "cloud9" one – unless she waives it as an engagement gift.

Thank you!

Our first kiss will be on our wedding day and it will be her first kiss ever (she was homeschooled and I was her only boyfriend). Me, on the other hand, well I went to public school... enough said.

Thanks for the prayers though to keep the relationship pure.

Once you let her near a television she will have to catch up on "her show". You won't see her for a year!

If you follow my advice things will go well for you:

Don't have garlic or blue cheese for breakfast, and don't slobber on her.

Thanks for the advice... it will have been a few years since my last kiss. I never would have thought before meeting this girl I would have been able to wait this long, but it has been nothing but beneficial to our relationship - for reasons I am sure I do not have to explain to people on this board.

Innocence and purity have a beauty and attraction that is only surpassed by the Beatific Vision.

See how much God has blessed you two?

I pray that your purity continues throughout your life together and into eternity.
