I am Engaged 婚約いたしました

I am engaged now.

I am engaged to Ty Burhoe.

I am very appreciative to have met him beyond words. The fact that we found each other itself makes me cry.

I don't know who you are (alcoLOLz!1!), but thank you very much.

Congratulations to you, too. I hope you have plenty of time to get to know each other and become really good friends. A cross-cultural marriage can be a very enriching experience, as I know, but it can also be very hard, too. There is no end of communication struggles, problems with in-laws, identity issues (especially for the children), etc., etc., that people who grew up together in the same place rarely face. You probably won't believe any of this, and neither did I when I was 26 either. Blessings.
