‘Mum I’m getting married’

 

My cousin burst to tears when she finally said ‘I do.’  She had been waiting for this for what seemed like forever. Millions of bachelorettes around the world are waiting for that abracadabra moment when they hear the ‘will you marry me’ and to be finally cast under a spell with the  ‘I, do’.

Little girls spend their lifetime crossing their fingers, wishing upon stars or four leaf clovers as they wait for their Knights in shinning armour. He’ll come soon. He must. Cinderella, Ariel, Pocahontas, Belle and Snow White all got theirs despite the obstacles. If Papa Disney says it’s going to happen then it must.

The search for the partner of your life is a bumpy road. Tears, laughter, disappointment, broken hearts and a lot of trial and error are all part of the package.

While others are making serious considerations about the right time to settle down the citizens of Celebdom are cashing in on the forever after euphoria.

Big budget weddings with horse carriages, venues fit for royalties, expensive give a ways, metres of wedding dress trails and the crème de la crème rocks on celebrity fingers. Celebrities have got the money to make a spectacle when they walk down to say their ‘I do’s’. Unlike your average ‘I do’ couple the return on investment on a celebrity wedding is amazingly enormous and the personal gratification derived from the show off factor is off the scales. It’s like reaching the peak of Maslow’s Hierarchy a thousand times over.

For the past few days there has been a buzz about Kim Kardashian’s 72 day wedding. Is Celebdom really taking the sacred bond of marriage seriously or is this becoming a fad?

The, ‘been there done that. It was fab!’
