The day will come when I've dated that special somebody long enough so that we both know we're right for each other. When that day arrives, and she accepts my proposal, I think it would be so utterly romantic to fly away the very next day if possible, just the two of us, no bridesmaids, best man, etc., and get married in a small ceremony where nobody knows us. Then we could devote the rest of our honeymoon to just the two of us, without others around to share the spotlight with.

Then we could go back home and share our happiness with others and have a reception after the fact, but we could be married and building our new lives together in the meantime.

When you've mutually decided to tie the knot, why wait for months to book the reception hall, make all the arrangements, invite all the people, etc.? I don't believe in sex outside marriage, so those months would be spent in continual temptation that could not be satisfied. That's a very practical reason for me to want to elope.

Does anybody else think eloping would be romantic?

Romantic??

Well, my mom offered my evil x and I $1,000 to elope (before he was my evil x) but we were to stupid and took the money.

Second time we had a small fun wedding that was glorious.

So, ya gonna give her a mushmelon to put in the windowsill for if things don't go as planned???

What a lovely fantasy you have.

You said:
"and get married in a small ceremony where nobody knows us. Then we could devote the rest of our honeymoon to just the two of us, without others around to share the spotlight with. "

Being out of the spotlight would also protect you of critisism. Nobody knows you so nobody would have anything bad to say. This is what I think you fear

SORRY Seeker I always analise things...

Eloping is a fantasy and for me its good to elope in my mind at times. It takes me away from everything where I can be me without the baggage.

Before I go. Just thought about something my therapist said some weeks ago.

I decided I wanted to emigrate. This for him ment I made the emotional separation and I want to confirm this in making n physical separation.

Just wanted to add - for what its worth

Seeker....I think I already told you once that you should write a book for men!!! I'll say it again now!

How lovely!! Gosh you are so romantic...can you please come to Ireland and give some lessons to the men on how to be romantic, genuine, respectful, honest and open. We are in desperate need for guys like you here!

Seeker: That is always what I have dreamed of- eloping w/ my man and privately celebrating. I couldn't think of anything more loving and romantic- and it would just be for us. Even as a young girl the whole wedding thing didn't appeal to me. Whoever you end up with is going to be the luckiest woman on earth.

seek,
planning a wedding is more for the younger crowd i believe. that is a very sweet idea you have there, and who ever you end up marrying, it will most likely please her if she knew that you had put so much thought, and good wishes into it as well.
see, seek...you have won many hearts here on aac already!

I have always thought weddings vows are about two people in love and want to commit to a lifetime together. I am sure that when you find the special someone then together you will find what is comfortable for the both of you!

mamac,

{So, ya gonna give her a mushmelon to put in the windowsill for if things don't go as planned???}

I'd give my love anything that might help her. But I'm confused as to what this means. It must be a Southern expression. Please, would you translate?

I suppose you don't like the idea of eloping. Then I won't ask you. Your husband might kick my rear end. :o)

(((Garfield))),

I always analyze things too much myself. It used to be, many years ago, that you couldn't say hi to me without me wondering, "What did she mean by that?"

Yes, it would be fun to get away from everybody else for the wedding. The way I see it, we'd be sharing the rest of our lives with our family, friends, and neighbors -- why not start it out just us?

Congratulations on emigrating! I hope that works out for you.

revelation,

So that was you who'd earlier suggested I write a book. I couldn't remember who it was. I've actually formed an idea for a book in my mind -- I'll run it past you one of these days.

I wonder how the Irish men would take to me. I'd be glad to educate them properly on how to treat you wonderful women. Aren't the men over there a pretty rough lot? It will double the challenge, and the potential rewards.

seek-every couple i know who entered their second marriage did what u are planning. the commitment is the important thing. i know one couple who got married in their tennis shoes and shorts and then went to the beach for the weekend. they told about two months later. and they are living the happier ever after thing that u dont see very often anymore. they said they waited two months to announce the wedding so they could have a two month honeymoon.

Seeker...rough? No...thats all a facade...underneath it all, they are mostly silly little mammys boys, who don't have an original thought or opinion in their heads other than what mammy puts in there! I swear!! Then there are the ones who all of a sudden get tired of mammy pushing them around and controlling their every move(under the guise of being a "fine soft woman") they end up just hating women!!! So...Eire, not the land of saints and scholars...rather the land of single-gals and mysoginists!!!!

Go write that book!

revelation,

Uh, oh. The situation sounds more desperate than I realized. Time for me to don my SuperSeeker cape and fly over there without delay. I'll be like St. Valentine, landing there and converting all the misogynists to unmisogynists, or whatever you call the opposite of a misogynist.

And boy, do I ever sound like a narcissist! I'm gagging myself with a spoon.

overtly merry woman,

LOL! Yes, with my kilt in Ireland I'd either be shunned or hit on, depending on the crowd.

I used to think that Scottish men carried knives in their socks to take care of anybody who made fun of them for wearing "skirts".

Seeker:

The story of the mushmelon....

This young man asked his true love if she would marry him. Unfortunately, she had been forbidden to see him by her father. He was not of "their kind". Well, the man and the lady just could not be separated so they planned to elope. He gave her a mushmelon and told her if anything went wrong to put it in on the windowsill. If she was ready he'd be there just after midnight to climb up the rose trellis and then take her away to their new and happy lives. She was so elated. She went home and put only the very necessities in her bag and waited for her true love. At midnight the young man went to pick up his true love to take her to their new happy everafter life. When he got there the mushmelon was sitting in the window. He was just devastated. So much so that he went and jumped off a cliff. The young lady missed her love so much that she never married.

So, if you want to elope be sure to give your love a mushmelon to put in the window if plans don't work out. That way you will know that they CANTELOPE. 🙂

My thoughts on eloping is that so many that love you will not be able to share in your happy day.

guppy,

I got my sense of humor one morning in a cereal box, while my friends got racing cars. I was very disappointed then, but now they're all jealous of me.

Seriously, I don't know where it came from. I've written tons of poetry and read a lot, studied math and physics ... I guess somewhere in there some humor spores fell into my head and started growing in some dark corner. By the time I discovered them, it was too late to stop them.
