KARA: I’m actually going to be married in 14 days. When you’ve been dating someone for seven years, stressing about such a thing seems absurd. As my friends have helpfully pointed out, we’ve been, like, sort of married for years now. Maybe so–but I think some deep dark part of me always knew that if our relationship went haywire, I could pack up my things while Brian was at work and hide out in my childhood bedroom until he forgot all about me.
That’s not an option anymore. Our marriage license has been registered. Our band is practicing “Sweet Caroline” as I type. There’s no turning back now.
