Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Mr & Mrs Strangelove, or How I learned to stop worrying... and eloped!
So, I came here for some good old fashioned anonymous advice when I proposed to my fiance. (Paris for those interested... Actually - seen GI Joe? You know when the Eiffel tower fell? We'd have been screwed!)
So, we're happy. Like, stupid happy. We've moved countries, found jobs, house by the beach, 2 kittens - we're set. I mention this only because we're actually talking about scary stuff like kids now. After a while, we realised that we're putting off the marriage and subsequently our lives because of considerations for other people and their attendance of our wedding.
So the other day, this happens:
Her: I wish I could marry you sooner. I dont care about the perfect wedding any more. Me: If I thought that you really meant that, I'd book a ticket, fly us to a pacific island and we'd be married by next week. Her: ... OK.
So, the conversation continued to the idea of us bringing forward the wedding to early next year, and taking a small group of people to somewhere like Fiji or Rarotonga etc and getting married.
Where do I even start looking for something like this? The idea of just heading to an average resort-type place doesn't appeal. But there must be some amazing places to get married in the Pacific (we're in New Zealand). Anybody been somewhere worth me checking out?
[Also, part of this exploratory exercise is me making sure that this is really what she wants... Just in case anyone's concerned]
