It's Official, Facebook Says We're Married!

I got married the other day. Yeah, I know, but hey, after almost thirty years, as someone pointed out, it was about time.

Now before you all go crazy thinking you were at my wedding on that blazing hot June day in 1979, or have always known me to be married, let me explain.

My wife recently joined Facebook. For those of you who have been living in a cave the last few years, Facebook is this kind of social network, or Satanic force depending on your point of view, that you can join and then spend countless hours looking for old friends from high school, the town where you grew up, and all of your past lives.

Anyways, once you join, you have to answer a series of questions about yourself for your profile. Then some sort of organizer puts all of your information into a giant Jetson’s like Univac computer and tells the entire network of 532 million people your status.

So as Chelle keyed in her info, it started to come online.

I first found out that Chelle and I were now friends. How you become Facebook friends is another whole discussion, but it was good to know that after being together for 30 something years, we are now, officially, friends

Then after a few minutes, it came up.

Chelle and Dave are now married. After 30 years!

What a relief that was.

For a guy working in ministry, that was a close call.

Congratulations Dave and Chelle on your Facebook nuptials. If only Facebook had a wedding registry app you could get yourself a set of steak knives and about a dozen toasters to celebrate.

 

Blogger Dave Miller said ... (9:49 AM) : 

Dave, when we got married, the big gift was Crock Pots and cheese trays.

We got 3 or 4 Crock Pots and about 38 cheese trays, which we still have not used, but are safely packed away just in case we ever need them.

I'm trying to imagine an event in which 38 cheese trays would be necessary. I expect an invitation.

 

Blogger James Wolfer said ... (7:26 PM) : 

As do I. Next banquet?

Make sure that you get married on myspace as well. And twitter. And whatever else is out there. You don't want to be married on one place and not another. That's a conflicting message...

 

Blogger Shaw Kenawe said ... (6:15 AM) : 

LOL! Congratulations. Again and again and again!

I joined Facebook only last week.

What James said. And be retro, too: get married on a Commodore 64, AOL, AltaVista, Gopher, and Flooz.
