I finally asked my girlfriend to marry me. She said yes. She was quite taken aback by the ring, and of course, being the one who shelled out the bucks for it, so was I.
But there are a number of obstacles in the way;
-She's Canadian. I'm American. So there's the question of who moves where.
-She's lived either in apartments or at her dad's place all her life so she doesn't seem to understand the value of owning a house that is already completely paid off. No mortgage or anything. And since I've paid off the mortgage on my house, it's making me reluctant to get rid of it entirely and head someplace new where I'll have to start all over again.
-Her dad. He's quite prejudiced. Which is apparently not as uncommon among Canadians as I'd imagined. When she and I first started seeing each other, he flipped out because I was not only American, but also black. Ever since, he's been attempting to use a variety of excuses to cover his prejudice. "Oh, it's not because he's black! Really!" I recall one time I went up to visit her, and we had planned out a dinner with her dad so we could meet face to face and hash out any strife between us. He cancelled five minutes before we were supposed to meet. Literally. His excuse was no more elaborate than, "I don't want to meet him."
At any rate, this is why I've been absent for the past week, both here and at the Rama(2). We haven't set a date yet, but it seems the Strict is finally gonna become a married human.
1: Move to Canada. It's cooler and less drama.
2: Keep the House, even if you have to move it to Canada.
3: Explain to him the concept of Breeding to repair eroded DNA. His bloodline will thank you for your contribution.
