At long last your friends have announced their engagement and there is probably nobody in the world who is more surprised about it than the pair of them. They have been together for as long as anyone can remember, possibly since time began or so it seems. You can not think of one of them without thinking of the other person at the same time. The thought of them ever going out with anyone else is totally ridiculous and yet you never thought you would live to see the day when they would actually get around to tying the knot, or at least announcing that they plan to tie it, eventually. Many of your friends have worked their way through half the population of your town, looking for The One and failing miserably. Many of your friends have found The One, more than once during the time that this happy couple have been going out together. Their parents must be rubbing their hands with glee at the joyful announcement, as they have long since had plans for having a guest bedroom once the last of their kids has flown the nest. Who knows what has taken this couple so long to come to this momentous decision. Perhaps they had to just take a couple more years to make absolutely sure that they were doing the right thing, or perhaps they think that the time is right. After all, an engagement party is a great excuse for getting everyone together in one place. It is also an excuse to receive some amazing engagement presents too. Because it is such a momentous occasion, it really does call for some mind blowing engagement presents which they can cherish for the rest of their lives together. If they are still living in their parents homes they will be happy to receive something that will be useful in their new home together, when they eventually get around to the wedding. As it has taken so long to get to the engagement stage in their relationship though, it could easily be another 5 years before they hand out the wedding invitations. So, give them some
that will keep them going until they walk down the aisle together.
