Gonna Get Married


I have a message.
A little Hamilton Easter egg for the fandom.


Drummer Boy and I are getting married.

Yep, we're definitely getting married.

We haven't set a date, mind you.

It will be, um, after Precocious Daughter graduates from high school (June 2018).

It will be after Drummer Boy is actually divorced from his wife, whom he hasn't seen in almost five years.

It will be at some point in the future that we haven't yet determined.

But here's the thing, Drunkards.

Drummer Boy and I are utterly devoted to each other.

Hopelessly, one might say.

We've talked about marriage for a long time. We've assumed that that is where we'd end up eventually.

Still, I've been divorced for just over a year now. And I love being single. It's scary as hell. Sometimes it's lonely as hell. Yet, after being married for 25 years, it's been absolutely exhilarating to be the captain of my soul. To not need a co-signer. To pay my own way.

Not to knock marriage as an institution, but DAMN, being single is pretty freaking great.

On the other hand, I yearn to be with Drummer Boy 24/7.

And not just be with him, but be part of him. able to make decisions if he's ever in the hospital. Like...represent him if he ever becomes unable to represent himself.

And vice versa, of course.

I decided, just a few days ago, that I would like to marry this man, whom I love with all my heart.

He is willing. Un-freaking-believable, right?

I'll let you guys know when we actually set a date.

Until then, be happy for us.

With apologies to Lerner and Loewe, I'm getting married in the...undefined future.

Ding dong, the bells are going to chime.

Sing along, and I'll probably send you an invite


  1. Yeah, you seem a bit more devoted to him than he is to you. Hope it all works out, but there seem to be more posts about him letting you down than you enjoying things together.

  2. That's fantastic news. Am I the only one who thinks so? Maybe it's just the romantic in me that thinks second marriages have a much better chance, that the ups and downs have left you with a better understanding of what to expect.
    I guess I'm the first here to wish you good luck. I won't be the last.

  3. Exciting stuff!!! Keep us posted!


You're thinking it, you may as well type it. The only comments you'll regret are the ones you don't leave. Also, replies to threads make puppies grow big and strong.
