I got married on Facebook!

Here's an update to last week's entry about me getting engaged on Facebook.  (I am so online, it's not even funny)

I got an email message from Facebook; here is the Subject line of that message:

<name withheld to protect the innocent> said that you two are married...

That's quite a claim.  I just had to read on; here is what the message said:

<name-of-person-requesting-Facebook-marriage> said on Facebook that you two are married.  We need you to confirm that you are, in fact, married to <name-of-future-wife>.

To confirm this relationship request, follow the link below:


When I logged into Facebook, it notified me that You have a relationship request from <said-person>.  Clicking on the link brought me to The Big Facebook Moment:

You have a request from <still-not-going-to-tell-you-her-name> (Silicon Valley, CA) to add her as your spouse... Would you like to confirm your relationship with <she-is-mine-go-get-your-own-Facebook-wife>?

then the two buttons Confirm and Ignore.

Geez, this is more involved than our wedding vows.

What happens when I press Confirm?  It's anticlimactic, really: Facebook congratulates us by saying You are now in a relationship with <name-of-Facebook-and-real-life-wife>.

What?  That's it?  I don't even get, like, a coupon good for 20% off dinner at a nice, quiet restaurant in (Silicon Valley, CA)?  Apparently, being married is supposed to be satisfying enough.

Turns out it is.

Comments:

Technically, Savitha got married before you did. She was already married on Facebook on Sunday while you were still engaged and it was two days before your wedding. She is even more so online than you are, my friend.

BTW, can I just say that for all of your drum corps geekiness (for which you are SO well known and loved by the masses who attended your nuptials), you haven't updated your drum corps blog in THREE YEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
