She said “No”

meg and I biking“No”

Normally this would be the last response a man would want to hear after asking the age old question of, “… will you marry me?”

Only in this instance, she knew that he was only making a jest, of their conclusion on each others equivalent view of wedlock.

When there are too many factors and variables at play, it just doesn’t seem paramount.  Their lives are just fine as is.  Financially, emotionally and physically charming.  Why fix what is not broken?  When it fabricates a tenseness in conversation, trying to even muse momentarily… the who’s, what’s, when’s and how’s of “The perfect wedding day”, why would they even invest another second into the conception of holy matrimony?
