Betrothed
Kemer, Turkey

Glenn, my brother, will be graduating from medical school in the second quarter of 2010. I told Tatiana over a Skype conversation today that this was going to be a pretty big family event that we'd certainly be back in the U.S. to attend.

…Then I asked her if she'd maybe like to combine the celebrations for Glenn's thing with us getting married.

In the midst of laughing and crying, she said "Yes… that'd be nice."

I still need to ask her parents for permission, as that's the way it's done in their culture, but… well, there it is.

Happy Valentine's Day.

jijijijij i knew it already…. congrats!!! Im so happy for both of you!! But.. you dont HAVE to ask for permission jajaj you make it sound like we are still living in 1800… well probably my aun still think that jajaja but Is not that if dad or mom dont want she is not getting married… but more that permission is having "The formal conversartion" about you want to take her daugter and you will take care of her and be there for all her needs and all that…. that in time becomes a LIE in our culture, because the woman ends up taking care of the guy, the kids, the kitchen and the dog jajajajaj QUE LATINO!… a huuuuuuuuuuuuge hug and hope to see you soon.. love you Brother in law!!!
