But before we go any further, we think it may be wise for you to spend a few moments reading the 'Rules of Engagement'. Anyone who has been engaged or married before will be familiar with the 'rules' but for those of you who aren't, it is worthwhile familiarising youself with what you are about to enter into. Here goes:



The Rules of Engagement


'Getting engaged is something that should not be taken lightly and it requires much forethought before going ahead with - it should not be done whilst drunk or bored. The two of you must be in love, and ready to commit physically and mentally to a long term partnership in which arguments are forbidden and, should they occur, the woman is always right. It is likely that the engagement will require the purchase of an expensive ring which should cripple you financially for the immediate future. Upon purchase of the ring, neither of you may look at another person nor communicate with anyone of the opposite sex. Potential in-laws should be welcomed with open arms and, in anticipation of the financial contribution they traditionally make to the wedding, be shown utter respect and never ignored - if they plan to make no monetary donation, delete as appropriate.'
