Yes there was a date set and that date comes around every year. In fact the date may just keep rolling around. When I’m ready to be married I’ll get married it’s that simple.
Everyone should just chill, our relationship is very strong and we are both very big family people and I’m only going to get married once. I’m not going to rush into anything.
