Ainoko #20


I asked lafeel to be my husband earlier this week and he said yes! What that means is that I am no longer a part of the game of dating. I am officially withdrawing my stats card as I have no plans on ever returning back to the game. Both lafeel and I postponed our announcement here until we told some of our close friends first. I am copy pasting what I said in our conference chat earlier.



I won’t make any promises that are impossible to keep, like promising you the moon, or eternal happiness, or even the finest home ever built. What I can promise as your husband, if you will say yes, is that I will do my best to be a kind and loving man, treating you with the respect that you deserve, I will love you and no other, I will also try to surprise you in ways that will catch you off guard and out of left field. I will do whatever takes not to go to bed angry at you or anyone, I will be forgiving, not holding grudges against anyone whether they deserve it or not. All that I can promise and more.

Love, I am yours, to have and hold, to be by your side for better or worse, good and bad, happiness and illness and everything in between. I am nothing without you, you complete me like no other, you are the yin to my yang, the Abbott to my Costello, and the ice cream to my cake.

What I am saying love, is I want to spend the rest of my days with you not just as your lover, but as your husband. Lafeel, I am formally asking for your hand in marriage, please, I am asking you, please say yes.




Ég mun ekki gera neinar loforð sem er ómögulegt að halda, eins og lofa þér tunglið, eða eilíf hamingja, eða jafnvel besta heimili alltaf byggð. Það sem ég get lofað eins manninn þinn, ef þú segir já, er að ég mun gera mitt besta til að vera góður og elskandi maður, meðhöndla þig með virðingu sem þú átt skilið, ég mun elska þig og ekkert annað, mun ég líka að reyna að koma þér á óvart á þann hátt sem mun ná þér burt vörður og úr vinstri sviði. Ég mun gera hvað sem tekur ekki að fara að sofa reiður á þig eða einhver, mun ég vera að fyrirgefa, ekki halda grudges gegn neinum hvort þeir eiga skilið það eða ekki. Allt sem ég get lofa og fleira.

Elska, ég er þinn, að hafa og halda, að vera við hlið þín fyrir betri eða verri, gott og slæmt, hamingju og veikindi og allt þar á milli. Ég er ekkert án þín, heill þér mig eins og enginn annar, þú ert Yin til Yang míns, Abbott til Costello minn, og ís til kaka minn.

Það sem ég er að segja ást, er ég vil eyða restinni af dögum mínum með þér ekki bara eins og elskhuga þínum, en eins og manninn þinn. Lafeel, ég er formlega að biðja um hönd þína í hjónaband, takk, ég er að biðja þig, vinsamlegast segja já.


We have set our wedding date for 7/22/2014 exactly halfway between our respective birthdays.

This was a long, long time in the making. Is my family happy about this (my grandmother is happy though), no. Do I care, no. Lafeel is my love, my universe, my one and only, he is the one I want to spent the rest of my days with, the one whose arms I want to be in when my time here on Earth is over. I am sacrificing everything I have come to love here in the states to be with him. I know what I am doing is not going to be easy, hell, moving to Iceland to be with my soon to be husband is going to be one of the most difficult times in my life and I wouldn't want it any other way. I love him and he loves me, where this leads we don't know but will follow the path cherishing every experience whether good or bad.

Life has a funny way to make it interesting and how we handle it shows who we are deep down in side.
