I actually think that getting engaged on Valentines is probably not the best move because it seems kind of cliche. As a guy, I can see the advantage to getting married on Valentines because it is kind of a 2 for 1. Yes, I know. I am a cad. I am extremely romantic and definitely do my part to support the Valentine industry. However, I also hope you are in a relationship where you get flowers more often than once a year or when you fight. Now, here is a couple breaking with my Valentine engagement taboo.
Howard Stern (the Howard Stern who is not a candidate to be a daddy. Well, actually I guess all men are candidates to be the daddy. But you know who I mean) got engaged to long-time girlfriend Beth Ostrosky. See, they have been dating 7 years and now they are engaged. Howard just bought himself like another 7 years. There is no wedding date announced, and I just don't know if Howard can pull that trigger again. I know he wants to, because he does not want to lose Beth, but I am sure he is really nervous. They are definitely a real couple and will be together a VERY long time.
