Of Course Bridget Marquardt Isn't Getting Engaged


People Magazine had a little chat with Bridget Marquardt about her life now that she has left the Playboy Mansion. She said the same damn things she has been saying for the past month. She has a new boyfriend and he's great and blah, blah, blah. Then People asked her if she was planning on getting engaged anytime soon. OK. First of all, isn't it the guy they should be asking in this situation? Last I checked it was still the guy who generally went and picked out the ring and was at least the person who did the initial asking of the question. Sure, Bridget would have the ultimate decision making power in saying yes or no, but it really is up to the guy whether or not he is going to ask.

But all of that is moot anyway. Instead of asking Bridget if she was getting engaged, they should have asked her if she was ever going to get divorced from her husband so that she is free to marry if and when her director boyfriend Nick Carpenter does decide to ask her. It's all well and good that he has met all her family and that Bridget's dad seems to be a regular at The Mansion, but before there can be any talk of Hef walking her down the aisle, Bridget needs to walk down the aisle of a courtroom and get divorced.

Oh, and don't think from this post that I don't like Bridget, because I do. She is my favorite of the three Girls Next Door. I just think that she should give all the details about why she will be still answering these same questions about getting engaged until she actually gets divorced. Hopefully at some point on her little press tour for her new Travel Channel show someone will ask her about her marriage, and not just gloss over it like People.

Who did she marry?

Bridget was married before she moved into the PM. Since then her husband has become her business partner. He runs her website and a store that Bridget owns.

Ok, so I'm lost. She is still married,and still has some kind of relationship with him. So did they file for divorce, or does he just not care if she has a boyfriend? I had no idea she was married. I can't imagine that going over to well in most marriages, but to each his own I guess.

"Isn't it the guy that's supposed to...?" oh come on EL don't tell me you believe in antiquated tripe such as that. God, proposals and marriage tradition are so rooted in the man being the center of the relationship. Marriages are to be entered as an equal partnership: its two people's decision, not one. Its as much her right to say whether or not she'll get married as it is his.

When you say "its up to the guy to ask" you're saying "its up to the guy to decide whether or not they'll get married" which is BS. Often women make that decision for themselves first. Not all women are just waiting for their guy to ask. Ugh.
