The man who vowed never ever to get married again has apparently become engaged. I say apparently because no one has actually heard from the man(George Clooney) or the woman themselves. Kneepads reported it first and they don't ever go out on a ledge so there must be some kind of basis for their reporting, but so far, that only basis is that Amal Alamuddin had a ring on her ring finger that looked a lot like an engagement ring. George generally stays quiet about everything unless it is a fight with Steve Wynn about Obama or if you say something he doesn't like about one of his cocktail waitresses. As I told someone on Twitter this weekend, just because you get engaged doesn't mean you will get married. Clooney, who has gone through a series of women since his divorce to Talia Balsam way back in 1989 would be giving all that up. Is that something he wants to do? The next thing you know Amal will want kids and that will really throw George into a tailspin. Maybe he has decided he is too old to keep going with those year long contracts and wants to find someone who will be around to take care of him when he is senile.
Amal is certainly a good match for him. Brilliant. A lawyer. A liberal. Very good looking. Those all seem to be qualities that George would find attractive even if she can't take a drink order. As a lawyer though, she does share one important quality George loves. She charges by the hour.
