By now you have read the news that John Krasinki, who plays Jim on “The Office,” is engaged to wed fellow actor Emily Blunt of “The Devil Wears Prada” fame. Isn’t that wonderful?
Then why do I feel like crying?
John and Emily are both in their late 20′s, so they are definitely old enough to marry. And they have dated for the better part of a year, so it’s not like they are rushing into anything. Heck, they’re both funny and attractive — I’m sure they are a great match.
But marriage — really?
Marriage is hard enough for John and Emily no-name down the street who don’t have to deal with all the pressures that accompany stardom. Most newlyweds don’t have the paparazzi following them everywhere they go; try to make a marriage work with that going on every day. (Right, Jon and Kate + Eight?)
Stay engaged for a long, long time, guys. Wait until you are really sure. Because from what I’ve seen of late…the media is going make you wish you had.
