ANNOUNCEMENT: @Cathi-xx And @Gonzo Are To Be Married - A Steemit Wedding!!!

in steemit •  9 months ago

If you’re unfamiliar with our story we met in the early days of Steemit, back when I was writing poetry and Sarah ( @cathi-xx) was replying to my poems in order to inform me of how terrible they were. So I did the only reasonable thing and moved to England to live with her.

Two months ago, I decided to make Sarah my future wife, regardless of whether she liked it or not. Luckily when I got down on one knee she said, ”Yes!” Which saves me the trouble of having to buy a club to marry her caveman-style.

I have been dying to tell you guys the news, but I had to fly back to the US to inform my family first, so they didn’t learn of our engagement on-line. Unfortunately, the plane ride resulted in severe back pain for weeks, because I have Cerebral Palsy, so I haven’t been well enough to sit down and write anything longer than a meme.

I am so grateful to Steemit for introducing us, it has changed our lives and we are so lucky that all our saved SBD covered much of our expenses such as airfare, the British Family Visa Application and Sarah’s ring.

Our plan is a simple wedding at the courthouse. We already have our marriage license and now Sarah is attempting to choose a date, which is a challenge due to her weird numerology thing which somehow makes her a jaguar and I happen to be some crappy eagle.

So, now we are about to take the plunge into marriage, I love Sarah so much, she is the best thing that has ever happened to me and I couldn’t imagine life without her.

In the next few weeks we will be Mr and Mrs. Gonzo, God help us!



P.S. If any of you are interested in becoming a sister-wife or a
brother-husband please inform Sarah on her blog, @cathi-xx,
she would love that :P

eheheh

·
·

Thank You!

Gday and congrats.
THIS is why Steemit is such an important link between the new world of decentralisation/crypto/blockchain and mass adoption.
See, its all charts and candles - its about amazing content from amazing people looking to build something for ourselves.
Awesome to hear your news. Best wishes.

·

Thank you so much!

It is crazy, when I first got here I never expected this.

·

Thanks, I almost like charts and candles as much as I like @gonzo ;)

Isn’t that what I told you to do, glad you were listening, and wow this is great.

·

Thanks mate!

·

Thank you!

We always listen to you, now we need to give the judge a minimalist version of our vows, in your honor :)

·
·

Prince Harry has requested you not marry Gonzo on May 19. He is afraid you might upstage his marriage to Meghan.

·
·
·

I can't make any promises,
Sarah is very head strong
and I am too afraid of her to tell her "No!"

·
·
·
·

Ha ha, the prince said that poorly, he meant it’s ok to marry, just not on the same day as his wedding.

·
·
·
·

Thats when you know she is your wife.

·
·

Indeed! Short and sweet.

wow. this is the first couple to be I will see to get married after meeting on steemit, is like you really break record. that great I pray your home will always be a happy one.

@gonzo always make sarah happy and please sarah do likewise because the power of a happy long lasting marriage lies within the couples

stay bless

@valchiz

·

Thank you
I will always try to make her happy
except for when I am cranky :P

·

Thank you we will try!

And the memes only got danker ever since!

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Gonzo. May you have a little gonzo one day meme up the blockchain for you!

·

Thanks man, that means a lot :)

·

You know it! Thanks.

Congrats to you both)

·

Thank You :)

·

Thank you!

Congratulations to @gonzo and @cathi-xx

But I think you should assume @cathi-xx's surname and go with Mr. and Mrs. XX :-)

·

Mrs Gonzo-XX
Why do I like the sound of that?

·

I like your thinking!

How beautiful, definitely the most incredible force that unites us is love, it is a wonderful magic capable of breaking boundaries, distances, spaces and circumstances, your post is very nice. I follow you.

·

Thank you so much!

Que lindo, espero que todos tengamos algo bueno que contar de Seemit en algún momento. me alegra el éxitos de todos he leído mucho para familiarizarme con todos.¡¡¡¡felicidades ....que sea para siempre¡ y que amor llegue hasta el infinito y mas allá.

·

Thank you so much!

I really hope others will meet each other on here too.

·

Grazias senorita!

·
·

! Que rico untarse de tanta dicha ¡

Tan-tan-ta-nan💏🎉

·

This took me a minute
I am a little slow lol

·

Exactly!

Congratulations! How a nice marriage thanks to Steemit. I wish you all the best.

·

Thank you so much!

·

Thank you, it is nice and, at times, a little surreal!

Congratulations @gonzo and @cathi-xx ! What an awesome STEEM success story. 2018 is going to be an epic year!

·

Thank You!
I am so excited for 2018 too,
So far this is the best year of my life.

·

It is indeed and last year was epic too, except for when he disappeared from Steemit for a few months without saying anything, naughty monkey!

congratulations! I actually read one of @cathi-xx post for the first time yesterday and really enjoy the haiku contests. I followed and look forward to seeing more and maybe getting one right. This is the first time I'm seeing your post but added you as well. I wish you both the best of luck, marriage is awesome if you have the right person!!! I got married young, it lasted 3 years, then I found the love of my life and am as happy as can be with a 3 year old son together...the American dream!

On a side note, we also have a dog who just had back surgery. I'm blogging about it and his recovery as a fundraising effort to pay for it. I'd love for you to take a look, maybe give me a vote, or try to pass it along to your large base of followers, thanks in advance!

·

I upvoted your post,
I really hope things work out for your dog :)

·
·

@gonzo, thank you so much for your kind words and your vote, it means a lot to Flops and our family!

·

Thank you.

I hope Floppy makes a full recovery. Cute dog and cute baby too! I'll make a donation next week.

·
·

@cathi-xx Thank you so much for the kind words. Any donation or upvote is so appreciated! Vanessa (my wife) thought I was crazy for trying to do this but the community is really starting to come together for me!

congratulations. I wish you happiness for life. You have more than one child. Do not forget to step on sarah groom's feet :)) @gonzo

·

Thank You!

·
·

You're welcome. I must be grateful. @donkeypong show me this news. @ganzo

·
·
·

I can't believe the support we are getting, it is overwhelming.

·

Thanks for the kind message.

Please help me, because I just became a member of steemit.. 😥😥😢😢😭

·

Welcome to Steemit. Post about what interests you and try to engage with people by starting a conversation with them, to see if you share interests, rather than straight up begging. Take note: Begging can lead to flagging!

·

Welcome To Steemit!

·
·

congratulation,its a great news ,i always pray for your great and lovely married life

·

Thank you so much!

·

Thank you for the kind words and prayers.

Wow, congratulations to both of you @cathi-xx and @gonzo! I met my husband online too, when Friendster was the "in" thing to have. Yes, I feel ancient already LOL. Congratulations and our best wishes.

·

Thank you so much!

I used Friendster back in the day too, it felt ancient and clunky even when it was new lol

·
·

You're welcome 😀

·

Yay for the internet! You might feel old but you look very young.

·
·

That's because my profile pic is from 10yrs ago LOL! Thanks for the compliment!

@gonzo, you're so lucky to find your Princess here.

@cathi-xx congratulations!! I wish you both a blissful married life.

·

Thank You!

I honestly can't believe how lucky I am,
I never imagined that I would meet someone like Sarah on here.

·

Thanks! I feel very lucky :)

Congrats guys!

·

Thank You!

·

Thank you!

Congratulations on your engagement! Being engaged is the best part (at least it was for me!). So much to look forward to! And it's AMAZING that the SBD helped you fund your "life" together so far! What endless possibilities are lain out for you!

·

Thank You!

It is very strange to think that you can meet the love of your life on Steemit and then community covers the expenses just by voting. I am so lucky to have found this place.

·
·

But isn't that going to be such a fun story to tell your future friends/family? And if you decide to have kids...imagine telling that to them! They'd be so motivated by your success and your love <3

·
·
·

I always tell people that she was the girl who hated my poetry lol
But I know exactly what you mean.

·

Thank you!

It is totally amazing that the rise of SBD came right when we needed it, and hopefully the UK visa is granted the first time because my US visitor visa only lasts until early Feb.

I'd be gutted if we had to travel separately because travelling is so hard on him and I even have to persuade him to take the help on offer from airport staff!

Congratulations on the great "how we met" story you will be able to share with your grandkids some day... oh and on the wedding. Congratulations on that too!

·

Thank you so much!

I am so excited and Sarah is somewhat excited too,
so you can probably imagine,
we can barely contain ourselves.

·

Thanks, he loves telling people that we met because I hated his rapey duck story.

We are new(er) to Steemit but wanted to send our heartfelt congratulations! <3 Matthew & Aimee

·

Thank you so much!

I wish you a lot of luck on here,
it looks like you are doing really well.

I just checked out your last post and it is very good,
consider yourself followed!

·
·

Wow, we didn't expext that but thank you very much. We hope we don't disappoint. :)

·
·
·

You already have!
I just looked at your second post and almost called off the wedding :P
Just kidding, you have nothing to worry about lol

You have good content and I would like to support that.

·
·
·
·

LOL! Phew! This is definitely part of why I love the Steemit community; everyone is so supoortive. The added side of humour doesn't hurt either. >D

·
·
·
·
·

ROFL
I am glad you thought that was funny too :)

·

Thank you!

Congratulations! :)) I would like to give you a wedding gift but I have no money.I wish you happiness.You will be happy throughout your life..
@gonzo <3 @cathi-xx and your supporters @tamim

·

No gifts are necessary, but thank you so much :)

·
·

I follow you :)) I'm waiting for your wedding photos.. :))

·

It's the thought that counts and thanks for your kind thoughts.

DAMN this is a cute story. Congratulations Steem Jaguar and Crappy Eagle!

·

ROFL

Thank You!

·

Thanks! He's quite cute for a crappy eagle.

·
·

Haha! His writing is funny and upbeat, if he's like that in real life too I think he's a lovely Crappy Eagle :-)

Congratulations!

·

Thank You!

·

Thank you!

Congratulations @Cathi-xx And @Gonzo! I wish you guys a lot of happiness! :)

·

Thanks, I adore that little monkey!

·

Thank you so much,
I feel like I am in some Hollywood film,
this is so surreal.

I am really glad that Steemit can be apart of our happiness,
because I will be complaining to you guys whenever she gets annoying :P

WAOHHH..... I always dreamt of this, even wrote a post about it. You guys are a dream or wish or forcast or something come true

·

Thank You

When did you post it?

·

Thanks! It wasn't something that i was expecting, but we just sort of click.

Wonderful news! Congratulations to you both and best wishes for a very happy marriage.

Very exciting news. I believe an eagle can swoop down and carry off a female jaguar... so if she keeps hesitating on the date just swoop in! Congratulations!

·

Thank You!

I keep checking the temperature of her feet and they seem warm,
actually these things are burning up,
should I call a doctor?

·
·

Ha ha... no!

·
·
·

·

Thanks, otage.

Oh wow.. congratulations.
A marriage match by steemit.
OK, make sure there's not #joke or #humor here.
Yes.
Then, congratulations again.
BTW, there's a typo (yes, me again)
"plunge into marrage" :-)
Have a safe flight home.

·

Thank you so much!

It is not a joke,
I have fallen victim to her female charms :)

·
·

A victim of love. haha.

·

Thank you!

Sister-wife or brother-husband!!!! AHAH! Congratulations to you both or four... :)

·

ROFL

Yeah...
I always wanted a big family :P

·
·

AHAH! Will you all be moving to Utah?

·
·
·

Utah sounds nice :)

·

Thank you!

His joke doesn't usually stop at four, he toned it down this time, there are usually baby-mammas, "to add drama".

·
·

Waite a few years before you go on one of those, "YOU ARE THE FATHER!" shows. And make a Dtube video of it.

·
·
·

I am already on it :)

Who gave you a laptop?

This is so wonderful. Congratulations

Thank you so much!

Thank you, glad it made you smile!

·
·

🙊

A very big congratulations to you, it feels good to know that you don't only earn or express your thoughts here on steemit but there's also a possibility of meeting your heartthrob here. I'm so happy for you.

·

Thank you so much!

I imagine when Steemit gets bigger there will be a lot more stories like this.

·

Thank you. It was the last thing that I was expecting. I'm kind of standoffish to people online so not entirely cut out for social media, but he's a persistent one.

Very romantic! Congrats!
