I love Sean & Catherine together and the proposal made me cry!
I really, really hope these two have a long and happy life together but I still think it's too soon to tell. All of my serious relationships have started the same way (and I had a few before getting married in my 40s!)-- I think everyone is giddy in love at first -- and optimistic, and hopeful, and you think the other person is absolutely perfect and it will always be like that.
But as with every couple in the first few months, these two really don't know each other yet, and I'm still afraid their differences will pull them apart when the glitz goes away and real life sets in. Even the time they've spent together since the proposal isn't real life -- it's a free extended vacation in nice hotels.
That's why they say to let your love grow through a year of seasons before committing to the future. Hopefully they will do that, but it doesn't sound like it -- especially with a big paycheck waiting for the televised wedding.
That's the frustration with this show, that it's all way too soon to tell whether you're compatible in the long run. Infatuation and lust and excitement and fantasy are the easy part. I just hope that Sean & Catherine make it through all of that and still love each other when the dust settles -- I really do!
BTW -- I was watching Sean's last show with Emily over the weekend and I am struck by how much prettier I think Catherine is than Emily. I'm not partial to the Barbie doll look anyway, but Catherine is such a natural beauty.
