My friends mainly got married one to three years ago, so we’re now onto attending the weddings of my boyfriend’s closest friends. We fight at every other wedding, triggered by a combination of too much wine and my own impatience about not being engaged yet.

Police quickly called a SWAT team, but canceled the call when they arrived and didn’t find a shooter.

He is from England, and they have a real problem with the idea of him settling in the Midwest. Also, he hasn’t had the best history with women; they usually walk all over him.
