    What?! Good for them! Hasn’t he not long been broken up from a previous engagement? All the best to the happy couple =]

  • Elly

    woow! congrats!!

  • SM

    Wow. I swore he just announced he was engaged to another woman and had to go and check–yup, this is his second engagement in less than two years.

  • lola

    2 engagements and 1 wedding in 2 years, getting engaged the same moment your “best-friend” do, and being to ashamed to acknowledge publically the woman he’s sooooo in love with he can’t wait to marry when they were dating. HAve you lost your mind Jared ????

  • Al

    Way to go, Jared. Hope you get a good divorce lawyer!

  • Juju

    What happened to that other woman he was engaged to? Wasn’t he just engaged to that girl he was with for several years?

  • M

    I’m not happy about this engagement. I think he’d be happier if you were with Jensen! There is no place in an engagement of this.

    Ok, Jared! Keep it up you go away!

  • Alex

    Dude moves quickly.

  • J

    Jared and Genevieve make a gorgeous couple and I hope they are very happy together, they’ve been together over a year so its not like they’ve just suddenly got engaged after a couple of months.

  • wow

    I am not saying they’re not going to be happy or anything, but Jared sure made engagement looks like a joke! way to go Jared!!!

  • liz

    can’t some of you just be happy and stop being negative its not your life

  • wow

    well said!!

    Congratulations to the happy couple!

  • cough

    so… will there be a dual wedding since the boys are both engaged… at practically the same time???

    **sniff sniff** I smell a bad PR move

  • LOL

    Um. Okay? She still screwed up Ruby for me.

    Hmmm…were these engagments a surprise for the other guy? Did they know about the other one proposing? Maybe they got mixed up and proposed to girls instead of each other. I wonder who Jared and Jensen lost a bet to.

  • Ozzie

    I’am happy for the couple. I guess the rumors were true. I ‘am just shocked that it’s so soon after he broke up his engagement with Sandra McCoy. I also hope that he really loves Geneive and that it’s not a fast wedding…cause there are also rumors that Gen is pregnant???

  • Sofia

    Thank you so much! This is exactly what I was thinking. Don’t get me wrong I want for him to be happy always. But this feels so weird. Jensen and Danneel dated for over three and a half years before he asked her to marry him. I find this more than just a tad rash. But I guess he’s old enough to know. So, congrats to them!

  • timnatasha

    Да ладно вам, мальчик просто очень хочет жениться)

  • Ray

    Aw, Jared. Really? Not necessary, dude. What’s the rush? They’d been together for barely a year before he asks her to marry him? Come on Jared, I always thought you were smarter than that! If there’s some reason why you think you need to do this, there isn’t. You’d have a *ton* of support should you choose to, y’know, not go through with this… for whatever reason.

  • Connie

    Haha. Congrats. They live in my building and were very cute in the elevator.

  • shannanigans

    I’m very happy for both of them! Jared is a catch. Let’s just be happy for them. No one can guarantee that a marriage will work, that’s why you have to work at it. Jared seems like a hard-working kind of guy. I can only hope that some crazy fangirls don’t try to mess up their happiness on the big day. CONGRATS!

  • Ray

    @Connie: Um. What building? Jared owns his own houses, both in Vancouver and LA.

  • shannanigans

    That’s awesome! I’d love to see him in person, but I get very shy in those situations. I think they are adorable together.

  • Roonie

    @Lame: jesus, i have no intention going to freaking idaho to watch them get married. I miss Sandra McCoy…

  • Melody1836

    congratulations to the happy couple !!
    I hated Ruby but I’m sure Genevieve must be a nice girl, I don’t think Jared would date a shallow creature, he seems like such a sweet down-to-earth guy
    I hope they’ll live happily ever after :)

  • Alex

    Sorry Jared. You can get engaged as many times as you feel necessary, but we still think you’re gay! Only difference is, WE don’t see a problem with it.

  • Megan

    Hello, world. This is common decency speaking. Jared and Genevieve are actors, not your own personal playthings. They’re human beings, too, you know. Cut them some slack. Personally, I’m very happy for them. And this coming from one of the greatest Sam/Jared girls of all time. He’s a big boy, he can make his own decisions. We, the fans, have no right to be involved in their personal life. I’ve always appreciated Jared’s and Jensen’s desire for privacy, especially in dating. They don’t publicize their relationships, which, to me, shows a certain genuine aspect to them. They’re dating for love, not for attention. I love that about them. Jared is such a decent, sweet, and loving guy; not to mention intelligent. I trust him to make the right decision here. I don’t know much about Genevieve, but from what I can gather, she also seems like a very sweet girl. I don’t think Jared would date anyone less than that.

    Long story short; either be happy for them or shut the hell up. Because, honestly, it’s none of your business anyway.

    Jared Padalecki, You are making a big mistake.

  • jordo

    ha ha. j isn’t gay, never has been, never will be. doesn’t have anything against it but he just ain’t. congrats jared and genny!

  • martin

    So, it was him that was engaged twice! I wondered, if I was confusing him with Chad Michael Murray, as for engagements. And the wedding is in a month already? Must have knocked her up! Or does anyone have a better explanation for the rush?

  • jordo

    @Ray: they have an apartment in nyc too, bud

  • xxx

    Cool? Didn’t see this coming but congrats.

  • Lyn

    @Megan: Well said.

  • just me


    Well said. Total agreement here, from another huge Sam/Jared fan.

    And in my opinion, a year is plenty long enough to know if you want to be together for the rest of your lives. Jared and Sandy had a long distance relationship for 3 years while he worked almost constantly. It was bound to take its toll. Gen was in Vancouver working alongside Jared for most of last year, they spent the entire summer touring Europe together, and even now it seems like they see a lot of each other between Vancouver and LA. By now they would know if they’re right for each other, so why should they wait? Just to make fandom happy? I don’t think so.

    I wish them all the best. :)

    @jordo: Right *wink, wink* Well hey, should you see or talk to him again, let him know that if he decides to stop hiding behind his friends, PR and fake engagements and wants to come out he’ll have my support back. And the support of a lot more.
