How am I doing after the news of Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom’s engagement, you ask? Thanks for checking in on me during this trying time. The news that Bloom is officially off the market (again) is tough to swallow, but also, it feels good to see my girl Katy get the happy ending she deserves. She’s been through it all — from a 14-month marriage to Russell Brand to an on-again-off-again romance with John Mayer, and it’s great to finally see her with a stable, loving man who treats her right. Katy Perry's quotes about marriage and divorce are a great reminder that the tough times can make us stronger in the end.
Bloom and Perry announced their engagement on social media on Feb. 15 with a gorgeous selfie of the two of them showing off Perry’s new engagement ring. The Valentine's Day-themed pic, with red heart balloons on the ceiling behind them, was romantic and full of pure joy. Although their relationship has had its ups and downs, it looks like they’re ready to settle down for the long haul. Katy has been vocal over the years about how she views marriage and divorce, which is a fascinating indicator of how might approach this commitment to Bloom.
