Adam: I can’t believe you’re getting hitched!
Leon: Why not?
Adam: Hey, there’s no need to get defensive. I just mean you were always dating around. Didn’t think you’d ever tie the knot.
Leon: Oh. Well, to tell you the truth, I wasn’t sure this day would come but Tiffany is something else.
Adam: She really is. And you seem really happy, man.
Leon: I’m over the moon! Can’t wait to see her walk down the aisle.
Get, as you may already know, is one of those verbs in the English language that have an infinity of possible uses! Since our dialogue was about an engagement, how about we check out other related expressions that include “get”, to describe new relationship statuses? The collocation “get hitched” that you saw in the dialogue is a slang version of “get married”:
George got married last spring.
Can you believe that Angela is getting married? She always said she didn’t like the idea.
I told you those two would get married!
Before the actual marriage, people usually “get engaged”, which is when one person asks the other to marry them, and they become pledged to be married:
Elizabeth is expecting to get engaged this year.
When did you guys get engaged?
They got engaged in December and are going to get married in July.
And another change in status that is described with get is “get divorced”, a change that is usually tougher to talk about:
Ryan and Jill are actually happy about getting divorced.
I thought they would never get divorced.
She seems to be feeling well after she got divorced.
Get can have this sense of a sudden change of status, in many other different cases.
There is a big chance that you’ve heard this expression before, it comes up quite often in series. This simple but interesting collocation is a special way of saying that someone is extremely pleased and happy about something!
I just heard that I got my dream job, I’m over the moon!
Jake is over the moon about the new house.
She was over the moon when she heard the result.
There are many expressions in English that describe the idea of getting married. Let’s take a look at some of the most common and fun ways to say that, including some of the ones we saw in our dialogue:
Tie the knot
Walk down the aisle
Say I do
Take the plunge
