Gilbert Arenas Is Getting Married

Apologies, ladies: the NBA's quirkiest superstar is officially off the market. We found out yesterday that Gilbert Arenas has gotten engaged, to his long-time girlfriend and the mother of his two children, Laura Govan. Normally I wouldn't be encouraging any NBA player under the age of 30 to tie the knot, but since the relationship has gone through seven plus years of ups and downs, I suppose the two know what they're getting themselves into.

Gilbert gave the Post a gratuitous and innocuous quote on the matter:

"Life is about growth and getting smarter about the choices we make," Arenas said in an e-mail. "Being a husband and father will require both of those!"

Indeed it will. The couple has had an on-again, off-again history, with a breakup as recently as November of last year. And when you consider the fact that they overcame a messy paternity suit just a couple of years ago, the marriage is likely to withstand just about anything. And hey, if nothing else, it'll give Gilbert something to do while he's not playing basketball over the next few months.
