Ashley Biden engaged to be married

While speaking in Wilmington, Delaware last week Vice President Joe Biden referred to his “future son in law” several times, but no one knew yet if his only daughter Ashley was actually engaged. Well, now it’s official.

"Ashley recently got engaged and the Vice President, Dr. Biden and their entire family are thrilled," said Jill Biden’s communications director, Courtney Diesel O’Donnell.

Ashley has been dating Dr. Howard Krein for a little over a year and the couple officially got engaged in September. Ashley is a social worker and Krein is a physician specializing in Otalaryngology and Facial and Reconstructive Surgery.

    Earth shaking News? No! Nice human story? Yes! I imagine if alcohol and jail were involved, some of you would complalin if it wasn't in the news! Let this family enjoy their moment! For everyone one these types of stories, there are 50 others about death, destruction, and marriages that last, oh I dunno, 72 days? Calm down people!
