Well, well… wonders never cease.

Simon Cowell is about to tie the knot… And it’s about time! The American Idol and America’s Got Talent alum is engaged to his long-time lady Lauren Silverman. Simon and Lauren have been an item since 2004 and even have a son, Eric.  He dropped to one knee and popped the question on Christmas Eve during a vacation in Barbados, where they first met.

How long have you waited for your significant other to pop the question? Should there be a cut-off time?

Do you have to be married or can you go without the ring?
