Corey wants to marry in the event she faces deportation
Corey Feldman proposed to girlfriend Courtney Anne last weekend while celebrating their fourth anniversary. The actor admitted he was so nervous that he ultimately opted for a simple note as opposed to a fancy speech.
Interestingly, the reason for his engagement is partly due to fears she might get deported to Canada when Donald Trump takes office.
Corey shared with People magazine: “I was of course a bit nervous, as any man will admit, you never truly know what a woman is thinking. So as much as I assumed she would be happy and say ‘yes,’ there’s always that insecure part of my brain that regresses immediately to my childhood and thought maybe not.
So I kinda chickened out and did a written proposal by writing a note with two check boxes, one for yes and the other for no. Of course there was a ring in there with the note. Luckily she said ‘yes!'”
And the 27-year-old model was actually surprised by the proposal, as they had never been fans of marriage. In this case, however, Corey felt the need to legalize the relationship as Trump is looking to reinforce new immigration laws.
He explained: “She was very surprised, excited and started crying. She was surprised because we had both been so anti-marriage since we met. But seeing as she’s Canadian and with Trump coming in, we didn’t want to risk being separated by new immigration laws.
We both know that we make a good team, and don’t want to be separated for any reason. So this is the best decision to protect our relationship.”
And the actor says he’s looking forward to getting married without dragging it out, consisting only of a small, secret ceremony.
“We are planning a small, secret wedding just for family, very soon. We will likely have a big public wedding for friends and media to attend within a year.”
