Andy Murray isn't "getting married (yet)"

The lovely thing about Andy Murray's humor (beyond the fact that he'd spell it "humour") is that he maintains a sharp, sarcastic bent without ever being nasty. His penchant for being funny is predicated entirely on a truly droll wit, comic timing, a deadpan demeanor, an understated and oft-monotone voice, and occasional lapses in PR judgment that never cost him any clout or respect. Most of those attributes are tough to convey via Twitter, as many onlookers learned when he offered a tongue-in-cheek response in a social-media Q&A about when he will marry longtime girlfriend Kim Sears. Murray got in a bit of a snag when he posted, "we are getting married just after Wimbledon should be a great day." He retracted his statement later with a similarly winking tweet, but the likes of famous friend and musician Ed Sheeran couldn't help but weigh in on the matter:

Do you look forward to an eventual Murray-Sears nuptial? The Spin loves the pair's knack for outfitting themselves in crisp, sleek Burberry looks and gets a bit lost just thinking about how magnificent the wedding could be, not to mention Kim's bridal gown. Says here they personify their nation's grace and strength, both in their style and in the way they carry themselves—and carry each other, even now in the midst of Murray's tweeted clarifier.
