Truly an amazing girl, wishing her all the happiness she deserves!

Midvale, UT

Congratulations to the couple, but I'm wondering if the media should really be getting involved in this part of her life. Doesn't seem right to me.

Somewhere in Time, UT

Good for you, Elizabeth. I hope Mitchell finds out about it immediately. Living well is the best revenge!

Salt Lake City, UT

Very happy for the couple to be. True proof that the best revenge is living well!

Who cares anymore? Her story is finished, justice was served, I don't really care about it anymore.

Best wishes to you. And yes, you have the right to privacy so I hope everyone will respect that. You are amazing, Elizabeth. I hope you have a wonderful marriage, and not let anything that happened during those awful months have a negative effect on your new relationship. Forward...always forward.

Salt Lake City, UT

I agree... The media should not probe into her every aspect and move of what she does in life.. Leave her alone.

Henderson, NV

Best wishes to you, Elizabeth. Congratulations!

I just agree with everyone else. It makes my day, I hope she has a wounderful life.

I hope we will here from her often, as she is that type of peson that stays in the media. In her case its in a good way.

Adjusting to a Marriage is hard and the more baggage you bring it the harder it is. In the end it is all in how you handle things.

What matters most is family.

I wish them both a long and happy life.

Kaysville, UT

You are so blessed to have parents and family that have adored you since birth and went to the ends of the earth to find you. Our prayers were answered that day in 2003 when you were finally identified. Our prayers will be with you as it takes everyone on earth and Heaven to get us through this life. Thanks for all your work since then and example to us and for us. Your work will bless others and your will and desire to live is a sacred blessing you have shown to us and is possible for us also. God bless you and your family.

Venice, CA

I'm so very, very happy for her. Let's all step back, now, and allow her to live a peaceful, fulfilling life.

Springville, UT

@Cats and @Euroskeptic

Yeah. Same person. Living well is the best revenge? Whatever.

Same goes for the comments hoping that the media will respect their privacy. Really? Think for a moment. Who told the Deseret News about the engagement? A little bird?

Beaverton, OR

Best wishes, hope and happy years to come. Congratulations to Elizabeth and her future husband!

Iowa, Iowa

Very glad to hear about her upcoming wedding. Best wishes

Bountiful, UT

Congratulations!!!! She deserves the best of the best!

Now, if everybody just forget about the creep on jail and dedicate this board to congratulate to her, it would be awesome, don't you think?

I think we should all forget about that guy. That will be the best punishment ever.

Johnson72: "The media should not probe into her every aspect and move of what she does in life.. Leave her alone."

I would agree wholeheartedly, Johnson, except for:

"Elizabeth Smart is engaged to marry, a family spokesman confirmed Friday. A summer wedding is planned, said Chris Thomas of the Salt Lake public relations firm Intrepid Group."

If the family "spokesman" from a local "public relations firm" makes the announcement, seems like it wasn't your basic intrusion into personal affairs...

Yakima, WA

I agree with Utah Girl. Thanks for sharing the good news. Take your Mom's advice and make sure your marriage is a path with your eyes looking forward. You deserve the best this life and marriage has to offer. My prayers are with the new husband, he's going to have to stand tall to keep up with this girl. She might be only 24, but has the experience and wisdom past her age.

Best wishes Elizabeth, continue to make us proud.
