Terrell Owens is no stranger to controversy, and while his recent headline grabbing news is not nearly the most controversial thing he has ever done, it is turning heads. A report on Bossip.com is stating that Owens is engaged to a woman named Rachel Snider. It is also reported that she works as a postal worker. While some media outlets seem to be focusing on the woman’s occupation as a reasons to questions Owens’ decision, others are discussing the fact that the woman is white while simultaneously being, “plain looking,” as an article from gather.com states it. She is 33 while Owens recently turned 40.
Reports from TMZ indicate that the couple has been dating for a significant amount of time despite the fact that the couple has largely remained out of the public eye until now. Snider has been tweeting comments about Owens since March, so the relationship seems to have at least been going on since that time.
One of the few images recently shared by Snider appears to be from New Years Eve, and she appears to be wearing an engagement ring in the photograph. It is also reported that Owens has already taken the necessary step of obtaining a marriage license and that this step was completed in Los Angeles. Although Owens has multiple children with different women, there have not been any reports to surface that indicate that Snider is pregnant.
The fact that Owens has had a series of relationships where children were produced but no long term commitment ever surfaced makes his decision to become engaged to Snider seem like a pretty serious step forward for him. The fact that he has already obtained the marriage license also makes it appear as though he is very serious about marrying her and this was not simply something he did on a whim. Hopefully the couple will have a lifetime of happiness ahead of them.
