Globe celebrates Youklis engagement, suggests it won't last

Is today's Globe article on the future Mrs. Kevin Youklis a case study in credulity or a masterpiece of understated snark?

You be the judge. The headline writer concluded that the story--written by Mark Shanahan--was about how Enza Sambataro will provide a "strong foundation" for Youklis. But the piece was packed with details that suggest otherwise. Some examples:

--"The wedding will be Sambataro's second since her five-month fling with [Ben] Affleck ended in 2004. She was briefly married to a South Shore car dealer with whom she had a child."

--"Describing herself as "wild" in high school and "far from a cheerleader" in college - she took courses at Boston College but did not graduate - Sambataro admits she used to be more madcap than mature. "The reason I don't drink anymore is because I did all my partying under the age of 21," she says. "Among my friends, I would always be the first one to do something over the top and crazy."

--On a recent afternoon, while the couple was sitting in the kitchen eating lunch with [her son] Mikey, Sambataro was asked when she and Kevin are getting married. "It's a day-to-day thing," she said, laughing. "Saturday, we weren't getting married because Kevin had too many margaritas. But it's back on now. Right, Kev?"

Good luck, kids.
