The ‘Joan of Arcadia’ star and her funny-hubby just announced they are engaged to be married — but is she making the right choice?

Amber Tamblyn and David Cross first met in November 2008, but did not publicly come out as a couple until later in 2009.  But now after nearly three years of dating, the couple have announced the good news to People — they’re getting married!  But is Amber too young to be with an outspoken, controversial comedian like David? She’s 28 and he’s 47! 

Amber is best known for her work in the fantasy-drama Joan of Arcadia in which she earned Golden Globe and Emmy nominations in 2004.  She also appeared in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, as well as the sequel to the highly-acclaimed teen comedy-drama.

David has been immortalized as Tobias Bluth during his time on the short-lived cult-favorite Arrested Development.  He currently stars in The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret, as well as frequently performs stand-up comedy. David has released four stand-up albums and is a frequent performer at charity events.  However, David is quite the controversial comic, often lacing racist undertones in his jokes as well as known for putting down comedian Larry the Cable Guy and TV personality James Lipton.

Is someone who is a controversial figure like David Cross a good match for Amber?
