I will check when I get a chance, but I know I read it, and can't imagine who else would have researched and found that info out, other than Mark Lewisohn.
On page 395 (standard edition) Mark writes in the chapter A Cellarful of Oiks (1 October - 31 December 1960):
'On 28 November, Stu and Astrid exchanged rings and announced themselves engaged.'
I've checked the index and apart from a couple of mentions of them planning to get married, I can't see any other reference to the couple exchanging rings and considering themselves married.
Sorry, I wrote an answer before I realized what book you were referring to! (Cellarful of Oiks made me think of Cellarful of Noise!) My standard edition must be numbered slightly different than yours. My page 395 is the "Year 4, 1961 The Rock Age" chapter.
Anyway, I found the quote on page 382. Also looked in the unabridged edition and there was nothing new. Maybe I read it somewhere else.
