Former Rhode Island Congressman Patrick Kennedy, son of late Senator Ted Kennedy, is engaged to be married. Sean Richardson, a former aide to the 43-year-old bachelor said he got engaged Saturday in Rhode Island to sixth-grade schoolteacher Amy Petitgout. No wedding date has been set. Last month, Kennedy told the Associated Press he was living in New Jersey with his girlfriend. Recalling the title of his father's book, "True Compass," he said Petitgout is his compass. She has a 3-year-old daughter, Harper, from a previous marriage. Kennedy decided last year not to run for a ninth term in Congress.
