Given what Hugh Hefner endured with Crystal Harris last time, we're sure he takes a sigh of relief every time they get slightly closer to actually getting hitched.

The couple stopped by the Beverly Hills Courthouse today and obtained the paperwork needed to move forward with their planned New Year Eve's wedding ceremony, according to TMZ.

The couple are engaged and plan to get married at the Playboy Mansion. This comes despite Crystal having called off their previous engagement last June, mere days before the ceremony.

Sources have said that the time apart was what Crystal needed to straighten things out, and now the couple is stronger than ever. 

Fingers crossed!
