- Wedding: August 2017
Boyfriend or Best Friend and I have been together for a little over 4 years now, and are starting to seriously look at rings. We plan on being engaged before I go away for school in 2015, and we have to be long distance for 22 months (not the full 22 months, as I will be home for 4 8 week clinicals), we plan on getting married shortly after I finish, so May-June of 2017.
We are looking at a 2-3 year engagement, which I know a lot of people find stupid, but we want to make that commitment before we go long distance, and buy a house together, which will be before the wedding. I also want time as an engaged couple, when we are together, rather than just putting the ring on my finger, and only seeing each other a couple of times before the wedding.
That was super rambly! But, are any other bee’s looking for longer engagements? If so, what are your reasons?
