I have three more years of college and an internship until I’m working. I’ve finished two years of college already. My Fiance has his degree and works 60 plus hours a week to make sure that we are able to maintain our way of living. We also have to children together. We are supposed to get married next summer.
Recently I’ve been feeling like I would really like to have something of my own to bring to the marriage. Like an accomplishment that shows I can carry my own. Does that make sense?
Fiance is fine with doing which ever I choose.
Another plus to waiting is that I will qualify for better grants. That is really just the icing on the cake though.

@TequilaSunrise: i put my wedding back when i fell pregnant, I cancelled all together when i lost my little one 🙁 and then started to re plan when i got my head back together. i then cancelled again (the one that should take place this year) due to health problems I am detirmined my wedding will go ahead next year 🙂 even if i have to cancel the big day plans and just take my folks and fi’s folks to a registry office (court house in US i think) and then go for a meal with just our parents. i will marry him finally
i suppose my personal goal is to have more children 🙂

Thanks for the replies. We have already been together for 6 years so I feel very ready to get married. I just have this nagging feeling that I want my degree first. People think I’m petty to want that though since we have been together so long. The only time I wish we were married yesterday is when i do things for the kids school or whatever and I still don’t have the same last name as them. Other than that I’m ok waiting..

@TequilaSunrise: there’s nothing wrong with waiting until you finish your degree. That may even be the easiest way because you can focus on school without worrying about trying to plan a wedding.
