Just went to yet ANOTHER wedding where no less than 6 people asked me when SO and I would be married. (He was not there…LDR…he came to the wedding last weekend…) I was frustrated. Came home to walk the dog after the wedding, called SO, was maybe a little angry on the phone with him. Maybe I hung up on him for no reason? Ok that was bad but…
He called me back and said “I’ve been thinking about a lot of the things that you have been saying, and I don’t want to be an old dad, so I think we should start trying to have kids in 3 or 4 years. So, when I move after my deployment, I would want you to come with me, and for us to get married, so we could have a few years being just us before the kids came.” I was freaking out inside!!! I just said “So what would that mean for me as far as an engagement?” He said “You would be…not what you are right now…before I go on deployment in August of next year.”
Bees, I have a timeline. It’s 11 months, sure, but it is real. And I know he means it because he then starting talking about venues. I shit you not. I shit you not. A church and a reception venue that I totally love. Is this the same guy??? For the record, I love his kids timeline and it is exactly what I mentioned to him:) Thank you bees you have pushed me to stand up for myself and talk about my needs and IT WORKED!

@fingerscrossed: I’m a little late on this update but I’m so happy you got a solid time line! I think it’s hard for men to understand that even if they can’t pop the question tomorrow we need to know that they are at least working towards it. I felt peace and joy when I got a time line so I know you’re breathing much easier now. Congrats!
