This is one of those days when I feel that my overthinking is responsible for my mood swings. My boyfriend and I have been together for 4.5 years now. Both of us have a combined monthly income of around 70000 rs per month (thats around $1300) which is not all that impressive given the fact that both of are MBA. We are 24 are very much in love with each other. The thing is, I do not want to get married by 26-27. Nor does he. But I always bring up the wedding topic time and again which after some time irritates him. I will confess that I get real obsessed with wedding topics. We are both Indians where couples are not very open about their relationship status with their parents. His family has a faint idea and my mom knows about us. The only reason he is not telling them completely is because he wants to be more financially independent before taking such a step. I totally agree with him because if such a step is taken in a haste then future financial problems can penetrate your love life too. I too have loans. I pay half my monthly salary as my EMI. At the same time my parents bring up the marriage topic and I have to stall them by some reason or another. He loves me to bits despite my nagging and so do I. We have stuck together in good times and bad and he is determined to marry me and have kids. All i want to do is to be happy with the ways things are. For Eample, If he is tired and not talking properly to me I think that there is something going on in his mind thats related to me. Absured right? I know I should stop acting like that. he himself tells me that I am pretty and confident and he aint going anywhere so I should not worry. Please help me get rid of this crazy mindset. I would really appreciate some good advice from all you ladies. I want my old confident self back that both He and I loved.
