Wow. You poor thing. That’s a lot of stress.

My husband and I had a longer engagement (2 years, 4 months) so that I could finish grad school. We’re doing just fine in our apartment. I’d have been devastated if for some reason we couldn’t get married till we had a house because we’ve been married almost a year and we still aren’t there yet.

If you have weirdo in-laws like I do, it’s a good idea to get a house first. That’s what Fiance did. He prolonged the engagement cuz of that. I was pissed but in the end I am SO GLAD he did that cuz his parents aer totally psycho! (They are separated yet they can unleash a wrath like nobody else). I wouldn’t have liked the possibility of EVERRRRRRRR having to live with either of them for even a short while. Not even to save up money for a house later. And instead of renting, it was wiser to just purchase a house at that time due to low home prices.

So this could all feel like a pain in the ass right now but after you actually get a place and start living in it, you might think VERY DIFFERENTLY abt this idea. i know I did. And believe me, I was ANGRY, FRUSTRATED and everything else in between cuz all I wanted was to be engaged/married to my wonderful man! I didn’t care abt having to rent an aptmnt, etc. But I can FEEL the difference that one decision made.
