I have been lurking on this website for MONTHS now, and since I have exciting news that I can’t tell anyone until I tell my parents next week I thought I mine as well post it here ! (:
My Fiance and I have been together for almost 7 years, 2 of those 7 we have been engaged. A few months ago we decided the wedding would be Sept. 5 2015, mainly because I graduate nursing school may 2015 (he graduates from school this apirl). However, several high school friends have started DATING, gotten ENGAGED and then MARRIED all within the two years we have been engaged. Which is not a problem if they wanted to rush into a marriage with someone they barely know, but needless to say it has made me more ansty to get married.
ANYWAYS, last week I mentioned to him that maybe we should get married sooner, and he was all for it!!! SO, I can ver happily say that we are getting married NEXT SUMMER!!! I finally see the light to this long engagement, and I even feel more “engaged” since the wedding is sooner if that makes any sense. Before I didn’t feel like we were really engaged, even though I had a ring on my finger, because it felt so long away that it wasn’t real. But now it really feels real and I am so excited !!!! (:

But please don’t bash on people who get married within 2 years. My FI and I will be married after only being together 2.5 years.

Thanks! Sorry, I didn’t mean to offend you, it is just when you have been waiting for so long and then see other people do it so soon, it can get to you 😛 Plus the people I am refering to were only going out for like 6 months (complete strangers before then) before getting engaged and then 3 months late were married, and all the way up to the wedding day they only seen each other every second weekend. BUT, to each there own I suppose (:

My husband and I got married after 5 months, but thank you for your judgement. It’s definitely exciting to get to plan a wedding sooner and not have to wait as long.

My FI and I are getting married after being together for 13 months, and I know him VERY well thank you.
I understand seeing people get engaged who have been in relationships less time than you can be frustrating, but to say that its someone they barely know is just your opinion. No one ever knows what goes on in someone elses relationship.
I have seen every good and ugly side of my FI and love every bit of him, and I knew that after 4 months.
