My cousin’s wedding was yesterday, and I was worried that the jealousy monster was going to show, where I really wanted to be happy for them.
It turned out it was a beautiful day, and I really enjoyed watching them get married. I shed a few tears, especially seeing my cousin cry when he saw his bride for the first time. It was a very happy day.
At the reception, a total of 7 people asked if SO and I were getting married next (actually, most of them said something along the lines of “I’m excited for your wedding next”). So I got really excited, because people were expecting us to be the next married, even though we’re not engaged yet.
I also wondered how SO would react to these things – whether he’d be happy, neutral, or angry because there’s too much pressure on him. Well, he reacted by hugging my twice as much, telling me I’m beautiful and being excited. So that made me three times as excited, because I feel like now that he’s seen a wedding, he wants to be married more now.
Anyway, that’s my rambling about last night. I’m really glad that I was able to see my cousin get married. It really was a lovely night.

I am so excited for you that it went well. I was in a wedding and thought it would be awful but really enjoed it too. Maybe having your BF see a wedding will inspire him!

@bluefrog33: I think it has inspired him, which makes me really excited. The wedding was the first I’d been too since I was 8, so it was a bit different than I thought, but it was lovely, and the bride was amazingly beautiful. But the poor girl was suffering morning sickness too!

Yay! I remember that you were a little worried about this wedding, I think you chatted about it on the SIU pact. Good job! And how exciting that your SO was acting so wonderful too
ETA: Oops…I see you actually had a seperate post about it haha! Sry!

Good to hear it went well. I remember how concerned about the whole event.
And that your man is on side now. That is a big deal.
I think that there is a stage in every man’s life where he says his friends & family members around his age getting married and being happy, so he comes to accept the concept more readily.
Sounds like you guys are in that place in life now.

@veryberry13: Heh, that’s okay! I made the post on the waiting board. I’m really happy with the how happy my SO was with wedding talk!
@This Time Round: Thank you! I think he’s been ready, but not so ready that he’d do it right now. Not that we’d be getting married right away anyway, because I need to finish my degree and move out first! But a few years ago, he’d brush off any comments, and now he seems genuinely happy that people are picking us to be next.
