- Wedding: April 2015
So this past week, my boyfriend and I have been in the US visiting my family. Before we came here, he told me he wanted to ask for my dad’s blessing on this trip. I was elated, but noticed that each day passed with him not actually asking. Then tonight at dinner, my sister and her fiance asked if we had plans to get married. My SO happily told them about the venue we saw and how we would be getting married there, how we wanted a small wedding, etc. I was happy with his enthusiasm, but he still hadn’t asked my dad. And I knew that was one of the things he felt he needed to do before he proposes to me. But I didn’t bring it up and decided to take a wait and see approach. After dinner, we all hung out for a few hours before my sister, her fiance, and my nephews left. Then later on that night my boyfriend casually came up to me and said, “oh yeah I asked and he said yes”. I calmly told my SO that I was happy my dad was happy for us and liked him. But inside I screamed because this means we are one step closer to being engaged!
