Oh I was totally feeling this before we were engaged because the only reason we aren’t married yet is because we are living on one income while I am at school.

It is extremely frustrating knowing that what you are doing with your life is stopping you from getting what you really want (marriage).

We now decided with help from our parents that we will be able to get married while I am in school.

I understand your frustration! Hopefully it will come soon!

We’re not married yet because he’s finishing a contract for his work before he comes to live with me (October 2010). Sadly neither are we engaged, but I think that will be different by the end of the year – it had better be if he wants to get married when he says he does!

We had to wait for a year and a half because we were moving across the country, changing jobs and buying a new house, and wanted to have enough time to make the planning fun and not overwhelming, and more importantly to save up some actual money so we weren’t serving our guests hot dogs!

It was frustrating at the time and I wish it could have been shorter…but at least you’ve found your true love and you’re doing the waiting together. 🙂

Me! Over here!!

He’s in the military, and lives in NC.  I live up in CT now and I’ve only been working for a year since I graduated.  I’m living at home because I pay a ridiculous amount of money in student loans every month, but it means I can’t really save much.  To top it off, my job will pay for me to go back to school, which I really want to do!  Moving to be with him doesn’t seem like it’s in the cards for a very long time and he can’t move up here for obvious reasons.  Frown  Doesn’t mean I don’t want to be engaged now, sigh…

Um, YES! He’s waiting til after he’s done with Christmas season at his church and his grad school applications are finished to get engaged, when really I’d marry him at the courthouse when both our parents are here next month (mine are coming up to visit and his live in the city we both live in). Life is so inconvenient!

We’re just having a rough time saving any money, since he’s only PT and my FT job only pays but so much. We just can’t justify setting a date and paying for anything wedding related in our situation right now. But he’s hoping to get chosen for a fulltime position in the next month and I’m applying for a promotion at the end of October. *fingers crossed* Maybe then we can move forward.

So I totally understand the frustration of waiting. ugh!
