Hi! I’m new here. My guy and I have been together for a year and a half and he is the love of my life. I can’t believe it took me so long to find him – but it was more than worth the wait. I’m divorced with a thriteen year old daughter and he is a widower (lost his wife to breast cancer after 16 years together). My kiddo was recruited to find out my ring size a few weeks ago. 🙂 I’m very excited. Any other 40-somethings here?

Welcome to the Hive !!
CONGRATULATIONS… does sound like a Proposal is in the works soon.
There is a good group of 40+ Bees… even some in their 50s and beyond.
Love is a sweet thing no matter when you find it
And for those of us who get a second chance, it is indeed an incredible high.
Enjoy the ride !!
You’ll find lots of support & friendship here along the way.
(Lol, so much so, that many of us stay on long after the Wedding Planning is done)

I’ll be 39 next month so I’m closer to the 40’s than the 30’s. I just got married in August – first time for both of us 🙂 it just took us a long time to find each other!

@dirtlawyer: Yay, thanks for posting 🙂 BTW are you in real estate law? Your username is hilarious.
naptime It’s so true. Most of my friends got engaged/married 10-15 years ago. They are all very happy that I found such a great guy, but they’re way beyond the wedding planning stages themselves. Did not imagine myself as a first-time bride after age 40, but I would have waited another 10 years if the result was meeting and getting to marry this amazing person.

@VanillaCoke: oh – yes. Real estate law. I do a lot of work for the city, and I love it. When I’m not dirt-lawyering, I’m digging in my garden. 😉

I’m not a bride… did that 25 years ago 😀 I found WB while looking for rings. We upgraded for our 25th. It’s such a nice site that I thought I’d hang out.
I have an almost 18 year old son (college next year!) and a 15 year old daughter.

I’m 44 and the wedding is less than 2 months away! Yikes! It’s my second marriage and my FI’s first.
As strange as it is, one of my best friends is getting married three weeks before me. He’s 47 and his FI is 43. It’s his second marriage and her first!
