It seems like lately that whenever I go home more and more people keep asking about when my boyfriend and I are going to get married. We’re 21 and 22 and have been dating for a little more than four years, for frame of reference.
I get so embarrassed when people ask because I have no idea what to tell them.
We have talked about getting married at length, and he seems really excited about it and very often talks about me as his future wife. Recently, a few months ago, he brought up a timeline that we were going to get engaged within a year, and we’ve looked at rings a lot and have even briefly discussed potential weding plans.
But the last talk we had about it he seemed like he changed his mind and said that,”We’ll see where we are in a year.” That obviously made me upset and I told him I didn’t see the point in waiting. I know he has a lot going on with a full-time job and about to finish school, and so do I, so I haven’t brought it up since.
It sucks to feel like everything is up in the air, but I absolutely do not want to put any kind of extra pressure on him with the end of the semester so near.
