- Wedding: July 2016
And I’m sort of dreading writing it out… :/
The good news is that I was able to talk to my SO last night about ring preferences. Not too many details, but very basic likes and dislikes. And we discussed the budget and it seems like we’re on the same page.
And then we talked timelines. My SO has always been incredibly bad with times and dates. A year ago he told me 1-2 years to get engaged. Well yesterday he said a year and a half after he moves out. We’re hoping he moves out this summer, but a year and a half after that?!
He’s always told me he wants to move out first. So that’s fine. Totally on board. But when he previously told me after he settles in, I was thinking 3 months, maybe 6 months. But a year and a half!?
The funny thing is that I got emotional even before we started talking about timelines. We were just talking about marriage and rings and such and I just started tearing/crying out of nowhere. Like seriously, i have no idea why, even though I was trying to pay a lot of attention to my thoughts lol Nothing bad was coming up. And he even said, “this is what you wanted, we’re finally talking about it” lol Which is true, and I’m really glad we did.
He did say a couple of sweet/nice things. Like that he can support us, even though I’m not financially stable, and that we could potentially have a longer engagement if we wanted to do it sooner. But it still kind of sucks. Being in grad school sucks in relation to making life things happen.
