- Wedding: October 2015
Hi everyone! I’ve been looking on wedding bee for advice (and ering pictures) for such a long time. It’s time to officially sign up! Especially since I think I could use some advice from an outsiders perspective.
Just a little background – I am 25 years old, my FI is 26. We began dating in high school making our (dating) anniversary over 9 years ago. We moved in together about 2 years ago. He propsed in July and we have our wedding set for next October (2015). I cannot wait to finally be his wife! BUT we are both still in school. I graduated with a bachelor’s and am now in my 2nd year of pharmacy school. I know graduate students get married all the time. However from what I have read (and seen) I feel like the other spouse always has a stable job. My FI never went to college and instead decided to continue his high school job as a caterer. Before we moved in together I barely saw him – he would work from say 1pm-12am. When we did move in together his schedule gave me many nights alone, which I hated. Fast forward to today and he works morning hours as a caterer. He also went back to school taking night-classes to pursue radiography. He’s home more and is even trying to pursue a different career. I am super proud of him.
That brings me to my problem – should I wait until after his school finishes (hopefully 2018) to get married? I am worried that if he doesn’t make it through the radiography program 1) I’ll be home alone everynight and 2) we will never be able to move anywhere. I don’t want to doubt him though. Also that would make our wedding 15 years in the making, which seems ridiculously long to me.
I love him so much and I really want to marry him. Do you guys think this is the wrong time?
**disclaimer: I never had these thoughts before Saturday, when my parents put them in my head.
