- Wedding: August 2013
I’m super excited so I’m going to recap my whole story: My live-in boyfriend once said he was trying to change jobs. He didn’t want to be a teacher anymore. He said once he had a job he liked, he would probably propose within a year.
It felt like a long timeline but it wasn’t unreasonable either. Well, 2 months after he said that he got laid off. It was a long, depressing, YEAR until my boyfriend just got a job and he starts next week!!!
In the past year, we have had lots of conversations about getting married and he really seems interested and ready, except for the lack of job. I had suggested getting engaged without the job, but he objected, saying he wanted engagement to be associated with happy times in our life and it was hard for us to be happy when he was having no luck looking for work (and also we were penny-pinching so just not a fun time in general).
Anyway, I don’t care so much about getting engaged right away b/c I am just so happy he’ll be working. Yay! But then yesterday he says, “Why do you spend all your time on that wedding website when you could be doing something useful like giving me your ring size?” Squeeeal!!!
I am just extremely happy that he has a job! And, he’s thinking about the ring!
