- Wedding: November 2015
Hi there. I’m not sure I really class myself as waiting but I guess I’m waiting on my ring so here’s my story. I was married before when I was very young and am currently in the middle of divorce proceedings. There was never any need before to need to hurry the divorce along and money was tight due to trying to get myself back on track financially after splitting with my ex husband.
I had a few relationships after my first marriage but no one that I wanted to settle with. I have a two year old son with my ex and found myself needing to be able to tick a lot of boxes on a person before seeing them as a potential forever partner. Then I met Alexis. We met through a dating site and tbh wasn’t looking at it as a serious way of meeting someone, just something to do like havig coffee and a chat in the few hours off of beig a mammy I get. Me and Alexis met for coffee, he ordered one he had never heard of which had way too much cream and he cudnt drink. He was funny, a little bit different and we clicked very quickly. He also has a little boy of 6. We have both had difficult past relationships and know what we want from partners and have fallen madly in love.
And so it began. He is everything I could have imagined and more and I feel so so lucky. We have a lot of fun and enjoy an actie social life. We have a good balance with time to ourselves and a lot of time is also spent with our two boys taking them on little adventures and having family time. Within a few months his son told me that he now had two mammys and his dad had two little boys. he always said he would Marry me some day and I always maintained I would never marry again. One night out of the blue he said he asked my dad how he would feel if he married me, and he asked me to be his wife. We were going out 5 months. I was in slight shock as it was so unexpected ad quite fast but I had no doubts whatsoever that he is the one for me. I wanted nothing less than to be with him for the rest of my days.
We went out looking at rings and I tried one on jokingly that was way over budget but the most amazing ring iv ever seen. the next week he surprised me again by putting a deposit on it. I guess I already am engaged but we have decided not to tell many people bar out closest friends until I had the ring and my divorce is final. The ring is quite expensive and so will probably take 6 months to pay off which will be likely how long the divorce will take so its kind of working out but I just cannot wait to have t on my finger. I do however see the ring as a beautiful gift and as I have already agreed to marry him I already feel engaged. So I’m not sure if I’m a waiting bee or not!
we will be taking things slow and need to spend some time sorting my financial situation and divorce which he is helping me with and so will not be planning dates until all that is done. Although I can’t keep my excitement of wearing his ring at bay, I know the real prize is knowing he wants me forever as much as I want him. I’m a very lucky bee!
