My boyfriend and I knew early in our relationship that we would spend the rest of our lives together. We are 26 and 27 and ready to move on with the next chapter of our lives: getting married and starting a family.
One of our greatest strengths as a couple is our ability to communicate. However, sometimes, I feel that it can be a downfall. But only in certain situations, such as…
We have talked a lot about when we would like to get married, which is next summer…which means we will be getting engaged sometime this fall. (He is gone for the summer for work).
I already know that we will look for a ring together, after we get married. I have specific taste and he would rather do this together, which is fine by me.
Recently, he accidentally let it slip that “we would have plenty of time to look for a ring in September”. Which pretty much nails down my idea that is planning to propose over Labor Day weekend when we have a trip planned.
I love that fact that we are able to talk about so much together and tackle serious issues, but I’m concerned that our ability to talk so much has taken away the specialness of the proposal. Or at least the surprise.
Here’s my question to you: if you knew that a proposal was coming, did it make it any less special? Is there anything I should say to him to let him know that it’s okay to change his plan or should I just let it be?
