I was smiling reading this. Good for you don’t let them get to you with how they think you should be feeling. You know where you’re at as a couple. That’s all that matters.

It’s fantastic that you know exactly what you want, and that you know better than to change what’s right for YOU just because of what other people are doing.

However, just as a teensy tiny warning – there might not ever be a time when everyone’s attention will be on your wedding.  Once your friends get married, they’ll likely start having babies.  No way to prevent someone’s pregnancy or birth from falling around the time of your engagement/wedding.  So it’s probably a good idea not to get too invested in that particular dream.

For about 2 years before we got engaged, every time we got together with our married friends…. my fiance used to get that all the time. from friends and from people we didn’t even really know. So totally insulting.

@LaviniaRose2013: It’s the same thing with pregnancies too. This year alone, there must 10 pregnant people I know including my sister in law. We’re taking steps towards pregnancy, but aren’t there yet.

yeah, i always hate it when people project crap like that onto me. uh, do you even know me? or our situation? no? then step back.

i really hate that because it heaps more pressure onto the mister which isn’t fair to him. we know where we stand and i wish people would respect that. i know they mean well but man, you’re ruining it for us!

Hehehe, yeah, sometimes people are silly that way. You sound like you’re handling it well.

DH and I ran into a friend of a friend’s mother about 8 months before our wedding, and when we told her our wedding date, she went, “Well it’s about time!” in a tone that implied we had been waiting to get married since the Stone Age or something.

Uh, excuse me for wanting to hold off until I’m done grad school, and not planning a wedding during the freaking Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games when booking anything would be a misery.

I’ve never understood why some people will just throw practicality out the window over a milestone as big as getting married, but to each his own I guess.

I totally understand!!!  I’m still in college and almost all my friends got engaged within the past 3 years.  Mine and FI’s relationship is significantly longer than any of the other people’s when they got engaged.  I actually had someone ask me to my face, “Why aren’t you jealous that everyone’s engaged and you’re not – I would be so mad since yall have dated the longest?!”  UGH!!  I wasn’t upset – the timing was no right for us financially at all and we both knew that.  

The *only* thing that matters is that you two are on the same page – brush it off – it seems like you’re doing a good job of that already !!  πŸ™‚
