- Wedding: May 2015
I feel like this is the only place I can vent about this so here goes. Fiance and I have been engaged for 3 years we were both married before and he’s Catholic and we are currently waiting to see if our first marriages will be annuled before we can get married. It’s really important to him and his family that we at least try and get married in the Catholic church. We hope to hear something from the church in the next couple of months and were hoping to set a date in October.
Here’s what I came here to whine about…my best friend who has been with her boyfriend for a little over a year just got engaged. I’m thrilled for her because she’s waited a long time to find Mr. Right. She’s Catholic too and hasn’t started on her annulment and her parents are very upset with her for even dating without the annulment. However, for whatever reason she is planning a September (this year!) wedding outside of the church. I have seen so many of our friends get engaged after us and married before us and I always thought this friend would be going for the annulment and would have a long engagement like me. I feel petty for being upset about this but I feel like I’ve waited so long and my day is never going to come. 🙁
That’s it. Whine over. I will continue to put on my happy face and be happy for my friend because when my day does come (soon I hope) I know she will be there for me.
