So my boyfriend and I moved in together in Jan. when he recieved orders that his new duty station was a state away. He was very adament that he did not want to get married until we were both sure it was going to work through a deployment.
He was given some idea that he would be deployed about 6 months later, but I decided it was worth it.
So I moved with knowing I’d be alone in a new city as just a girlfriend (alienated from the military life).
HOWEVER, in Feb. the unit declared they were only sending 1/3 of the guys to the middle east and my guy was not on the list!!
So, with that wrench in our timeline! I asked, Well, where does that leave us?” and to my surprise he says “Why don’t we just get married now!”
This whole engagement was more of a discussion and the planning ensued.
But now, 2 months later, he has not yet proposed!!
I know he has the ring and my friends and family keep asking where’s the ring???
I found this really cute picture on face book in reference to waiting for a proposal:
