Never thought this day would come, but I'm jealous of my mother. Rant.

@Theonetime:  Nah, I agree with you.  I’d be worried and annoyed – not so much jealous.  

If your date is right you’re saying your mom has decided to plan her wedding for 3 months before yours?!  That’s just mean – if she had decided to get married in August 2013 (also worrisome but fitting with the whirlwind) I’d be less offended.  The fact that she has chosen to take over your whole planning window with her whole wedding is really not very considerate of her.

@Theonetime:  Hm it seems as though this is less about the time they dated and more about your feelings of jealousy. do you trust your mother to make the right decision? are you truly concerned she is “rushing” or do you feel jealous because your SO and you aren’t in that situation?

I think that this may be triggering a lot of emotions for you. Jealousy, perhaps anger at your own situation . Do you want to get engaged? I understand that it’s very activating, and i can imagine it would be! But if its not related to your mom (after some soul searching) try to be there for her during this happy time. 

Good luck , i know it’s not easy ;-/

When you’re longing for an engagement of your m=own it’s difficult to hear about anyone else’s- let alone your mothers. In all honesty, I wouldn’t be jealous of her as much as I’d be concerned. I think that in your situation I would also hold off celebrating until I saw a ring. I hope she isn’t getting her hopes up.

As for your engagement, it’ll come. I’m a true believer that everything happens for a reason. It’ll happen when it’s suppose to happen and it’ll be a beautiful time for you.
