- Wedding: August 2015
I’ve been slightly M.I.A lately that is due to exams and family situations. So here goes:
The other half and I, have spoken about marriage for a long time, I have always been somewhat more hestitant (my parents have had a terrible marriage but I’ll save that for another time) whilst he has always been insistant (in the sweetest of ways).
February 14th 2015 was never an official date, it was more of a… “I need to put a date on Wedding Bee” and I grew to like it. However like I said, it wasn’t official but we kept it in mind. I say this as we already had marriage in mind (hence why I’m here).
Lately things have been … well… horrible! My parent’s divorce has bought out the worst in my parents and my mother (who used to be one of my best friends) has been treating us… like crap! Obviously my OH is quite sick of it and so am I, I understand she’s gone through so much but I cannot justify her actions (screaming at us two nights ago etc) and in all honestly I’m FED UP! I love her, of course I do, she’s my mother but I just can’t take her nonsense anymore! She seems to be somewhat jealous of my relationship (she would never admit that) but I know her well enough to realise that something isn’t right, she keeps lashing out at my OH and it’s just ridiculous!
This led to us getting in a huge argument the other night (after much provocation, one can only take so much!) and this has led to total avoidance of her. The irony is my mum has been a great mum, she has been there for me so many times and honestly I would have NEVER expected all of this from her but the past couple of years she hasn’t treated my OH as he deserves (if you knew how much chaos he has put up with in my family!).
All of this has just prompted us to get married sooner than our “we’ll see when the time comes” approach! Doors have opened up to buy a great house (we will get confirmation soon) and we feel its time although we aren’t officially engaged yet as I want it to be a surprise (he does too) and I want it to be natural not because of all of this situation.
(Sorry for the rant!) but this has led us to choose a new date which is semi-official and will be completely official when we get engaged and this date is… the 6th September 2014!
