Hi everyone, I am new here. I’m from the UK and been with my SO for almost 6 years. Neither of us were interested in the idea of marriage and the beginning of the relationship and showed our commitment to each other by buying our home & having two beautiful children. However, over the last year I have realised that I would actually like to be married! SO has remained indifferent to the idea and I haven’t pushed it. Anyway, we were watching a TV programme called “Don’t tell the Bride” where the groom organises the wedding with no input from the bride(!!) and he started talking about what he would plan for us. The next week we were out shopping and he stopped at a Jewellers and said “That is the ring I would pick for you” It was perfect and then he said “Let’s go in and you can try it on” I asked why I would do that (?!) and he said “oh just for fun!” So we went in, I tried the ring and fell in love! the sales assistant measured my finger and everything! when we left the shop I laughed and said where are we going next to try on dresses haha and he laughed along with me and that was that…I have since found a card from the jewellers in his jeans pocket (doing the washing!) with my size written on and the code for the ring and he keeps talking about Christmas and how it’s a special time…booked me in for a spa day inc nails and made lots of plans!!! Can I consider myself waiting?????!!!!! Fingers crossed!! Xx
