Hi! This is the best website EVER! Well my bf and I have been together for 3 months and have already decided we want to get married. We picked out a ring and are looking into wedding ideas…we’re both 27 with great jobs. Thing is he lives 4 hours from me and the distance is killing us (even though he made a promise when we first met to come see me every weekend..and has kept it). We want to get engaged so bad but we both feel our families will say it’s too soon to talk about marriage. We are going to wait til we hit the 7-8 month mark then he will officially get my fathers blessing and ask me. I am so excited as is he. I just can’t help but feel there will be some negative feelings when we do this regarding time. My enitre family loves him to pieces and his family loves me. Anyone else in the same boat?

Welcome to WeddingBee!!!
You’re definitely not alone, on either the waiting or the distance front! You’ve already found the waiting board, but we’d love to see you around the (new, thus not yet linked on the main page) LDR board as well ~ http://boards.weddingbee.com/board/long-distance-relationships

welcome! with regards to the time you’ve been together…. yea you might get a few eyebrows but who cares? prove them wrong! Lots of people get married after years of dating and get divorced. my MOH’s parents got engaged after 6 weeks and they’re together 35+ years later. Whatever works for you works. 🙂

Welcome to Weddingbee!!
And to the waiting board!
Like Corgi said – don’t worry about the time you’ve been together! When it’s right, it’s right, and only the two of you can know that! Yeah, you’ll probably get a few eyebrows, but eh … if it works for the two of you, then that’s all there is to it!
Also – I’m in an LDR myself – it’s tough – but you can do it!

Wecome! I personally am not in that situation but as cheesy as it sounds I’m a strong believer in “love at first sight”. My grampa met my gramma on a double date (they were with different people) and he knew she was “the one” right away. He proposed to her that night and they got married a week later. They just celebrated their 40th anniversary in October and are the happiest people I know. Best of luck to you guys!

Welcome to the Hive! Yes, in a similar situation. We’ve only known each other for 9 months and have been “officially” a couple for 4 or 5 of those months. So, our mothers were somewhat surprised that we decided to get married. Especially since we both said we’d never get married again (those starter marriages left some horrible bruises). But, we know now that we’re each others perfect life partner and we are going to make it official and get married. I think Mister is holding off the “official” proposal for the 1 year mark, so not to get all those questions. Being a older Bee, I really don’t care if people think it’s too soon. I know it is not and can’t wait to announce it to the world that we’re getting married. Now… if only I can get that ring for Xmas or New Year’s or Valentine’s or my birthday. LOL!! I’m certain it will happen in May 2010 though. I just have this feeling he’s planning something.

I totally agree, don’t worry about the time, if it’s right it’s right. My aunt and uncle dated for 6 months before they were married and are still happily married 31 years later :D… I am also one of those older brides and I don’t really care what others think… LOL

Oh yea..we are both in the mentality where we have had enough time to realize what we want and don’t want in a partner.
