I can’t wait to not post the shit out of my engagement. To each their own though. There are some things that I will keep just between me and my bf…this goes for future ultrasound pictures as well.

It would mean more to me to have people ask to see personal pictures like that rather than post them on various social media outlets and get obligatory ‘likes’. But hey, that’s just me.

I definitely agree the the focus on proposals is a bit silly these days (like the brides who flip out if there isn’t a photographer there and if it isn’t a complete surprise even though she told him exactly what she wanted). I do go a bit nuts posting my ring, though haha.

It bugs me more when people spend crazy money on a wedding when they can’t afford it. Then I really think it isn’t about the marriage, but the wedding. Getting into debt is a stupid way to start off married life and shows immaturity.

interesting….I know that I want to marry my SO, but reading this gave me pause and made me remember that all my anxiety and worry about when and how he proposes could make him think i was nuts (if i let him see it!). So, I think this article is right..people need to just chill out and focus on the present. By the way, I’m a little shocked (I don’t know why though) that there’s a website about nothing but proposals! Did you guys see that listed in the article?

@LeonardLady:  That definitely reeked of judgement.

I don’t entirely disagree with the sentiment; I do think many women forget that at the end of that engagement & wedding comes a marriage to the man for, hopefully, the rest of your lives.

But, at the same time, I really can’t see there being anything wrong with excitement over an engagement or wedding.

I was extremely excited about my engaged, & I posted photos online, but now that I am married to my best friend, I can definitely say we got engaged & married for all the right reasons.

I guess my issue with this article is that the author painted the engagement/wedding world with a very broad brush. Not everyone who picked their own engagement ring out is a materialistic asshole, & not everybody who began with “humble beginnings” has a lasting marriage.
