ARGH! My other half quite literally brings up marriage at least 3 times a week with me or amongst friends and I know its on his mind a lot.
Last night we had friends over whom have said theyll never get married (engaged for over 20 years, with kids, mortgage the whole bit). They obviously feel they dont need to after such a long time.
My other half said “well we’ve only been togather not even 3 years”. what the hell does that mean??? Then after they left he question bombed me about whether they thought it was funny that people assumed we were a married couple and asked me about name changes etc.
Its never negative at least but ffs…
He CONSTANTLY talks about it and its driving me bonkers as I just want to either forget about it until he actually does it, or just do it already!!!

It always amazes me how guys pretend that we women control everything, especially weddings, while they are actually the ones playing with our life plans and our sanity during pre-engagement time… And if we dare say something, one word, just to find out what the heck is going on, then everyone, including other girls, tell us we are control freaks!
Soooo frustrating, I know!
Hope he gets his butt in gear soon so you two can start working towards the next step!

Aww I’m so sorry you’re going through this. I had about a year of it so I know how you feel! I hope he puts his money where his mouth is soon and proposes!

@soupir: Exactly!!! It’s the most frustrating double standard, for them to talk about it is a-okay, but if we bring it up we are pressuring them and being nutty and stiflling and emasculating them and Lord knows what else.

SO keeps aluding to name changes every other day now but I know the proposal isn’t going to happen soon.
