- Wedding: September 2012
Hi ladies. I’m new here. I wish I had some amazing proposal story, but I don’t. My love story is pretty amazing though.
In a nutshell, I used to date my now bf, 12 years ago. We dated long distance for a while, which proved to be too difficult for the immature 20 year old that I was. Fast forward 10 years, 3 children, and an ex husband later, and we are together again. I was in love with him the whole time we were apart. I never thought our love could be again. It seemed so impossible, so archaic, that I would love someone for so long. My friends thought I was crazy. The amazing thing is that all the while he felt the same way!
I am grateful for our second chance. We are stronger now than we ever were. He is my Prince Charming, my Knight in Shinning Armor. He is my soul mate.
About 8 months ago, my bf sarted losing his vision rapidly. He is now legally blind (due to LHON). This has affected him tremendously, both emotionally and economically, as he lost his job. Suddenly, our romance had to become practical. My hopes and dreams for that perfect engagement ring, given to me in that perfect surprise moment, were gone.
I’ve been married before, so I won’t mind not having a wedding reception. But not having a proposal is just depressing. When I mentioned being dissapoointed about that, he said something that made me feel like he still plans to propose. But wouldn’t that be weird, to propose when you already know for certain you are getting married, and what engagement ring you are getting? I mean the point of a proposal is to ask right? I feel kind of uncomfortable about it.
Bees, should I just tell him to skip the proposal?
