- Wedding: October 2014
I cannot hold it any longer. I had been keeping this as a “secret” (from my mum, sis, BFF!!) because I don’t want to become all excited about it and face the truth (aka he forgetting) when September comes.
But I really really really needed to tell someone, and you have been such a supporting community that I needed to share.
Last Monday, I told SO that he wasn’t as commited to the relationship as I was. So we started talking (again) about all this kind of stuff. He asked me again to move in with him, to what I answered that we should (at least) be engaged or planning the wedding (this was the first time I mentioned him the possibility of moving in BEFORE being married). Then, I said something like: I would marry you tomorrow if we could.
Then we dropped the topic, and a few hours later he was checking July’s pay check and said “if I keep earning as much as now, we will be able to afford the wedding ourselves” (meaning HE will be able to afford OUR wedding HIMSELF, as I don’t have a job yet).
I didn’t want to wedding talk any more because I know that lately is the only topic that comes out of my mouth, so I started focusing on his career (because he has been promoted – that’s why he was checking his payroll).
He accused me of changing the subject a few times, and went back to talk about “my proposal” (as he has started calling it since). And although I thought it was kind of a joke, he ended up saying: “we could start looking for venues on September, so we make sure that we get married next October (2014) and I can join my wedding leave and my holidays. That way I will be free for almost 2 months!”
He has also mentioned a few times where we are going to go on our honeymoon and stuff like that, and the other night he mentioned that we could watch a wedding dress show so I could start picking up ideas.
I don’t know if he is joking or if he will forget… But I’m so excited because I suppose we “kind of” have a timeline!
(sorry for that)
