- Wedding: September 2018
I am very very happy that my family like SO.
For background: I am moving overseas in just under two weeks to be with SO, I could have left earlier but decided to spend a little time “at home” to catch up with family since we’re all very close and my grandparents are very elderly so I don’t kow when I’ll see them again.
But wow can they talk about “our wedding” (this is an imaginary wedding since SO hasn’t proposed yet!) a bit tooooo much. Highlights include but are not limited to:
“I’ll give you and <SO> the silver tea set but only when you are married”
“I’m sure you could have a lovely wedding dress made in the far east”* (where I am moving)
I also told my grandma some friends of mine had got engaged after five years together, she said: “You’d better not wait that long if you want me and your grandfather to be here”
“Please don’t get married overseas or I wont be able to come”
“I’m sure you could have a lovely wedding in the back garden”
*On telling my mum of the weird conversation I had with my Grandma “I’d thought the same thing about the dress” (she has lived in the far east too). This is on top of “It’s when not if though right?” as well as sharing her “ideas”.
My brothers both refer to SO as my “fiance” and keep asking when he’s going to propose. My answer “How am I supposed to know… in his own sweet time probably”.
This isn’t a rant, yes it would get old eventually but I’m pleased theyre pleased and happy for me and SO. But how the hell am I supposed to be patient when everyone else is struggling?!?!?
(Regarding my grandparents. They’re 91 and 86, they wont be here forever. I really want them to be around for our wedding, but I don’t want SO to feel rushed regarding it.)
I know it’ll happen… waiting patiently 🙂
