Anyone else notice how a wedding puts a ridiculous amount of added stress on your relationship? I think its even worse when you’re planning long distance. We always had petty arguments, but we never picked at each other like we have been doing lately.
He is going to fly out here this weekend so we can just reconnect; no phones, emails, or family issues to deal with (phewf). The closer we get to being married, the harder it gets to be apart. It’s only been 33 days since we last saw each other. In the beginning we went 3-4 months at a time and had no issues.
Have you noticed a change in your relationship since getting engaged? Do you find it a lot harder to be apart when you’re so close to the final goal?

Girl I hear you!
Sometimes I feel like we’re too busy focusing on making our long distance relationship work that we forget about getting married. I worry about what our relationship is going to be like by the time we get married, you know? I’m scared that we’re putting all this time and energy into staying connected while we’re apart, and I worry about what the transition will be like when we do get married and live together (heck, live in the same town!).
We pick at each other too….I think it’s just a way to deal with the stress of being apart.
Hey month twin! I’m thinking of heading to Montreal for my honeymoon, and I’ve heard Vancouver is a great place to go. What do you think?

I find it harder to be apart post-wedding, rather than pre-wedding. I had no time for him in the weeks leading up to the wedding since I swung it all myself. But the wedding never really caused us a lot of stress as a couple. Me? Sure, but cuz i brought it upon myself. We basically did what we wanted and told everyone else to go F off with maybe one or two big things to deal with. It’s so hard to take him back to the airport! Boo. I’m still coming down off my high of this weekend =]

Hoo boy, I second that daydream! My Fi and I lived apart for 2 1/2 years of our 8 year relationship and it was miserable! Fortunately, we’re together now and the wedding is two months away (thank heaven!)
