My SO and I have been communicating a bit more lately on what we see in the future for our relationship.
We are incredibly happy together, and just have a way about us that makes being truly happy together very effortless. If we disagree – we can always calmly talk it out.
Anyway.. He’s mentioned lately that he really wants to settle down & marry me. (“he would absolutely love to marry me and buy a house together” …those were his words) and he went on to say “but it’s just going to talk us a little time to save for those things”. Which I completely understand. He lives a few hours away bc of work, and we are currently waiting to see where he’s going to be permanently located before we decide where to live. (He’s in the state police)
His mom is the town clerk where i live, so yesterday I got the idea that we should just have her marry us. (It’s part of what she does in her job.) I kinda meant it as a joke though to see what he’d say, and when he didn’t seem interested I asked why and he said…
“Bc maybe something important like that I don’t want to take the cheap easy way out silly”
Waiting is much easier lately. I appreciate the fact he cares so much about wanting everything to be a really amazing experience for us. He even told me he loves when I joke and talk about getting married. I told him I wouldn’t talk about it anymore, but he said he likes it.
…..I guess I just wanted to share my happiness a bit 🙂 we didn’t discuss timeline, so I have no idea when it will actually happen, but I’m actually ok with that. I know he will do it when it’s perfect and the right time.
