@waitingforever:  Ugh. I don’t know what to say about that. My FI proposed, but now has nothing to say about dates for a wedding. So I guess I’m kind of in the same boat with you. I asked him if we are actually going to get married and he said yes! But, still changes the subject every time. Men are from mars…

Whaaat? If you already “got married,” I’d assume you’d get legally married ASAP, like, both of your next days off…

@waitingforever:  Tell him you want it to be legally recognized now. The legal part definitely isn’t romantic or lovey dovey like the ceremonious part, but it’s not fair that you guys already committed to taking care of that and now he’s dragging his feet.

My inital responce is to kick off in his rear. I would honestly tell him flat out that we are already married and we need to get this done and I am NOT going to wait. We are going down there on X date and thats the end of it. 

There is no reason to put this off. Put your foot down.

How strange. I agree with a PP that surely you would have your destination wedding and then get married legally within a few days of getting home. It doesn’t make sense to hold it back, especially as you are already married. Tell him to get his butt in gear….withhold sexual privileges!

I don’t know what his problem is.  I guess just talk to him and tell him you want a reason for why he’s acting like this now or else you’ll stay with a friend.

I’m confused. Clearly you didn’t get “married” abroad you had one of those ceremonial services then, right?

I thought destination weddings were legally binding.  Did he give you a reason as to why he wants to wait?  I’m sure you can just go down to the courthouse and it will only take a few mins, maybe an hour.
