- Wedding: June 2013
Well Bees, after lurking around the posts for a while, I’ve finally decided to step up and write one myself. I figure it’s only fair since your posts have been there for me and now I can be there for you guys too. I’ve been with my guy for two years and we are both in our mid-twenties. Our relationship has dealt with a lot (cancer treatment for me, combat deployment with the Marines for him, long distance now) but it’s still been the absolute best time of my life and I wouldn’t trade our relationship for anything. For the past year, he’s started bringing up marriage more and more frequently as well as moving in together after I graduate from my master’s program. I feel like I’m a little different from a lot of the ladies on here. I haven’t been thinking about marriage for long and honestly, the thought of it used to scare me stiff (my parents have each been divorced twice….not the best role models in that regard). I’ve always known that I wanted to be with him and I want so badly to marry him but the actual idea of getting married used to scare me even though I knew I wanted to be with him for the rest of my life. I hope that makes sense. Anyways, I’ve finally come around and I know for a fact that he’s been saving for a ring and I really feel the proposal will happen when he comes out for the new year or in the spring for my graduation. I just happened to overhear a conversation between him and my sister that has me feeling it’s going to be sooner than I had originally thought. After all my weirdness and hesitation, I’m now so antsy and I can’t wait for it to actually happen! He’s my absolute best friend and love of my life and now I just can’t wait. Anyways, that’s me and my situation in a nutshell….glad I can be here waiting with you ladies!
