I’ve been away on holiday with my family (who lives quite far away) for 2 weeks. But before I left (my SO was working, and then also visited his family too, who live elsewhere), we had a very iiinnnnteresting conversation.
And I mean *just* before we left i.e. at the airport, when he was dropping me off! Nothing like a boarding call to force a conversation to a point, hehe.
So some of you helpful bees may have read my previous posts about how we are planning to move to the UK to study, and how, because he has a British passport, it would make sense to marry before we go, due to visa issues, and also, you know, because we’ve been dating for 7 frikking years… haha.
(Also we don’t really want to live together without being married – no disrespect to anyone who does – just our preference)
So, without boring you with the logistics, the question has kind of come down to: do we go to England in January 2013, or somewhere round June/July 2013?
So at lunch before the airport, and on the way there, we started discussing when would be best to go. Eventually, at the airport, I said, “well, either way, do you think we should get married before we go to England?” Nothing like a bit of directness, especially since I have been so good about not nagging lately. So his reply was:
“Yes, that would make sense.”
He looked off into the distance and obviously was trying to prevent me from doing a happy dance in the departures hall!
Then a little bit later, he mentioned that it would take a while for any type of visa application to go through too, so we need to consider that. And I said, “Well, yes, so if we got married in May and went in July, that would be okay.”
Then he laughed and said, “Shouldn’t you be on your knees for this, andibean?”
But it wasn’t in a mean way at all, he was all smiles and hugs.
So I said, “Haha, you know what I mean,” or something like that. I’m guessing he meant: “Don’t spoil my proposal, you!” I hope? (I know that he wants to propose, he wasn’t trying to make me ask him, promise! 🙂
We haven’t talked about it since really, only about the studying part, since we’ve just had short phonecalls/ bbms.
I got home today, and he’s back tomorrow, so I see him tomorrow evening.
I am probably jumping the gun (he can be the most annoyingly cautious person in the world at times, and most likely wants to get the England thing 100% sorted before proposing) but I am pretty happy that he went home in the mean time too, as he’d mentioned before that his mom had an heirloom diamond for him/ me. So maybe it’s in his possession now? Who knows?
I am also getting a manicure tomorrow – it’s kind of coincidental as there just happened to be a special offer on at the salon I go to – but who knows, maybe it’s serendipiditous!
For now, those four sensible words – “That would make sense” – have made me quite a bit more hopeful.
