A similar thing happened to me a few months back. SO’s transmission died on his 2002 civic, and it was at the point where putting any more money into that car would’ve been a waste. So he had to lease a new car, which was not an expense he’d planned for this year. Which put my ring on the backburner, and I was NOT happy.

You say you’d be happy just eloping at this point. Is that something you’ve thought a lot about, or is that just the frustration talking?  😉

Me too! This October is our 6 year anniversary as well. Although, I have only really been paitiently waiting for the last 4 years. However it’s to the point that it won’t be much of a surprise when it actually happens because I’ve been waiting so long for it to happen. It doesn’t help to now know that we are the longest waiting couple I know. All my other friends are married or are in somewhat new relationships (1-2years)

 Why can’t you get engaged in 3 years?  Most people have car payments, just rebudget and get a smaller ring then.  I wouldn’t wait 3 years to get engaged, because of a car.  But that is just me.

I’m sorry you’re feeling down. What sort of ring is it that you’re budgeting for? There’s lots of lovely cheap options you know? There’s not reason to make jewelry a stumbling block to your future.

@wmk6:  You sound so much like me! I always say how is it gonna be a “surprise” when we’ve been dating almost 6 years?!? I know it’s coming so just do it already. I really don’t need a sweet romantic proposal story to tell the grandkids (mostly b/c I don’t think we’ll be having kids lol). I just want to say “hey everyone, I’m enagaged!!!!!!” already!  😉

6 years isn’t bad! I’ve been with SO for 5 and he said it will be “less than 3 years” until he proposes. so it could be 8 years together until we’re engaged. I know it’s crazy hard, but alteast you have eachother

Just hold on things will work out and you two will be very happy in the end! Just try not to look  at the co-worker’s computer or talk about wedding stuff to her! 🙂
