The comments used to really bother me before we got engaged, I mean really what do you say do that. We def. got some finally comments, but I’m just so happy to be engaged that it didn’t bother me at all. I have told my sis/ Maid/Matron of Honor that when she makes her toast at the wedding, no finally comments/ jokes; I just want to focus on being married, not how long it took.

@ms.oregon.state:

I wouldn’t worry too much, we got the FINALLY and “What took you so long” comments after just 2 years so you have no chance 🙂

We have gotten the “finally, you’re getting married comments” and the ones about the engagement. What can I say, we haven’t been in a rush.

They’re silly comments and I don’t think you should take them to heart. People always have something negative to say about things, because they’re either trying to be funny, or they’re jealous, or you haven’t done things the RIGHT way (ie. the exact way they did them). JDo your best to ignore them and rest easy knowing your timeline works for you no matter what they say.

We got engaged this past Sunday, July 3rd.  I have heard the finally remarks so many times already and we’ve only been together a little over 2 years!  No time is apparently soon enough for everyone else.

I’ve always dreaded the “finally” comment, but I’ve come to terms with it now. Besides, those people who are saying finally have been rooting for you all along 😉

I am also dreading this…I was just thinking about that the other day.  We’ve been together almost 6 and a half years and living together for almost 1.  And you always know which jerk people are going to say it too…I already know. 

At least this post put me a little more at ease about it…maybe I won’t get any when it (FINALLY!! haha) happens!

@UpstateCait: “that was quick”  – LOL, that’s what I’m afraid of.  Fiance and I got engaged at 7 months (although it’ll be 1 year on Sunday!) We knew each other for 3 years before and were practically best friends the entire time though.  But I hate when people ask how long we’ve been together because I feel like all they’ll be thinking is “that was quick.”

I’m not dreading the “finally” comments as it will probably be my own thoughts lol. What I do detest though are the “You’re not engaged yet!” and the “When are you getting married?” questions and comments….

@ms.oregon.state:

I have been dating my SO for 8 years and there is not a week that goes by where I dont hear at least three comments on when I will be engaged!! My boss, family, and close friends seem to be anxiously waiting like me! haha I know that when the time does come, we will get a lot of “Finally” , “It’s about time!” or “what took so long!”
