- Wedding: June 2014
So I know its going to be a little while yet- money issues keep cropping up, I earn more than my SO anyway so that is often a recurring theme, and he rarely has any to spare, much less for a ring..and I dont think he is in any rush (we live together already) but you know what really go my goat?
We had a really full on family weekend – meeting loads of new people (we’ve been together 4 years but huuuuge family) I made a super amount of effort and we are going to a wedding soon (indian wedding so i need about 4 outfits) I have entered into the culture like a fiend, been shopping with his cousins, spent £££ in the process and all to try and embrace his family culture and things.. and whilst meeting all of these family members I said to him privately ‘the only thing I am not looking forward to about the wedding is ooo this is his girlfriend… it makes us sound about 16’ and we’re going to have a lot more introductions.(we’re both almost 30) and his response was I’m afraid that’s all you’re getting for now. Partner? Mistress? Plus one? Housemate?
I hope he was joking.. why are boys so mean? 🙁 I’m not sure he understands how much I want to be a proper part of the family and an official Mrs, or he is trying to ignore it because he has no monies…
