- Wedding: November 2011
Ok, so I have NO idea why wedding is on the brain of everyone lately, but I swear it is haunting me. Everywhere I go, someone is talking about marriage, engagements, etc. This wouldn’t get to me so much, if it wasn’t for the all-of-a-sudden “attack” on US as a couple. Literally, everyone I know has been asking me when we are going to get married. I can count over 20 times in the last month that someone has made a comment about it!
What really gets to me is that most of these comments are directed towards me. Everyone asks me, like it is MY decision when he is finally going to pop the dang question. Last night, I was texting one of our mutual friends, (who I would NEVER think would ask about marriage), off of my SO’s phone. He asked me “so since he isn’t reading these texts, I want to ask a question that I have been wondering for awhile now. When are you getting married??” I just started laughing and wrote “I would marry him tomorrow if he would ask”, and basically dropped it. I told my SO later and he smiled.
Today, we were driving back from lunch and my SO’s childhood best friend texts him and tells him that he is getting married! We were both so excited for him, so after my SO said his congrats I took his phone and proceeded to congratulate him myself. After I did…guess what I get back in response? “So I’ve been wondering myself when you guys are going to get married? I know you have at least thought about it.”
Well I just about lost it. This is just an example from the last 24 hours; this has been my life for the past 2 MONTHS! I set his phone down rather loudly and said to my SO:
“WHY DOES EVERYONE ASK ME WHEN WE ARE GETTING MARRIED? LIKE IT IS MY DECISION? THE BALL IS IN YOUR COURT. WHY DON’T THEY ASK YOU? I AM GOING TO GO CRAZY IF ONE MORE PERSON ASKS MEEEEE.”
I really surprised myself with this outburst. Apparently, I had already actually gone crazy. But my SO surprised me even more when he replied back with a gentle smile “Lets get married this summer!”
Then he asked me if I would want to get married during a break, or what my preferences are (we are both finishing up school).
Yesterday, he asked me if the ring I showed him awhile back was still my favorite.
AHHHHH I have really, really been doing well with my outbursts lately. I really didn’t want to nag him. But I am so glad that a little bit of my crazy came out today… now I know he (probably) isn’t planning on waiting a year and a half to get married like I thought he wanted to. I just want to be married to this man.
Thank you girls for listening to my extremely long documentation of this wonderful moment I had today…it may not sound like much, but I am on cloud nine. It is exactly what I needed to hear.
