Yesterday, my older brother and his girlfriend of 2 1/2 years came from where they live to hang out with my mother, my SO, and me. My brother, who is almost 28, has always been the bachelor type who never dated seriously, and has always said he doesn’t want to get married until he’s 30, if ever. My family loves his current girlfriend, though, and I’ve always hoped he would marry her. As we were taking a tour of a mine yesterday (I live in a historic Gold Rush town), I overheard my brother and his girlfriend saying that it would be a cool place for them to get married. I know it might still be 2+ years, but I was surprised to hear him discuss it at all and I’m excited for them.
