- Wedding: December 2014
My Boyfriend or Best Friend has the ring (even let me see which drawer he’s keeping it in) and apparently he wanted to propose this summer…I wish I didn’t know that, I’m anxious enough as it is. Problem is, we’ve had some family issues come up and now he’s waiting until it’s a “better time.” We’ve been together for two years but we’ve known each other since I was twelve and he was thirteen. We started talking marriage before we were even six months into this relationship and I feel like I’ve been waiting forever!
Problem number one? My parents announced this summer that they’re going to get a divorce. I honestly think he’s more affected by it than I am and while I do feel guilty that I haven’t been strongly affected, my parents used to tag team me a lot to get their way and ever since dad moved out of the house, they haven’t done it anymore.
Problem number two…his parents married in their 30s and insist that since we’re in our early 20s, we simply must be too young. This problem is starting to go away, though, since Boyfriend or Best Friend pointed out that they only dated for six months before they became engaged. Also, they simply adore me and treat me better than my “real” family ever did. When my parents refused to acknowledge my birthday this year, his parents took me out for dinner, then threw a surprise party for me.
Am I wrong to be so impatient? I’m really genuinely trying hard not to pressure him if he doesn’t feel that now is a good time, but I feel like he’s teasing me with that ring! He even had me try it on before putting it back in that damned drawer.
