- Wedding: April 2012
So I sent him an email (I’m terrible with confrontation, and it’s easier for me to just write it all down, get it all out there and then get a response)…
As I suspected he didn’t mean that I have to clean the whole house myself (or clean up after him), he just wants me to clean up after myself and WE will work on cleaning the house together. And he will step up and do his part to pick up after himself.
And he didn’t mean to make it sound like getting married was a bargaining chip, he was simply letting me know that he’s looking for someone to marry who picks up after themselves. He also said that he isn’t ready to seriously start thinking about marriage yet, he wants us to be together for AT LEAST a year (which we had talked about before), but he wanted me to know that a wife who cleans up after herself was important to him, since I wasn’t doing that, and because he does love me and he is happy with me…
So we are definitely on the same page right now, which feels pretty good… And he thanked me again for cleaning up the bedroom.
Thanks for everyone’s input!
