- Wedding: May 2014
Its certainly possible! My SO has been adamant that he wouldn’t propose while unemployed. Well, after a trying 6 month job hunt, he got the job! I still don’t expect a proposal for a while but this puts us in a financial position where we can afford to get our own apartment when our current lease ends. (I have had some issues with our current roommate. To me the amount he pays in rent has never been worth the amount of agitation he introduces into my environment. But I’m a broke college student so I’ve just been trying to tolerate him better.) We will even be able to pay the pet deposit and rescue my cat from my parent’s place (I moved directly in with my boyfriend and his roommate after living in university housing where cats weren’t allowed and our roommate is allergic to cats.)
SO’s brother was also here recently visiting before he moved across the country back to their hometown. And he left with an interesting farewell. “I hope you guys will get to visit at least once before the wedding.” I think he knows something I don’t. He has also volunteered that his mother keeps telling him he should marry me (she wants grandchildren to spoil). So with her as my advocate I need to just keep my cool and wait it out.
