So my cousin is getting married in a little over two months. Her Fiance and her dated 1 year to the day before getting engaged, and will be married 1 year after he proposed. They are older than me and my SO by about 2 years. I am EXTREMELY happy for them. They are perfect together. I honestly don’t think I have ever seen two people who were more meant for each other.
But…I get jealous when we talk wedding! SO and I have been together for 3 years and known each other for 7, my cousin and her Fiance have known each other maybe 3 years total…I put things in perspective (age/scool/job wise), but I want it to be me! ha! just wondering if anyone else was in the same boat!

Yeah. I am engaged but now I am “waiting” to get married. Will be waiting a couple of years. Meanwhile, I’m watching two different couples who got engaged after us, get married this year. It’s kind of hard. I’m happy for them of course, but you know… jealousy.

I’ve never really had to deal with this because we’re both 20 (21 in a few weeks!) so none of our friends or highschool classmates have gotten engaged yet. I have a feeling we’ll be the first couple, but I can imagine how frustrating it would be to see people who haven’t been together as long get engaged before you.

@sugarpea: we’re 21 too! We live in a pretty conservative catholic community. MANY of my friends from grade/high school are engaged/married/have kids!

I totally understand how you feel. SO and I have been together over 3 years and went ring shopping about a month ago- now I’m just waiting! But a friend of mine told me that our mutual friend is talking engagement with her boyfriend of 5 months and that they might be getting engaged really soon! I know my SO has some kind of plan to propose in the spring (some warm weather proposal plan- I kind of overheard him talking to someone about it.) So if my friend gets engaged before me, I know I’ll be jealous. Ridiculous, I know. But I can’t help it! :/
The main difference between our situations… while your cousin and her Fiance are perfect for each other, I unfortunately, do not feel the same way about my friend and her boyfriend. I hope it’s not a mistake/too fast for them.
