- Wedding: May 2015
Hello! I’m new to Wedding Bee, and I hope to be here much more frequently. 🙂
Sorry if this is in the wrong place; We’re engaged but in a long engagement!
I have been with my fiancée for about 4 1/2 years, engaged a year ago. We are waiting a few years because of college, finances, and just wanting to get in order. We live together, and are stable. We don’t want to rush, get in debt, and my studies could be in jeopardy! I mean, who wants to study kinesiology, when I can look at beautiful wedding dresses!?
BUT. I’m a little jealous over a few things…
1) My fiancée’s 17 year old cousin has a 4 year old boy. I understand everyone dotes on the little guy, but the dad is such a hands-off dad it isn’t even funny… Grandma does all the work.
2) I’ve got quite a few friends who are married/married with kids. One girl got engaged within 5 months of meeting the guy, and it’ll be a year on the day when they get married! ALSO, the girl’s younger sister is pregnant. Like really?!
I am just a little bummed. Okay, a lot. It doesn’t seem fair (I know, boo hoo me…) but, my fiancée and I are trying to do things ‘right’. We’ve been together quite a while. We are waiting to tie the knot until we are financially stable, and we have decent jobs. We are waiting to have sex until we are married (not a religious choice) and definitely no children of our own till we are stable.
How can these people run around, getting married within a year of meeting, pregnant, moving across the province. Gah!
Is it just me being completely selfish, or is there another lady out there who knows what I’m going through? 🙁 I know my time will come, but how can I just breathe and not let others super fast weddings and kids bother me?
