We were together for 7 years when we finally got married. I knew it would be a while but thought it was getting ridiculous. I still think he waited too long. He still says that he was waiting “to be sure”, but it makes me feel like I wasn’t someone he did not want to let get away. It’s like the statement from When Harry Met Sally “when you meet the person you want to spend the rest of your life with, you want the rest of your life to begin as soon as possible” just doesn’t apply to me for some reason. I do not dwell on it bc we are happily married for 3+ years , with a beautiful daughter, but I will always feel that way. OTOH, I am truly happy for women who do not have to deal with a situation like this. I just know a part of me will wonder why it wasn’t me.

I was definitely getting super resentful by the time he asked. Well maybe not up that far but at least until he had bought my stone to be set lol! We’d been coming up on 3 years (you make me feel bad about being angry now at 10 years!) and I was all thinking “Well what the hell?! Is he just not sure about me? What’s going on?!” Once I knew he was in the process of it though and definitely the minute he asked, that resentment just melted away. I knew I was being quite a bit selfish on one hand, but I couldn’t help it! I just wanted that definite commitment from him. We did talk about it after that and I told him I was getting resentful but I told him I completely got over it that minute lol. Everything is awesome with him and we’re well on our way to the wedding day!
