- Wedding: January 2012
So, we’re already engaged, and I have never for one moment resented getting engaged without a ring. But I still want one, because I’m a sentimental person, and the fiance wants me to have one too. Last month, we went to Shane, and ended up making the perfect ring! It’s modest, but what I want, and I love it, so he put a down payment on it, and put it on layaway until December. I told him I would like to have it for engagement pictures which we took last week. Early last week, he said he might be able to get it, but would prefer to wait until after November 4th. I said, “Okay, that’s great! Do you think we’ll be able to get it before Thanksgiving?” He responded, “Oh yeah, that’s not a problem.”
Today he tells me he’ll be making a payment Saturday, the 5th. “Awesome!” I say, “for part or all of it?” “Just for part of it,” he says. Oh.
“Okay, well do you still think we’ll still be able to get it by Thanksgiving?”
“I dunno. Since we’ve taken pictures, there’s no rush anymore.” Oh. ARG. I know everything that goes on with him financially. Nothing has changed between last week and this week. I’m not even mad, I’m just disappointed. I thought we were gonna get it this weekend, because of what he said. After I expressed my disappointment, I felt badly and explained to him why it was important to me. Since we’ve gotten engaged, I’ve just kept wearing my promise ring. I told him today, that I loved having a promise ring because it represented our relationship, and allowed me to look at it and remember what he said when he gave it to me. But now we’ve moved onto a new stage, and the promise ring is not representative of this stage. I was really excited to get to switch them out.
I know y’all think I’m crazy. I know I’m getting it, just thought I was getting it a lot sooner. I just needed to vent. 🙂
