  • Wedding: April 2014 - Rebar

@SLfairytale:  thats great news!!! yes i remember been in your place at that age. By your age i had been with SO for about 7 years already. It was very exciting because we also set a timeline. What we did what set goals that we both wanted to accomplish such as finishing school for both of us, for him was to move away from NYC for a while which he did have the chance to once he went to law school. For me was to travel! which i did! and i loved it! and to be financially stable and also SO wanted to purchase a home which we finally did this year!! I am now 25 going on 26! and i we are both absolutely ready to take that next step. We will be getting engaged befoer the end of this year and are plannign to be married by next year in June. It was so worth the wait bc we were able to enjoy our ourselves and honestly do things alone which i think its important. For me travellign allow me to find myself and find a passion on my own. I wouldnt trade those years for the life of me. I know for SO living alone for a while away from family and friends was a big deal. but it was absolutely difficult bc we were long distance for three years. Then when he came back i ended up going to Italy for a while. But our commitment kept us strong…and i felt that we both brought something special and unique to our relationship. I think we both had the same timeline! Ill be engaged before the age of 26 which is what i wanted! and so will be 27 going on 28! We are both super excited and our families are as well since its been years in the making 🙂

@SLfairytale:  currently, in a similar situation, but younger. I am 20 and SO if 19, we are in college, with absolutely no rush for marriage however, we do know that we want to marry in April in either 2018 or 2019 where he will be around 24/25 and I 25/26. 

Im happy that your talk went over very well, my SO and I talk about it very openly and his parents often say “when you and mckey430 get married and have a family” so its assumed. 

Here’s to hoping !!

SLfairytale:  I didn’t see how old this thread was! I was sitting here trying to figure out the math on how you arrived at being 26 in one to two years. LOL
