Oh I’m sorry you feel this way, but it is completely understanding. Most of us as girls when we were children we had ideas of a diamond ring, prince charming on one knee confessing his love, a ball witha  beautiful gown… It’s kind of like a womans passage into the mommy wife world. Into the next stage of life, something that should be important and beautiful. Could you talk to him about it, tell him you would prefer a thought out engagement and such? You don’t want to spend the next 15 years wishing you’d had that dream proposal engagement wedding

I’m sorry you feel like you’re going to miss out. But you don’t have to! I think most of us expected to get engaged, but that doesn’t mean our proposals weren’t exciting or surprising! Just because you’re gonna get married quick doesn’t mean he can’t still propose. Just tell him you still want your surprise romantic proposal, and have low expectations. 🙂

Can i tell you what i think?! I think that what you are doing is extremely romantic, it’s true love! I’m sure that there’s a lot of woman that in a situation like this would leave him and prefer to share their life wiht someone healthy. Don’t worry, from all of us, u are the most romantic, you prove with your attitude that your love is true! Oh, it could be a movie! 

And sure, tell him that you still want the proposal of your dreams.. if its possible..

 

Kisses from Brazil!

@ingridp:  I was just going to say this! All of it 🙂 Great minds…

I am in the camp that what you are doing is more romantic than a surprise proposal because it says everything: you can make it through the tough times and if you didnt truly love each other, you would have parted ways when he was first diagnosed.

So happy for you 🙂 and I hope that his health continues to be on the rise. Your love story is the stuff of movies, so dont feel bad for not having the fairy tale wedding/proposal that we women have shoved in our faces since the moment we are born.
