So, my fiance’s family are all a real bunch of nutters (see my previous threads). His sister is no exception. She says gems such as “don’t you dare get married before me” and “the only reason I wasn’t engaged first is because my boyfriend couldn’t afford the ring I wanted”. Yep. A real winner.
She’s been putting all this stuff up on pinterest about weddings, and I was FREAKING OUT because she’s such a drama queen and wants a $50k wedding or bust. I’m getting married next summer, have it booked already. I didn’t want to deal with that nonsense while trying to enjoy my own wedding!
Fiance emailed me to let me know that her boyfriend proposed yesterday and I just started crying at my friend’s house. His email goes on to say that despite the fact that they are engineers and brag about making $160k gross between them, they can’t afford to get married until 2015 because she’s a greedy bitch.
His father was on the phone with her and was really very relaxed and uninterested in the whole conversation, too. When we called them to announce our engagement, they took shots over the phone to celebrate!
So, I get my dream wedding, and she gets to sit in her shit and stew about it for two years. I feel so extremely happy that she’s not getting hitched anytime soon!

@Peacockfeather: lol, I can’t help but chuckle reading this. I would be really happy too. I think it’s important to keep this celebration on the inside though! 😉

@OnceUponATime: Doing my best to. I really am happy for them, they’ve been dating longer than we have and they make each other happy. I was just really happy that her new fiance had the balls to say “because you want something that expensive on one day, you’re going to have to wait”. Thank goodness someone learned to say no to her, because it certainly wasn’t going to be her family!

@Peacockfeather: That is really good. Some people are never told “no”!

Haha, I had a bit of a chuckle here too! I think it’s perfectly acceptable to be happy that you’re not going to have the stress of her planning a wedding that’s “better” (in her mind) than yours. Hopefully you’ll be able to keep the celebrations on the inside!
Congratulations (is that the right word?) for such happy news!

lol Sometimes it feels good just to see someone not get the immediate gratification that they want or things not work out they way they want. It is mature?! No but we all take pleasure in a little immature glee at times (even if they keep it totally inside) and anyone that says otherwise is not being truthful!
I have to admit I feel this way sometimes too about my ex…just do not let it take over or that would be unhealthy. Oh and remember, not everyone will agree with it so be careful who you share it with!

@Luayne: Hahaha yeah, I had this moment wiht my ex when we got engaged. He’d heard through the grapevine and messaged me saying that my fiance was immature and it’d never be the same as being with him. I just told him that ‘his jealous behavior is the reason I’m calling it ‘winning the breakup'” and never heard from him again XD
@LadyElva: Another Kingstonian! It turns out she won’t be able to make it to the wedding at the date we have booked, she works in Nunavut on a two-week rotation and that’s one of her weeks away :/ I feel kinda bad, but at the same time now I’m spared her judging us the whole time!
