- Wedding: July 2016
Looks like my waiting is almost over. SO went to lunch with my dad last week and asked for his blessing. We are not very traditional, but my parents are, and we knew my dad would want that conversation to happen to feel good about us getting married. Apparently they had a nice, long talk about marriage.
I’m really excited now that SO has taken a step to make his intentions known to our families, officially. He also talked to his mom last week, and for those of you who have been following some of the family dynamics here, that is a huge deal. She even offered to pay for our honeymoon when the time comes!
Now that it seems like SO is really getting ready to pop the question, I find myself a lot more relaxed and excited. I’m enjpying these last few days/weeks/months (?) as a dating couple. I’m anticipating the proposal, but I’m not constantly stressed about when or if it’s going to happen. My SO deciding to talk to my dad and his family was a really great idea, our relationship feels normal again. I think I was just very worried when we were still in the planning/not-really-sure stages of talking about an engagement. Talking to the families is a big step and I feel very loved. Can’t wait to say “yes!”
How hard was the waiting process for you, and did your fiance take any steps to let you or others know that the proposal was coming sooner than later?
