- Wedding: October 2011
My SO and I just sat in the car for about 15 minutes talking about the future before putting away the groceries…
He’s never ever ever been willing to give me a realistic timeframe for when he plans to propose or would like to get married before. Every time I’d start asking, he’d either come up with something crazy or just say nothing — we ended up joking that we’d get married in 2027 because that’s the closest his unorganized man-brain could think of. But just now, we were having a low-key fuss over finances for the next couple of months — he wants to get me big birthday and anniversary presents, and I keep telling him to save his money. And *then* he busted out with the info that he may have to dip into his ring fund to get me what he wants to get me… I told him how disappointed that would make me, kept on telling him I really wanted him to save rather than to spend on me because it made me worried that we’d never get married.
He made me a promise that if we’re not already married by our anniversary in 2014, he’d take me to the courthouse if that’s what I wanted.
I can’t express HOW much better I feel just having some sort of timeline in my head to go by. I think this is going to help me get through the holiday season a lot, because even a later time is just soooo much better than having no idea at all and getting all anticipate-y.
Whew! I love feeling like I can sit back and relax some 😀
