- Wedding: January 2013
I’ve been lurking for a few days and thought I’d say hi. My SO and I have been together for almost 2 years. Neither one of us really know our dating anniversary since we were friends for about a year before we decided to be together. I’ll be 30 in a few months and he just turned 36.
This whole waiting thing is kinda wierd for me. We were both married before and I swore that I would never do it again. However, lately he has been dropping not-so-subtle hints about us getting married. Back in late August he mentioned something to the effect of “when I ask you to marry me” and a few days later he tells me that he that he has a surprise for me that he had to put a deposit down on. I think what brought this on was a combination of his brother and best friend getting engaged and our deciding that we really, really, really want a child soon. While I was hesitant at first; it seems that the idea of getting married again is growing on me.
I pretty much know exactly what I want as far as a wedding (elopement) and pretty much how much it will cost (turns out it will be much cheaper to do it sooner rather than later since I have two round-trip airline tickets that expire in about 6 months). And I may or may not have already bought a dress off of Ebay. In my defense it was way too good of a deal to pass up and if I end up not wearing it I’ll resell it or give it to my goddaughter to play dress-up with.
