Girl I know how you’re feeling! This past weekend 3 of my friends got engaged… AND my most recent ex told me he just bought a ring for his GF! Let’s just say that the engagement itch is getting a little unbearable these days…

I do want to make a comment regarding peacock’s advice, if I may. I agree with crebre in that nowhere in Becky’s post did she say she is “needing” to get married. We’re talking about values here. We don’t need to be questioning “why it matters,” when she has already made it apparent that it does matter to her. It is something that she values and wants for her life. And obviously, it matters to you too, Peacock, since you yourself are getting married (congratulations!)! It would be an awful waste of time, energy, and money to throw that “party” if it didn’t matter to you as well. In fact, you are “proud” of your upcoming nuptuals, are you not? 🙂 I just wanted to kindly remind you that this is the Waiting board, we are all anxious about getting engaged and getting to plan a wedding, or we would not be here, but it hasn’t happened for many of us yet, so this is our space to express any and all feelings associated with that: frustration, excitement, disappointment, and anything else we feel, and to have our feelings validated by others who are in the same situation. In the words of Martha… it’s a Good Thing. Wink

I totally understand. My boyfriend’s best friend got married a few weeks ago and the whole time he kept saying “I can’t believe he did it!”

He says that everytime his friends get married. He’s 25, a perfectly normal and acceptable age to get married… but he’s totally freaked out when people his age get married.

I think he’s finally getting there too though. I hope so, anyway.
