That is AWESOME!!! How great is it to have a somewhat ‘firm’ timeline.  I am so happy that you guys had such a wonderful ring shopping experience!  I am looking forward to when SO and I finally get to the ‘ring shopping’ step!  Please keep us updated!! I hope it happens for you before the 8 month mark!

Yay for clarity! Any advice for girls whose boyfriends don’t give it?

Yay for you, so you have at max an 8 months wait?! Awesome news! – thats definately a reasonable waiting time if he needs to save up for the ring or kind of make you wait a while to gain that suprise effect again!

I think clarity goes both ways – I had to literally tell my SO that I would love a ring and proposal from him and to get married.. he also had no idea how much it means to me if he asks for my dads permission first before proposing until I told him. I don’t see why women can’t just put their cards on the table, if he responds well hes game and you know your not wasting your time.

If your in a loving relationship – just tell him what you want and do not press it further unless hes all up for it too!

Awesome. I am totally in the camp that talking about marriage should never be taboo after the first several dates. There’s a such thing as overdoing it, but it always makes me so sad to see these girls who are afraid to bring it up at all, so they just wait and wait. In all fairness to their SOs, they may have no idea these ladies even WANT to get married anytime soon!
