- Wedding: April 2014
so this may be a bit more of a vent than anything but i feel like thisi s the only place i can put it all out there and people will understand and not think less of me. i know the whole patience is a virtue thing but waiting is killing me! i dont really know where to start so i will just start from the beginning.
me and my SO have been together for 2 years and good friends for 4 years before that. i know when i tell people aobut this they say im rushing into this because im young (im 20 he is 25) but we are not like those couples that are together for 6 months and get engaged we actually have put in the time to get to know each other flaws and all.we have also lived together for over a year now (we currently live with his family) and have a baby boy together. our families get along fairly well and my dad even call him son and his family introduces me to everyone as their future daughter. and our friends get along great too (lucky i know!)
i guess i just want to know that our relaitionship is progressing. i love him more than anything and want nothing more that to spend the rest of my life with him and he has said the same thing to me and even has gone so far as to say that he already considers me as his wife… and HE is the one to bring up wedding stuff! like saying how his friend/mentor is a justice of the peace and my friends offered to make the cake and his friend to do the pictures and stuff like that. but still no ring! i have told him about rings that were my great grandmother’s that i have love since i was little and she willed to me. my dad now has them (e-ring/wedidng ring set) and really all SO has to do is go the block and a half to my dads house (yeah its really only that far away) and ask for him to get them out of the safe! she wore the same ring size as me adn all so all they need is to be cleaned and be good to go!
i think it may have something to do with helping his sister plan her wedding that has really gotten me thinking about this and now i just cant get it off my mind now. im sorry this is turning into kind of a rant but am i being unrealistic? shoud i just let it go and be patient or should i talk to him about this and try to get a timeline or something? i really need an opinion from someone on the outside
