- Wedding: October 2014
Ok seriously! when did it become acceptable to butt into your relationship! We have serval griends who are currently thinking they have some say in our relationship! and im fuming! i know they are trying to be nice, but really, as if I wasnt already stressed about not being engaged yet! We have been together well over 5 years….abd some of our friends are appalled we are not married yet! (i want to be married to but DANG! and adding all this ontop of PMS is not good for anyones health….
First incident of the day: I grabbed a quick coffee to catch up with a good guy friend from highschool, and his wife, who are expecting their first baby (YAY! one more little girl i get to buy cute things for! : ) )….. well conversations going great….then all of the sudden they start in on marriage and why arent we married? and whats the hold up….blah blah blah the usual then all of the sudden….My good guy friend we shall call him J and his wife shall be A, J says well i guesse im just going to have to sit down with him and not so gently nudge him into a proposal and get the ball rolling since he apparently wont do it….then A decides to chime in and say “well maybe you should lower your standards on a ring, like get a cheap one from like claires and get married with that, because your expensive tastes could be why he wont propose yet”….
first of all the ring i want for the set is barely over $1,000…. and he has over $7,500 in savings from work, not to mention his upcoming harvest bonus he will recieve which if it was like last years will be pretty damn decent…so apparently no its not my tastes, considering the last ring he picked out was over $2,500…. but we decided on the one i like that is cheaper…
then incident number 2 today: talking to my mother….who big shocker was on another kick about how i need to hurry up and get married and how my SO is turning into the “guy who just rents my bed”… and it is just taking way to long and we need to hurry it up, because my sister is getting married again and she got engaged in under a year to her first husband and at a year to her second husband….so heavens to betsy we should know by now and should have the ball rolling and get married and have babies…just for refrence we donot have the best relationship, and she thinks anyone that does not get engaged after a year or two is wasting thier time, and she is redikulously impatient about usgetting married because it has been soo long!
third incident of the day….find out im not invited to his big family reunion on his moms side because we are not married and they dont view us as a serious relationship because we are not engaged….but BUT his cousin who cant go a week with out him or his fiance completely breaking up the realtionship (her engagement ring has been pawned and re-bought 3 times in the 4 months theyve been engaged)….and theyve only been together for a year….
and lastly: i pretty much have figured out that inorder to see decent houses to rent i have to lie and say im engaged because when i say boyfriend they assume that we are young partiers…and wont keep up the place, but magically i say fiance and we get into see MUCH nicer places, than when we say we are just dating, it irks me to no end……and it kinda makes we want to hit people that they assume just because we are not married we are not mature…..
i know its comming eventually and i really would not complain one bit if he hurried his but up abit….so this is just me getting some things off my chest….that just happen on the same day…
thanks for reading my novel if you stuck with it!
