- Wedding: February 2014
I’ve actually been lurking in here since March, but I figured its time to officially join you all.I’ve been with my boyfriend since Feb, and although it hasn’t been that long, were both committed to forever. However, he’s still nervous about the idea of marriage, even though he keeps saying things like “when we’re married” or refers to me as his wife to be. But we both want children, and due to age (I’m 36, he’s 38), we have had several discussions about trying now. After lots of talking it through, and lots of thinking it over on my own, we’ve agreed to toss the protection and see what happens. This is the only place I’ve admitted what we’re doing; my family will understand, I’ve always wanted kids, I love this man and know he’ll be a great father, my dad is the only grandparent (his mother is out of his life, & his father and my mom are both gone) and I want dad to know his grandchild, and age is a big factor. but some acquaintances are going to judge because a) it hasn’t even been 6 months and b) we’re not engaged, much less married.
