Hey everyone I just wanted to introduce myself!
I too, am waiting and I am NOT very patient. SO and I have been together 3 years in Nov and been living together since about 6 months in so we’ve got a pretty big history. He is also the only father figure that my sons know, they are 4 and 5. Pretty much everyone has been asking/nagging him for the last year on when he’s going to finally marry me. He even had an old coworker run into him and was like, “Have you married that girl yet!?!”. I feel like it’s getting ridiculous! I want that ring and I want to get married lol…his coworker and boss (super tight knit job) are telling him frequently “its time to put a ring on it” haha
At first it was fears of marriage, he wasn’t ready and then what REALLY sent me for a loop was ME finding myself getting scared of marriage so that put the breaks on him proposing! We’ve finally moved past all that. We both want to get married, we’re ready, we decided on a vegas wedding with just our parents and he’s going to be adopting my babies, something obviously VERY special.
He actually asked me to marry him a long time ago he just won’t let me make it “official” until we have a ring. He’s currently saving for the ring and has *promised* me I will have that ring on my finger by Christmas. He’s never broken a promise to me, ever, so I better have it! He swears up and down the only hold up is the financial part, but part of me is scared he’s going to get cold feet again. I told him if he hadn’t ordered the ring by the end of November I was taking his debit card and ordering it myself! lol TOTALLY kidding but I think he got the idea! I think he’s starting to feel bad about making me wait (I hope so anyway! lol) because he agreed to let me order the ring with him and wear it as soon as it arrives instead of having him propose as a surprise since technically he already did that, so it seems silly to do it again and that would be even MORE waiting! I just want to get that rock on my finger and begin showing it off IMMEDIATELY! I’m sure all of you do!
Christmas seems so far away, I don’t know how I’m going to survive until then.
