Well. Let me paint a picture for you. FI’s sister has been dating her boyfriend for eight years. They’ve lived together for a good 3 years. Just this past summer he bought a house and wanted to put her name on the mortgage. She said “Not until I have a ring on my finger.” Now, it’s all everyone talks about to them. I feel awful for her, but buying a house together and starting that whole process that is usually reserved for already married/ engaged couples is a huge relationship step! I think it shows they’re definitely ready, as are you and your SO.

Ugh, we got that when we started talking about moving in together six months into our relationship.  SIX MONTHS PEOPLE!  We knew early on that we were going to get married some day but whoa, let us do it in our own time.

We bought a house together and it started. Mostly from family, close friends have never really commented on it. Poor SO was like “I don’t get why everyone keeps asking?” I had to explain that since we bought a house their next natural thought was engagement lol.

haha, it’s just that whole domesticity=marriage thing. Making big purchases together signifies a shift in your relationship, more permanency is assumed if you are shelling out large amounts of cash with each other.

Take it in stride, I’m sure it’s annoying, but at least people approve of your relationship, so that’s good!
