@Artificial-Sweetener:  I think people are just excited for you, to see you move through these stages in the relationship 🙂 I know it can get annoying! I’m waiting on an engagement (see my recent post lol) but our wedding will also be 18-24 months from now and my Mother is like, explain to me again why you’re not getting married next fall (2013)? Mom, we need to save and SO needs to get to a particular milestone in his Ph.D. program, remember? The important things? 🙂 She’s just excited.

HA! My aunt stopped waiting around for the engagement before she moved on to baby time! 

Seriosly, she was asking for the first 2 years of dating, when are we getting engaged? Then, about 6 months before we were even engaged, she had alreadyhopped ahead to when are we havinga baby?!? 

This is just what family does– don’t let them get to you.  They mean well, even if it does feel a little pushy.

HA! I know how you feel. I got back from the vacation I got engaged on on a Sunday and Monday morning at work people asked if I had set a date. I was like, seriously? It JUST happened and felt the ened to explain until I find a venue, I can’t definitively set a date in stone. Then I did set a date (2 years down the road) and people were all “why are you waiting so long?”. Now people barely ask anything anymore because its so far off. Whatevs!

Girl preach. My Fi and I have been together for years. We knew we wanted to fight being a statistic so were waiting until we were older to even think about engagement. As soon as it happened, like less than an hour later, we were bombarded with date/theme/etc requests/suggestions. It’s nice that people are excited but it gets a bit much. I bet you’re also enjoying the constant assumptions that people are invited to your wedding you haven’t even planned lol. I always thought being engaged was going to be sunshine and rainbows but it’s mostly just us fielding questions/opinions and trying to plan a wedding in a way that keeps us sane. : )

@Artificial-Sweetener:  lol welcome to my life two weeks after I was married. It doesn’t stop unless you TELL them to quit it (which is what I did). What makes it worse is that we’re CBC, but I can’t imagine what it must be like for those who are trying but are struggling.

People.
