Lately my SO has been suprising me with his talk about getting engaged. On a couple of occasions, he started off his sentences with “When I propose…..” Just by this I can tell his thought process has shifted to it being a definite thing that will happen in the near future!
A few weeks ago I was mentioning something wedding or ring related, and he said “It’s gonna happen sooner than you think.” I just smiled on the inside and continued the conversation. This makes me so happy!!!
Then just the other day he said…”When I propose I’m not going to ask if you’ll marry me, I am going to ask if you’ll die with me. There’s no divorcing after 20 years. We have to be in it for life, so make sure it’s what you really want.” I thought this was sweet, sincere, and hilarious all at the same time! I just laughed and assured him we were on the same page.
Just yesterday he told me we have to wait until 2013 to have children just in case the world ends in 2012. Lol
Guess I’m just really excited about his recent choice of words 🙂
Anyone else’s SO been speaking engagement/marriage language recently?

Lol, yes, I’ve been listening to it for over 2 years now!!
I know how you feel though, I remember it was sooo exciting at first, and my heart would flutter when I heard it. Now, not so much, it’s more annoying than anything else. But I’m super excited for you and I hope that YOUR SO will do differently and not kill the joy for you by ‘playing it’ like a broken record 😀

Ahh very much so. SO always says, when were married/engaged, we will do this, he will do that. It’s encouraging as his words are now as a plural rather than singular – I just wish his actions were to follow!

Yay those are all really good signs! I’m so excited for you! Especially that comment “Its going to happen sooner than you think”…wow that is so awesome! I would be jumping in my skin 🙂
As a matter of fact, SO initiated a timeline conversation last week! He asked me what I thought about having kids in five years…and getting married in two years! Eeeep! I asked him when he thought we would be getting engaged. He laughed and said he would never tell me exactly (he likes to surprise, and I love being surprised!). I pointed out that we need a year of engagement…so he said “any day from tomorrow to a year from now!” I’m so excited it is on the horizon!
If it were up to me…I’d say engaged in 2012, married in 2014 (I am superstitous about 2013), and trying for kids starting 2016

Ooh how exciting! I totally think it is going to happen very soon! Isn’t it funny how you can just tell when he is on the right page becuase of the words he is using? Ive got my fingers crossed for you!

@Reign14: just in case the world ends in 2012.. buahahaha
Fiance and I used to say we weren’t marrying till 2013 in case the world ended in 2012, we changed our mind but we’re doing it before Dec 21st.
At least you know it’s coming, I love when they’re the ones bringing the marriage subject.

aw, that’s so sweet! Mine doesn’t do it much, he talks more about living together or having kids, but the other day he accidently called our relationship “this marriage”. I didn’t say anything but it made me excited.

I think it’s really sweet he’s so serious about you living your whole lives together. Not that anyone goes into a marriage wishing it won’t work, but he sounds like he has really thought it through. I hope you have an engagment story to share in the “near future” =)
