you make a very good point. That said, today I am very much in an I am right and we shouldn’t have to keep waiting mood :p haha, but you are right. I’m not going to say his timing is perfect either, but I have to believe it will work out eventually and then be the right time for us.

Showers are great for philosophy! I feel similarly. We are not yet engaged, but we both knew after the first date that this is it. Our relationship has changed so much since then, and even in the last couple of months alone it has matured hugely. Although waiting is sometimes frustrating, we should see it as a time for the relationship to grow into the most stable foundation for a marriage.

Brownbear23:  Your post is so true!  I have been with my fiance for 7 years, and we have been engaged for 9 months.  We knew we wanted to marry when we were 19 years old, but maaaan we also knew we wanted a lot of things to be right first!  We wanted to feel like we had built a life as individuals and as partners, attain higher degrees, travel, explore and be financially comfortable.  A few years ago I reallly got the itch and started feeling like the time was NOW and that he should HURRY UP.  And though I think it should be a joined decision, I’m glad he didn’t pop the question until he did!  Like you said, we would have been very happy if we’d married a few years ago I’m sure, but I feel SO perfectly ready now with everything we’ve worked for on our own and together…  I hate that I worried so much about it, because it really did happen once the time was right.  : )

Brownbear23:  Very true. I thought we were ready over two years ago when we first moved in together. Thats when all the “waiitng” technically started for me but looking back on who we were then and what we’ve grown into even in such a short amount of time, I know that we weren’t acutally ready then.
