- Wedding: May 2012
Hello everyone! I am brand new to this site!
I am very excited and happy to say I am engaged!
We have been together for 7 years as of last month and we are 19 and 20 years old.
We have had a rocky road and have been through an awful lot together, especially for our age. A lot of people in both of our families have been unsupportive of our reltionship for a long time. It started out because they thought we were too young to be so serious. Now, its because he lacks good work ethic. I realize how that is a problem but over the past year I have seen a real change. 🙂
He plans to move to where I live, because our hometown where he is currently has nothing to offer, and that is part of the problem.
With all that said, I am sure you all would like to hear about our engagement?
On Tuesday of this week, it was his birthday. I always do something special for his birthday so this year I took him to a Hinder concert. Earlier in the day we had went to Kmart so I could find his present I hadnt been able to find elsewhere, so he wondered off so I could look without him knowing what it was. While I am looking he is apparently at the jewelry counter trying to find a ring.
While we are sitting at the concert waiting for Hinder to come out he says I got you something too! I said you did? Its your birthday though! He said, well you might just get it while Hinder is playing. So now I am impatient and its 3 or 4 songs into the concert and nothin yet. Then my favorite song comes on, the song that got me started on Hinder, the song HE introduced to me. Lips of an Angel. He starts to put the ring on my finger and says in my ear because that is the only way I could hear him, MARRY ME! 🙂 I said yes of course! I thought he was being silly, but when the lights came on, I saw the ring and realized wow, this is for real!!
I am so excited and cannot wait to be married to him. But I am worried about telling the people in my family who have been unsupportive all these years and will probably continue. Does anyone have advice, or have gone through soemthing similar?!
