- Wedding: January 2014
So I don’t have many friends that I can talk to about this but i want to hear some opinions.
Me and my boyfriend have been together since we were 16 years old, and we are now both 24 years old, we have been through highschool and college together and have been living together for over a year now.
I’ve recently started to feel the need to move forward, I can’t explain why, some time ago just being his girlfriend and being introduced as his girlfriend was alright but now i wish there was somthing more. Most of my friend went “crazy” when I told them that we have been together for 8 years, and say things like: “woo… you guys are already married” because most of then never been with someone more then 2 years or something. The thing is, we are not married or engaged for that matter.
We have talked about marrige and he says he wants to marry me, have kids with me (mini-me’s as he calls it), and we are so good together, he is a loving, caring man and we love eachother dearly 🙂 I want him to propose to me, and he talked about it before, one day he said he wanted to have kids with me and I replied that we needed to get married first, and he said that we will, and then I said that first he needed to propose because was something so important to me, that i don’t needed it to be a super huge suprise, but it needed to be sincere.
But now I was thinking, am I too young to get married? That is why he didn’t propose yet? He is already working, but he is not happy about his current position and he wants to change jobs, I’m finishing my degree and currently trying to find a job, maybe is not the right time, and I’m just dreaming about a proposal?!
A few nights ago we when out with a couple, his friend and his fiancé, that I meet that night. She was wearing a beautiful ring and asked me when would I get one too, and I just didn’t know what to say… they are older then we are, they are 28, but have been together for less time then we are, and yet they are going to get married and I don’t.
I’m thinking maybe I’m too young, I don’t know many girls of my age that are already married, but since we live together and are so happy with eachother, why not? I think the big question is the when… because he said that he wants to get married but never said anything about the timing. I just wanted some commitment…
Can you tell me what you think? It will be very helpful, since most of my friend are male and care nothing about this kind of business and my bestfriend is an “anti-marrige” kind of girl and she would just say that I’m crazy to think about something like this.
Thank you :)**
