- Wedding: August 2016
Hi. So this is my first post. I’ve been lurking on the website for a while now but I finally signed up so I wanted to introduce myself and give you a little bit of a background on me.
So my SO and I have been together for more than 7 years; January will be 8 years. We knew that we were right for each other and knew we wanted to get married when we were 6 months into the relationship. We’ve been living together for 6 years amd we are still in our mid-20s.
Back in January of this year, my father had called me, asking me to come and talk with him. When I did, he asked me what I planned to do with my life and if I ever got married, would I be financially stable to raise my children. Then my father asked if my SO and I could come to the house the next day to talk to us. This conversation really confused me, nevertheless, I came home and told my SO and my best friend the weird conservation I had with my father and how he’s been asking me all these weird questions. A day after, my SO came clean and told me that he had asked my parents for their blessing back in December. My mother gave him her blessing, but he said my father stared at him like a deer in headlights. My SO wanted to propose to me on our 7th year anniversary. My SO was disappointed that my parents ruined his surprise but I had no idea!
After that whole ordeal, my father still hasn’t gave my SO his blessing yet but my SO never went back to convince him. My SO let me pick out my diamond for my engagement ring but I left it up to him to pick the ring setting. At first, my SO wanted to get married on 12/13/14 when he first asked my parent for their blessing but when that didn’t work out, I picked Sept. 20, 2015. After a while, I thought that maybe getting married next year was just too soon. I wanted to make sure I could have a wedding I wanted so now we are looking at August 20, 2016. I just feel weird trying to plan a wedding without being engaged first. So now I’m just waiting to be proposed to. We have the diamond but I’m leaving the ring setting up to him so idk when he will do that. We looked at ring settings after getting the diamond but that was the last of that.
That is just a little background on me. I live hearing about other people’s waiting stories andni wanted to share mine.
