- Wedding: October 2013
I apologize ahead of time that this is long.
I have been browsing Weddingbee for a while thanks to my best friend then finally decided join. This is my first post and I am sure that many will follow.
My SO and I have known each other for five years; we met during our undergraduate studies. We have been together for over a year and a half and have been living together for over a year. We are strong communicators and have discussed marriage since we began dating. I have been patient with waiting until recently. . .
Last September, my SO asked me to get a better idea of the e-ring I wanted. After a while, I found a wedding set that I loved and was me. I told my SO and after a few e-mails that he asked me to send, it was in his hands.
Unfortunately, the universe decided to not be kind to us and we had more expenses than normal (repeated car repairs, medical bills, etc.). With the set I wanted costing a little under $3000, our engagement kept getting pushed back.
After several conversations over several months, my SO asked me to look for something more affordable. After many more discussions and tears, I found an e-ring that I love and is us not just me. And the set would be under $200.00! My SO agreed that it was us, affordable, and that it would become my e-ring.
Since then I have found it very hard to wait and I don’t know how to do so as patiently as I once waited. Any suggestions or advice?
