I’m going to challenge myself not to say anything about getting married for three months – so until Christmas, basically. I’ve noticed an alarming trend in our relationship where talk of getting engaged has become something of an annoyance to him, which is obviously the exact opposite of what it should be. He knows what timeline I’m comfortable with, he knows my feelings about the subject, and I just don’t think there’s anything else to say about it now that wouldn’t just be me pestering him. So, I’m going to just keep mum on the whole subject.
So, anyone else want to jump on the “not talking about marriage” train with me and pledge not to say ONE WORD about getting married until Christmas?

I will join!! It will be hard especially since I really want to hit him upside the head with a huge e-ring so he can see the light! But yes, I won’t bring up marriage ever! lol

I wish I could, but I failed the 2 week challege miserably. I will stop talking about it for as long as I possibly can!

@crebre80, I’m going to remove wedding/engagement/when? from my vocabulary completely. Unless it’s like, “so and so invited us to a wedding,” it will not be a topic of conversation. I can see that it would be a little harder if it’s part of your job, though!

I’m on board ladies! I’ve been rockin the zipped lips for a while now and our relationship definitely feels lighter, happier, and much less prone to me feeling all stabby 🙂 Added bonus, much like little ms. violet, the boy is now the one dropping hints….
Here’s hoping I can make it through the end of the year…. no promises though 🙂

I’m in! I’m helping 2 friends with weddings, so it’s really hard not to relate everything to how ‘i would want it’ when i talk to him about the planning.. to him (and me) it comes across more like this:’i wish we were getting married so i could put together our wedding and not everyone else’s wedding!’
Ha… good luck to me and everybody else!

I’ve done this but HE REFUSES TO QUIT discussing things.
I throw my hands up.
Love the man so much but he’s gotta slip it on soon or else I won’t have adequate planning time.

I’ll do it with you guys!!!
I can totally see me on Christmas morning though, wearing my Nick & Nora Sock Monkey Pajamas, all the presents are opened, wrapping paper on the floor, and then all my head spins around and I spew out eggnog and rage:
WHERE IS MY RINGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG????????????????????????

But what do we do when he brings it up? Like “I can’t wait to marry you!”
I think I’ll try for a month first. 3 months is a long time. Especially since he just told me recently it will be “sooner than you think”!

lol yeah it is hard since he is my sounding board on all things male related in weddings, but i can bring it up in the context of a client and he would be cool. i have stopped speaking about when we get married because we have so much other stuff going on (moving, custody issues etc)
