Any others out there who aren’t married, aren’t engaged, and aren’t (actively) waiting?
I’m in a long term relationship, we live together, but there are currently no plans to get engaged, and there won’t be for at least a couple years. Anyone else in the same position?
(for the inevitable “why be on a wedding forum site” question, because its a great community with way more than wedding chat to offer!)

@CherryBombGirl: Yep, me too. Love the boy and live with him already, but engagement probably a couple of years off. I think if I was expecting it now, I’d be a very frustrated little chicken well before it happens.
As to why Im here- supportive bridesmaid! well that’s how I found it, anyhow.

Me!! My Boyfriend or Best Friend and I recently had a very serious conversation about our future together. He feels kind of neutral about marriage in general. I think I want to get married, but I still waffle back and forth sometimes so I know that I’m not ready for it yet (if ever)! We’ve lived together and have been dating for 5 years and are very happy. We’re best friends. I don’t think marriage would change anything about our relationship.
I just started a new career so I’d like to throw myself into work for a good solid year and then revisit the marriage topic. Neither of us is in any huge hurry. 🙂

I have been with my boyfriend for 4 years and we are moving in together on Saturday. We talk about marriage a lot and agree that we want a future together. But I don’t think of myself as “waiting.” I don’t feel ready to be engaged. I know I want to marry my SO, but I don’t see an engagement coming for at LEAST a year.

Oh and I found this board when I was acting as Maid/Matron of Honor for my sister. Now I just like it because I LOVE weddings and I like talking about relationships 🙂

I’m in a serious, but still newish relationship and I’m not ready to get married for the next few years, plus we live in different countries so we have to figure out how we’re going to live in the same place. However, wedding fever IS sweeping my social group in a major way and given that I’ve been to a grand total of maybe five weddings ever, I wanted to learn more about etiqutte stuff. Also, I thought the general relationship sections could be helpful. But now I’m addicted because there’s such a wealth of topics and many have nothing to do with weddings–family, religion, career, politics, etc.
