- Wedding: June 2014
I’ve read a TON of stories on waiting and proposals gone wrong and have posted in return about my own
I just got way too much time on my hands, don’t want to be studying for this stupid exam lol…
so PLEASE TELL ME your stories of the time before he was your husband when HE pressured YOU to marry him!
I will start:
My fiance before I accepted his (lack of a) proposal gave me a tiny 14kt white gold, 1/10th of a princess cut diamond and TOLD me we were getting married when we were done with college. I said we will see, it’s a promise ring for now, let’s see where we’re at later.
6 months later, he upgraded the 1/10th princess cut diamond to a 14kt white gold 0.5carat halo which was starting to look very much like an e-ring, I said no college degree, no marriage.
6 months AFTER, he upgraded the 0.5 carat to 1.2carat halo and it was 3 months before I was going to graduate and we were both in our senior year, I had lost weight and needed mine resized and he upgraded it behind my back and I lost the promise ring for the new e-ring! I had to call him over the phone to ask him to make sure the jewelers didn’t make a mistake. He never asked me, never got down on one knee, he just said we are getting married either this year or the next, no more excuses from you!
That was the end of that. I can see how all of his waiting for me to come around caused him anxiety as I get to see it from his perspective when I read the waiting stories and then the resolution of when they finally propose and the girl says yes.
