I’m not waiting; however, I am probably in the same age range as your mom and aunts, and I do think I understand some of their thinking about this. I don’t know your circumstances, but, if you’re uprooting your entire life to go to the far east with your S.O., most of your family must think that this means that marriage has been discussed and is on the horizon for you.

I can somewhat relate. My SO asked for my dad’s blessing back in February and we moved into together in April.Ever since then, I’ve been feeling the pressure. My older sister (2 years older) has been married for almost 6 years,  my little sister (2 years younger) was married exactly a year ago and my little brother (4 years younger) is proably going to get engaged this summer if he ever saves up enough money. 

My grandparents asked if they needed to clean out the barn again (my little sister had her reception there and now they kind of expect me to do the same, which I’m not going to do). My parents keep telling EVERYONE they know we are getting married next year but alas, there’s one critical part we are missing, the proposal!!! My parent’s friend came up to my SO and I and congratulated us on getting married next year. Then my great aunt did the same thing, saying that my dad said our family would be having a double wedding summer. 

And through all of this, I’m just supposed to stay calm and not pull out my hair?! Good thing I only have like 1 or 2 more big family events until I think we’ll be engaged. I realize they are excited, but come on! They aren’t making it any easier!!
