- Wedding: June 2016
So, I have officially been in waiting since January-when we had the marriage talk he said he wanted to get married but he would do the asking. After several birthdays, holidays, and special days, nothing was happening. My SO even became very comfortable, IE: not being very romantic, bossing me around, no appreciation, ETC. I was starting to get really sick of everything and was super close to sitting him down and dicussing where we were headed, and if he even cared about the relationship for that matter. So his family came to visit a few weeks ago (of course I wasnt going to bring it up then) and we were all sitting around talking about homeownership (my boyfriend owns his own home, but I moved in last year and we split the bills now). Well, my boyfriend and I have been discussing better ways to invest our money, and we both agreed that we would like to purchase a home together to rent out. However of course, I only agreed to do this once we are married…I mean, with what I have been through and how many times I have been screwed over, there is no way even engagement and a nice shiny rock will convince me to put my name on a mortgage loan for us both. Anyway, he agreed, and told his family in front of me that he wants to get married. (Made me happy since I have been through a few months to where I thought he wasnt even sure anymore) Since then, he has been amazing, making me feel important, helping me out around the house, being affectionate again, the works…basically, back to being the guy I fell in love with, but also talking about our future including marriage. We have an appointment tonight with a realtor to see the house, so if we are both really into it and agree on purchase I see a proposal coming in my very near future!!! The only thing is we may have to get married at the courthouse and have a wedding next summer if we do make this purchase, but thats fine with me!!!
It’s just been a good waiting day 😀
