Remember, we are all here for each other. This pact is there if-and-only-if you feel you need it. There will be times when it is perfectly acceptable to NOT shut-it-up and it is up to each individual bee to decide weither to participate in the pact each week.
Here are the rules/exceptions:
* This is only good for our SO’s. But If you are feeling the need to ‘Shut It Up’ in front of other people, then please share.
* If our SO’s (or Mom, sister, best friend) mention Rings/engagement/wedding/marriage first (related to yours or someone else) then we have the right to respond, but be cool about it.
* I see we have a few Engaged Bees playing lately in order to give the SO some breathing room and become so envolved with planning that SO/FI feels overshadowed, which can happen in the first few months of engagement.
How you can BREAK the pact:
If your SO catches you:
• Watching a wedding show
• Surfing wedding porn on Pinterest
• On the Bee Boards and he makes a face
Or if you:
• Initiate wedding related conversations with SO after you have already clearly established a timeline, (no need to beat a dead horse)
• Threaten to leave your SO and make ultimatums about getting married, as this doesn’t make sense, you either want to be with your SO or you do not.
DISCLAIMER: All Prizes & Points are fictional. I do not know where to get these items. I just looked on Google Images for Bee Themed Prizes. Do an image search if you wish to actually have these items. Time to practice stealth, bees! Good luck!
What I find that is cool about the pact is that it isn’t about denying your feelings or keeping mum on a subject that is important to you. It is about ACCOUNTABILITY! Have that conversation with your SO, establish a timeline, then try to play it cool. After all, marriage is not the ‘end game’, it’s spending the rest of your life with someone.
Other then that, have fun Bee-otches.
