My boyfriend was telling me about a proposal and marriage discussion he had recently with his roommate and roommate’s girlfriend who are also heading toward marriage. He’s been pretty open about wanting to marry me for the better part of the past year, and we talk about the future all the time but have never talked about a concrete timeline. He said he was thinking about proposing in around 3 years, which is perfect for us! The main idea is to be financially stable before we are engaged, and in three years I will hopefully be done with grad school and employed and he will have been working for a few years.
He even said that he has some really good ideas for proposing, and that it might include a puppy. I feel so lucky to have a guy who is so excited and ready to marry me. Even if our life plans change, I know now that he wants to propose as soon as our life is stable enough to start a marriage. All my friends are single and looking, so I don’t really have anyone to share this with in real life!
