I just wanted to know if any other bees have had similar experiences with revisions to their engagement -> married timeline. I know with the recession it’s been more difficult for a lot of people with money.
My SO and I have been talking about getting married for a while now. But due to job loss and returning to school we have already pushed back our engagement timeline twice. The first time because he lost his job (totally understandable) and went back to university to finish his Bachelor’s. (I was working on mine when we met) Now we’re pushing back making engagement “official” again because finishing his degree is taking longer than expected. ( I finished my first one, then started working on a second- I guess I love school lol)
It’s just frustrating because we both feel ready to take the next step in our relationship. I suggested getting a less expensive ring for me, but he wants to wait until he can afford a nice one.
Sometimes I feel like it’s never going to happen just because it’s taking so darn long!
