  • Wedding: September 2013

I can relate (somewhat!) my SO and I have been together for 6.5 years, we’re both 28…I’ve had the wedding itch for a while and we’ve always talked about getting married someday.  We both knew we needed to become more financially stable and his previous job went downhill with the economy while he was in college. The waiting wasn’t so bad until he graduated in May and landed his dream job with a major company.  At that point he started talking about how happy he was that he got this job and that now we could actually afford to move out of our apartment, get married, etc.  Needless to say, I caught wedding fever bad!

Recently he randomly came home showing me pictures of Bermuda and looking up airfare and prices for August/September 2013 and told me that’s where he’d like to go on our honeymoon.  I asked if that was when he thought we’d get married and he said  “Yeah, I figured sometime next fall would be enough time for you to plan.” Still no ring yet tho Frown…but I’m hoping for Christmas! 

My advice to you is to be patient with him! It’s obvious he loves you and wants to marry you! You never know, he may be trying to work something out, or has a plan to propose on a specific day next year. He may just be waiting for Christmas or New Years and is trying to keep it a surprise!  I know the wait is tough, but give him some time!

I totally understand how your feeling about it seeming like forever. My SO and I have been together for over 8 years and there is still no ring. He knows how much I truly want to get married. He states that he cant wait to get married to me and start our lives together but I feel like he is j ot even thinking about proposing anytime soon. Ive recently decide to try and keep quiet and not mention anything (which is hard to do). We r not living together yet even so thats also hard on me not being able to wakeup next to him every morning. I wanna start having kids in a couple of years and dont want to have to get married and have kids right away. We went on vacation this past september and I really thought he would propose but it never came. Just feeling like its never gonna come anytime soon.
