I really like wedding bees !!! I
m lurking for a few month and dreaming.. Im from Switzerland and this is very exciting for me, because so many things are completely different here. Please forgive me my inperfect english – I am still learning.
m together with my "boyfriend" for more than five years. Im getting 40 this year, he is 44. We live together with my two teenage daughters for more than 3 years.. I
m waiting for a looooong time. Sometimes he introduces me as his wife - this is hurting me, because I am not. I became a christian after two years together and marriage means a lot to me. We live in Switzerland and here its normal, to live together whitout marriage.
But at our vacation in Florida this month, I asked him for ring shopping and he came with me. And he really buyed me a ring !!! He told me it was his plan to ask me on my 40-th birthday in April 2013. So I am very, very, very happy now !! I`m so glad to have clarity now !!! My dream will come true. I just have to wait three more month to his proposal and my gorgeous diamond ring!!!! (I never had one before – this is not common in Switzerland to have a engagement ring)
So I can
t wait for my birthday... Im soooo happy !!

Good luck girl and congrats! You’ve waited long enough and deserve a “confirmation”. Though livin together is almost the same as marriage in Europe, a proposal and a ring makes it extra special.
Let’s hope (diamond) engagement rings get more common in Europe:)

Hy Bees… I’m engaged !!! Finally !!! He gave me the ring as birthday present and said nice things things to me in front of all my family and friends – but he didn’t asked me the question.. He said he will propose to me in a totally unexpected moment when we are alone. He makes it really thrilling !!! I’m okay with that – we are engaged, I have a amazing diamond ring and the official proposal will come. So I’m really happy !!!!
Thanks to everybody for encouraging me !!!
