- Wedding: August 2019
Ok I need to vent a bit about all this.
My boyfriend and I have been together over 3 years. Last year we started talking about marriage and blending our families (we each have two children from previous relationships) We went ring shopping in May of this year. We were at the jewelry store for 2 hours and had a great time. We both asked a lot of questions and he now has all the details of what I would like. A a month ago he spoke to my mom and dad and got their blessing. Of course my mom told me but he also let me know that he had a chance to talk to them. (He tried a few times at a family get together but there was always too many people around.) Now I have been waiting for what seems like an eternity. He knows that I am not the best at keeping secrets and all I want to do is tell everyone how much we love each other and that we plan on spending our lives together. I was really hoping for a summer proposal so we had at least a few weeks to enjoy our engagement before school and sports starts for the kids (things get really busy really quick once that all starts with 4 kids).
To add a little more stress to the mix his ex wife will be having a baby in mid September. Her and her boyfriend aren;t married yet but they are very serious and have been together for a while. They are wonderful people and everyone gets along great. The thing is for me – if it doesn’t happen before that then who knows how long until life settles down a bit. PLUS what if they get engaged in the mix of all of this?
I know it probably seems a little petty and selfish but I just wish it would happen soon because the stress of it all is killing me. It shouldn’t be an anxious time it should be happy. I have never been married before, or even had a ring on my finger – except for when we were shopping 🙂 so I guess I am just looking forward to it all and feel like I will be stressed until it happens. Any words of advice on how to relax a bit?
