Have you thought of this before the engagement, after the engagement, during the wedding planning?
I am sure most of your time, energy and excitement (even stress and frustration) has been taken up planning for your special day BUT after the day has come and gone………what is you next chapter, aim, focus?
Are you gonna start focusing on caring for or building even buying the house, popping out babies (words of my BFF…LOL), WHAT?!!
I would love to hear WHAT’S NEXT? from my fellow Bees.
For me I am still to determine this! What about you……???*Twilight Zone sound effects*

Our plan is too continue growing together as a couple, take a few years to just be with eachother and do things together as a married couple. Then we want to buy a house/start having children.

@Mz Izzie: We haven’t thought about it in great detail, but there are a few things we’d like to achieve over the next 2-5 years:
– We want to take a honeymoon. We’re waiting until spring 2014 to go (we’re getting married in November 2013), but it’ll be a fun thing to look forward to.
– We want to buy a house. We’ve gotten pretty comfortable in our apartment (it’s actually pretty spacious and nice), but we’d love to actually own something.
– We’re going to start trying to have kids. He wants kids more than I do, but we’ve both agreed that it’s kind of “now or never” for us since we’ll be 29 (me) and 31 (him) by the time we’re married. I know women have kids well into their 40’s, but that’s not something I’d personally be interested in doing.
– We’d like to get a dog. We can’t have one in our apartment (and really we wouldn’t want to have one here), but we’d love to get one once we move into a house.

I won’t be finished with my teaching credentials until the following year, but we plan on starting to try for a baby around September of the year that we’re married…then hopefully a house the following year 🙂 We’ll see how things go!

We’ll enjoy each other for a few years and use that time to save for a house and travel a lot. The rough plan is to buy our forever house 2-3 years after we’re married (already have a small one) and start TTC 3-4 years after we’re married.

We have a house already, so after the wedding I plan on focusing all my attention on furthering my career and finishing my Master’s degree, which should be done mid 2014. We will travel and grow together as a couple. Babies are not in the picture for another 3-4 years.

- Wedding: May 2013 - The bride's hometown United Methodist Church near Kalamazoo
I voted for “other”: an internship, and then graduate school! No house or babies for us for QUITE a while (we plan to be in apartments for quite some time: first for our 3 years of graduate school, then as we save money), and no babies for at least 5 years. But I’m sure graduate school will keep us PLENTY busy!!

There’s so much more out there than babies, houses, and spiritual growth! We really felt like life itself was so fulfilling that checking off an expected “life list” box wasn’t super necessary. We traveled the world for 8 months, moved, got new jobs, made new friends, and enjoyed ourselves. Over 2 years later, we just now are getting around to buying a place. Babies aren’t on the horizon for another couple of years at least.

@Miss Bat: Grad school pretty much is a baby. It’s expensive and exhausting. But the results are worth it.

WEEELLLL, I’m an animation student and I will have just graduated before we get married and he JUST started his innactive duty in the Corps and has started college at Le Cordon Blu. So, after our wedding we will go wherever his externship is ( might be Alaska) and then we will go wherever I can find a job and then he will continue his college education 🙂

We’ll both be graduating, and then we’ll move (likely up to Boston) for his grad degree in architecture.
He toured Yale today, and seemed to really like it. They said they would help me find a job if he got accepted. <3 His Harvard tour is tomorrow.
