Honestly, my life didn’t change at all aside from a sparkly ring on my finger and fun wedding planning. I still do all the same thing I used to do and have the same relationships.

ive never had to get super involved with his family in these 4.5 years, we are cordial with eachother but i feel now that i will have to incorporate them more now, and have to get to know my Future Mother-In-Law better. and i kinda feel indifferent about it, i know thats a little harsh to say.

english is their 2nd language so that adds another factor into my stress level, understanding them isnt always easy.

Only thing that changed was more stress from wedding planning / looking for a house and feeling more like an adult lol

My life didn’t really change all that much when we got engaged.  We were already living together, so that didn’t change.  The only thing that really changed was adding the stressful wedding planning to the mix.  Don’t get me wrong, I can’t wait to be Mrs. G., but I am so ready for us to be able to go back to being carefree and happy and not having to worry about what we’re serving people, where they’re setting or who’s paying for what.  <3

Life didn’t change much after getting engaged…. Except the planning drama.

Nothing has really changed other than our lives being consumed by wedding planning. I think we need more date nights!

hmmm…. I cant really think of anything id be missing. I’ve lived with him for over a year! I think I wont miss having to plan the wedding.. that will be so stressful unforunately..

and also having to bond more with his parents.. his parents and i get along well – especially his mom – but there still isnt that super strong bond that i’ve always dreamed of with my in-laws. oh well.. still plenty of time to develop that 😛

I don’t think I’ll miss anything but I do try to cherish our relationship the way it is now but it’s hard when waiting gets frustrating. There’s a lot more things I look forward to.

I won’t miss a thing. I can’t imagine anything changing since we already have a joint checking acct., live together, etc.  Getting married just seals the deal.

Nothing really changed after I got engaged, and now that I am married still not much has changed. 🙂

Once your engaged family seems to think that now they are able to be up in your relationship all the time. Uggh.
