Long Engagement vs. being apart for first 8 months of marriage?
Me and my Coastie just got engaged, and we're trying to figure out the best course of action as far as the date of our wedding goes.
I'm currently in school, and he's stationed about 3 hours north of me. We were originally talking about getting married once I got out of school (another 2 1/2 years) so that I could move up to where he is stationed and start my life with him once I graduate. But as we've been engaged for a couple of months now, we're thinking that this long engagement isn't really the best. I find myself wishing away the rest of my college career so I can get married, and I don't really like that I'm doing that. We discussed getting married the summer before my last year of school, but then we would be apart for a good portion of our first year as a married couple.
Does anyone have experience with this or advice as far as which way to go?
Thanks so much!
