Hello. So, I'm a college senior about to graduate come May (yay!) & I'm engaged to a gorgeous man who started his forestry tech degree this spring. His decision to go to college was sort of last minute because he truly was unhappy with his job (roofing). But I totally supported him & we enrolled him. It's a struggle with both of us in school & working part-time but it's brought us closer together. It's also taught us a lot of patience lol. Anyway, we originally were going to get married in 2013 because our parents were really pressuring us to. They have this big thing about us living together unmarried. It's not that we didn't want to. I just didn't want to loose my financial aid for school (plus we were only 20). So then we decided 2014 which was fine for us until he decided to go back to school. We thought about it & we wanted to wait a little longer because he isn't going to graduate until December 2015. School for him & me just starting out working full time would be enough pressure already. Plus, it would be better on us financially (we aren't expecting our parents to pay for much if anything). I'm afraid to tell our family though (his & mine). They have been breathing down our necks about getting married since we first moved in together. We KNOW that we're getting married. We're just trying to be responsible about it because we want to make it last a lifetime. Does anyone have any advice on telling your parents the date has been moved again? I dread it so
