Engaged & Proposals
we took my mom and dad to dinner to tell them. my mom asked "WHY?!" when we told her, my dad didn't say anything. not once did we hear congratulations, good for you, or likewise. just "WHY??" nice, eh. thats the way it goes. we are happy with our lives and know that the people making these comments aren't. so we just let it go. i've learned who i can talk about the wedding with and who not to mention it to.
Most of my friends and family were very happy for me and I do get a lot of congratulations and I am so happy for you but I get a lot of so when are you going to have kids??? Seriously, people marriage does not always equate to having children!!! We don't want any!!!! If I wanted a child I would have had one by now since I am 37 years old!!!!! Also my mom who absolutely adores my FH and was genuinely happy for us told me that if it were her she would never get married!!! Nice huh? She is still married to my father!!! I do understand where she is coming from because my father is an incredibly difficult man to deal with and she is seriously a saint but please don't say that to your only child lol. I have waited so long to go to school, have a career, and meet the right person for me. Let me enjoy it!!! Oh and btw taking the time to plan a wedding if you choose to is wise. I do not understand why people want others to have a 3 mth engagement! lol We were engaged January 09 and will be getting married Aug '10. If there is real lasting love there it doesnt matter how long the engagement is for!!
