I am 22, yes kinda young, but have been legally divorced for over a year and emotionally for moer like 2. I was married right out of high school. Now, I have been with my boyfriend for a year, but have been friends with him since we were in high school, we are not engaged yet, but talk about it a lot and know that is what we both want. Today is our one year and just thinking about it a bit more than usual. If/when we get engaged what is an expected time limit? I read some other posts saying that the older you are the more easily it is accepted, but that is not my case. My BF has not been married, so wondering what would be expected to wait once we do get engaged and what is the protocol for showers and such since I have already been through it? I feel he deserves everything, but I shouldn't really because I have already done it all. I feel rude asking for more, maybe sooner than what I should... Any opinions?
