Not Engaged Yet
Help! Pre-engagement drama
Here's the deal:
My boyfriend Sean and I have been wanting to get married for years, but we've never had the means because of college and lack of income. Now he has a good job and we are about to graduate with the 'means.' We have both talked about it and we want to get married this fall.
However, my sister is getting married June 2nd and people (mainly his mother) are telling us to wait to be engaged until after her wedding so we don't take away from "her moment." My boyfriend is being pressured because of this reason to wait to ask me, and I feel bad and guilty doing anything as well.
The thing is, I've been dreaming of getting engaged at this time and would love to have an engagement/graduation party. I also want to have enough time to plan my own wedding.
I want to be there for my sister... but why does my moment have to be delayed? Can we both enjoy the best times of our lives?
