There has been a date that is sort of set. Well at least there is a date that I have been telling everyone. In reality I do not see that date sticking very well as it is a little over a year away and I have not even started planning at all. I pretty well know what I want as long as John agrees with me. Which if you know John and I well, we are polar opposites on what we want. If it was up to him I would not have a white dress. We would be looking like we were on our way to some crazy role-playing game. I have four words for that. NO WAY IN HELL!!!
One of our major hiccups is the whole money factor. Since it will be both of our’s first marriage we want to do it right. That costs a whole lot of money that we do not have. We are too proud to ask for it ourselves to so there is no need to go there either. We do take care of each other and the kid very well. As long as we have been together, we already act like an old married couple.
To answer all the questions that I get sometimes daily. Yes, eventually we will get married. Yes, we do love each other enough to get married. No, we are not in a big hurry to get married. Obviously! More than likely you will be invited to the wedding if you are a close friend or family to either of us. More than likely I am putting it off more than he is only because he is the most indecisive man on the planet. If I was to tell him to show up, wear this, and do this, he would. We just want everything to be right and right now we can not pull that off.
Things can and most of the time do change. With my new job, I can start putting more money back to the getting hitched fund. In December, we should be at the point where we can merge health insurance so we will no longer have to worry about kid being without insurance. Having a child with an epilepsy tag on their health records made for many issues with health insurance premiums.
We are getting there but it is a long road ahead. I do suspect that in another three years we will still be happy and together. We just might be married to! I would not hold your breath!
Have a happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone! Now someone please pass me the corned beef and cabbage stat!
