My cousin is planning her wedding. She's been with her man just over 2 years (when she found out her son was his). They hadn't even been dating before she had the baby, there was a one night thing between riends and when she knew for sure...well, they tried it out and things were going well... and she's planning her wedding. I'm going to be a bridesmaid.
SO's sister is planning her wedding. She's been seeing this guy almost 5 years and cohabitating for 2. I'm going to be a bridesmaid.
SO and I have been together for 7 years. We've been living together most of that time. We have 2 kids, the oldest is just about 5. We have been talking about getting married since month 1. But we can't afford a wedding. I want, more than anything, to truly be his wife. He's asked me time and time again if I want to go to the courthouse and make it official. It would be like abandoning a dream though. Especially now, with these 2 women who are my best friends, planning their lovely weddings...It stings!
I want to BE married more than I want a wedding (which some women can't honestly say) but I want to feel like we did something special...not just signed a piece of paper.
Can I get some advice, ladies? Or even some words of encouragement? 7 years is long enough as a live in girlfriend.
I say go to the court house.... get married... then plan a wedding when you can afford one... like on an anniversary or something!!! Who cares what others are doing... if you want to be his wife, be his wife!!
