Wedding fever, is this normal?
In the next three months, we have three weddings to go to. It seems like I have hit that age where everyone is getting engaged, married or having a baby... While I am trying to buy a house with my boyfriend and enjoying our lives together with our little peanut (Eleanor, our boston terrier puppy). We have been dating for a year and a half, we had a thing for each other a few years before we got together but we drifted apart. He is 28 and I am 23. I have never wanted to spend my life with anyone more than I do with him.
With all of these weddings and seeing people getting engaged, I can't help but wonder when it will be my turn. We have talked about it before and are on the same page (marriage in our future), I have looked at rings and mentioned things that I like. His mom and I are close and she has told me that he wants to get me something (engagement ring) that is special.
Over the weekend, my mom and I were looking at some of her old jewelry and we found some of her rings that my dad had given her (her first wedding ring and the upgrades). She told me that she wouldn't mind if John (my BF) and I wanted to make a ring out of her rings and my grandfathers ring. But how do I tell him this without freaking him out?
I know that my wedding fever is just going to be fueled more when we actually attend them (he is a groomsman in one). I wonder if he thinks about it as much as I do? Is this normal to feel this way? I just don't want to pressure him in any way... I just love him so much. I know that getting engaged/married is not the start of our lives together, we live together now, have a puppy that is our fur baby and are looking for a house to purchase together.
