The Beard versus The Greys

Ack, ack, ack!

Yesterday, Never teh Bride found another grey hair. And, the day before that, still another. That makes four since The Beard's birthday. Four! I showed them to The Beard, hoping to help him understand the reality of the situation and the impending fall of my youthfulness, but he simply looked at me and said, "Are you having a quarter-life crisis? I got my first grey hair when I was 20." Oh, woe.

I'm feeling decidedly old.

OK. I'm new to the game. May I ask roughly how old you are, and how old "Beard"is, and how long you've been together?
I'm trying to figure out why you're so into pushing the wedding thing.

Uh, I'm not sure whether to reply to you here or to go post a msg on your blog. Well...

me - 25
The Beard - 26
us - just over 3 years

The thing is, I'm not pushing it. The blog is to express my opinions and concerns, but most of what I say here doesn't cross over into real life. I'm not a "We have to get married, we have to get married," kind of gal.

Yes, I want to get married, because I'm interested in having children sooner (before 30) rather than later. And I'd like to take the next step, as it were, because at this point we are getting into the territory of shared assets and so forth. But mostly I just love him a lot and we often discuss our future together. I am more comfortable thinking about that future as a married couple rather than liberal cohabitators. Nothing complicated.

Good answer. I hope you do, if that's the best thing.
Now,even with all you've apprently planned already, I'm willing to bet, that if he were to propose and set a date, etc., all of this goes out the window, and you begin planning anew. Correct?

Certain elements of the plan would have to be altered, because there is his family to think of, and our friends are scattered across the country, but the general setup should remain the same.

The Beard is okay with getting married on my grandma's property outdoors. He's an easy going guy that way. And my family isn't rolling in the dough, so all of my creative budgeting ideas will still be implemented. But nothing is set in stone!
