The other weekend, the Penguin made a comment that I was going to be waiting another 2 years for him to save up before proposing. I was shocked! Two years from today, makes me 29 and a half which means we wouldn’t be getting married until I am 30….I’m not that concerned about being married in my 30s, BUT I have a lot of other future plans that will then be conflicting.
1. Trip to Africa for my 30th birthday
2. Buying a new house after living in my current place for 5 years (age 31)
3. The possibility of having children (age 32-34)…getting married at age 30 doesn’t leave a lot of marriage time before having a child!
4. Other friends getting married! I don’t want to have too many conflicting weddings!!!!
Mind you, the Penguin is 3 years older than me. So if we get married when I’m 30, he will be 33 and then he will be in his late 30’s when kids come around (if we have kids) and that seems old!!! I just don’t understand how it will take an additional 2 years before proposing!
