    When it comes to this, you have to make sure that the actual wedding is something that you and Erik want. Not what everyone else wants. Whether you two just go to the courthouse and exchange vows, or fly to Aruba and get married on the beach..it’s something special for you two.

    Now Mr Dork, and I, well we had a quickie wedding at the courthouse with only his sister and neice there. We did it mainly because of immigration issues.

    Once I am allowed to work here in the states we are actually planning a little wedding, either in Vegas, or on the beach in the Bahamas or something (both are something we really want). That way maybe my parents can see us get married, and we can share our special day with a close group of people who are special to us.

  2. Trust me, we’re both very stubborn on what we want and nobody will get in the way of that. We both agreed it has to be romantic.

    That’s great DonnaDork, I hope you share some pictures!

  3. I’m not even sure that it’s kids that ruin marriages 😀

    As far as I can tell, it’s lack of compassion for each other and poor (or dishonest) communication. I can’t imagine you two ever lacking on either of those fronts :heartbeat:

    However you celebrate your love for each other, both when you marry -and- every day, I hope that it makes you feel great!

  4. Maureen – I wasn’t really being serious about the kids thing, more of a fear of mine since my parent’s relationship seemed to fall apart when they had me but who knows. I think kids can throw a wrench into a relationship and if it’s not really sturdy can really hurt it. I think if we had kids we’d handle it very well, especially since Erik would do most of the raising :mwahaha:

    Thanks for that though :hug:

  5. That’s interesting because for me, I wasn’t at all bothered about being engaged and that was more his idea. I was all about just running away and getting married straight away. We’re still going to do the marriage by ourself with no family around, but he got his way with the engagement.
    I think being married means more to me than the actual wedding and that’s why I’m not bothered about the ceremony.
    As long as you’re doing what you want, that’s all that matters. Of course, if you can’t decide what you want, then… that’s tricky! :wave:

  6. Chris – Well whatever we do will be the right thing for us, time will tell. I think I want the engagement so much for 2 reasons A. I’m a HOPELESS romantic and love the idea of being proposed to and B. He’s been planning something for years and I must know what it is :willy_nilly:

  7. Being married, for me, is like living together…only with more jewelry. Husband and I had the wedding we wanted, and to be honest, if I could go back and change things about it I would. But that’s just me. Hindsight is 20/20 and all.

    After being engaged for a year it was almost a relief to get married. But the pressure is never off, as everyone wants to know when you’re going to have kids!

    And believe that joke about wedding cake and sex drives.

  8. Groovy – I don’t believe much would be different other than I’d feel more like a real team (having the same last name and stuff) and having respect (dumb but it’s there). I just want to be engaged and I’ll figure out the rest later.
