Today’s post is part of an ongoing Wedding Wednesday Series. My chance to ramble on about non-running, wedding related stuff.
Somehow, without intention, not for any specific reason, not due to religious views or worries of what our parent’s would think, or for convenience factors did we ever embark on an experience that today seems to be highly accepted.
It just never really became a huge issue for either of us.
We had even talked about it once or twice in casual conversation but then the conversation sort of dead ended.
We’ve been seeing each other for almost two years now and some are completely flabbergasted to the fact that we haven’t committed to this act just yet.
And honestly, I never thought of myself as that girl who would wait it out until marriage.
I seriously thought when I found the one I would jump all over the chance.
But it always seemed like there were so many other factors to incorporate too.
We didn’t just want to take this huge step lightly either. I mean this was a BIG commitment to make.
We also wanted our first time to be special. And it could make or break our relationship depending on how and when we decided to take the next step.
The longer we waited, the more I thought about it and wanted it.
I kind of wondered if he did too. I mean we had been dating quite awhile and really everything felt right.
And by the time we get married we will have been dating over two years which makes me even more nervous at times.
I just hope our first time isn’t too awkward you know?
I think what makes it more special for the both of us is knowing that it will be both our first times together.
But I know he will make the best roommate ever! 🙂
I find it funny that neither J. Alabama and I have lived with significant others before and have decided to wait until after our wedding to live together. Due to our leases and other random factors, it never really made sense to move in together until after the wedding.
This post was actually inspired by a post I read from Michelle last week. This post had me in fits of laughter at all the little quirks and things that we have to look forward to once we wed and live together.
So technically this post is not a wedding Wednesday post per say, but it felt wedding Wednesday-esque.
So please, if you have any tips to share with the newbie (about living with your signif) , let me hear em’! I have had a boy roommate before, just not one that I was in a relationship with.
Happy Wedding Wednesday Friends!
