Is A Year OF Engagement Too Long To Go Before Setting A Wedding Date? – Daily Dilemma
Here is Today's Daily Dilemma:
So last summer, my boyfriend ask me to marry him. We had been together 3 years by then, and I guess I'd have to say I had dropped a few hints before he asked but I really do not think i "pressured" him in any way.
We agreed at the time that we didn't have to set a date right away, and really, I was just happy to be engaged. Now as we head into this summer we still have not set a date. He says it's not that big of a deal, I have the ring, I know he wants to marry me and that when the time is right we will know it. (I assume that means HE will know it)
I told him, that waiting more than a year to "set a date" was unacceptable. That if we did not set a date soon I will probably break off the engagement. I told him it could be two years from now if he wanted, I just wanted to actually have a date set. He is now furious at me for giving him an ultimatum.
Was I wrong?
The "Daily Dilemma" on the Sean and Richie Show is featured every weekday morning at 6:40am. We and the listeners take on someone's problems and try to offer different perspectives. Now, these don't have to be huge problems- it could just be something bothering you or a friend, or it could be some little thing you and another just can't agree on. If you have a dilemma to share we'd love to hear it just e-mail us here at the show.
