Congrats @veritek33, and I really like how getting engaged was a mutual decision/discussion for you. So many times you see people get stressed over the waiting period, this sounds much less stressful and more of a mutual decision, which is a great way to start a marriage.
So happy things are going well @MissD.
I have followed this whole thread, and love getting updates on how everyone is doing. It must be interesting to go back and read what is essentially a journal of your relationships. I have only commented a few times, but I went back and saw some comments about about my now ex boyfriend and it kind of made me laugh. We really loved each other, but our lifestyles and values didn’t totally align and you can even see it in my comment.
