someone told us that a couple already living together 'don't need a honeymoon.'  We laughed.

I know a few people who had the courthouse wedding...basically just signed the papers and whatnot...and then got married again in a few months.

For all those couples it was because they're religious, already had a wedding planned, but their new apartment/house came through before the wedding. So they got legally married so as to avoid impropriety.

I've wanted to renew our vows for too long now

I don't have a vision in my head yet, there's no pressing need other than that's I want and of course other things going on

So yeah I can see time getting away from you

If he doesn't want to talk about it, I still need to analyze the true why because it makes a huge difference... if you two can't talk it'll be a looooooooong 50+ years

I feel like once you have a kid with the person getting married isn't all that important. I mean, your brother is going to be involved with the woman for the next 18 years which is longer than most marriages anyway.

Depending on their finances, it might make more sense not to get married.

my sister did hers at 10 years . That's the soonest I've seen it done and people were side eyeing them lol.
We do something private and personal every year.

re: bold, I agree with that. If a person/friend asked me  how long is too long to be engaged, I'd say  --longer than you want to be.

Yeah that's a thing some guys do and when they do marry it usually falls apart in a few years.

Or they end up dumping the long engagement woman then run off & marry the next chick they date right away.

We think our friend's bf proposed to shut her up, they had been dating 6months and she was already whining about "when is my time?, lets just break up then"...he thought the wedding would be a year+ later...she wanted a wedding asap, wedding was 2months after engagement, which she said was actually late, she paid for it Stern Smile

When people get engaged, both parties should be excited about getting married, picking a date, etc, be it a small or big event, or simply eloping. After a year engaged and no marriage, you are wasting time.
