We're really not sure yet...we've got our hearts set strongly on getting actually properly married (none of this civil union nonsense) here in Cali and it's still not legal :( but I'm thinking within the next couple of years that should hopefully be sorted out. It seems we're getting there, after all of the business last year. I can't see it being very much longer...but if a certain amount of time passes and it's still not legal we'll have to see how we're feeling about everything.
But that's all alright for now, I suppose, as we can't quite afford a wedding at the moment (because she's hoping for something on the kind of bigger size, lol, and we want it to be perfect!)
So it may or may not be a pretty long engagement...but just knowing that there's no way I want to spend my life with anybody else, I really wanted to be able to give her a ring, even with this much uncertainty about when it can actually happen, lol
Cowgirl, when you say stuck in the mud, what specifically are you referring to?
