You didn't say but do you happen to be an only child? The only daughter? The last child at home? The first to leave?

You're almost 26 and leaving the nest for the first time to go be an adult instead of her little girl. 26 years from now your daughter will be wondering what your problem is while she's planning her future.

The marriage SHOULD follow "not too long afterwards"....I was on a CD thread not too long ago where the guy had been "engaged" for 18 years....and couldn't understand why his significant other felt disrespected that he keeps putting off the marriage......something he considered of no importance was a thorn in her side.
It happens a LOT.....an engagement means nothing in my books...it's the marriage that deserves celebration.
