Im new and engaged

Hi me and my fiance got engaged in November 2003, we had only been together 2months but were so in love and we had spoken about getting married.

We were in my bedroom at home and I was doing my make-up and as i looked in the mirror i could see he was down on one knee. I turned around and he said those wonderful words we all love to hear 'will you marry me?' and of course i screamed YES and the ring was & is beautiful. I was so happy and excited, it wasnt a big proposal but i was only 17 and he was 19, it was still special.

In may 2004 we had an engagement party and it was a great night.

In may 2005 i was constantly grumpy with him and bloated and hungary, I done a pregnancy test and as i sat in the bath waiting for the result Lee said 'its positive'. I was in total shock I really didnt believe I was Pregnant, he was so happy but it took longer for it to sink in with me and all i could think about was what i was going to say to mum and dad. But like most parents they soon accepted it and were really pleased for us.

In December 2005 we moved into our flat and on 21st Jan 06 we had a baby girl and now she is 22months old and a tear away toddler. We love her to bits and I'm so happy with the way things have turned out but still really want to get married.

I originally wanted a BIG wedding but now i care more about being MRS and showing people how much I love him so I think we will have a small one with close family and friends. Although we're trying for baby no.2 at the mo so who knows when that'll be!!

Sorry for my life story x x

  • Hey, Me and my h2b are both 24. We got engaged on xmas day, been together 5 and a half years but have been friends for about 15 years went to primary school together. I can not calm down i think i need a good slap, but we are planning on summer 2009 not sure on dates as have not seen the vicar at the church yet to see if we can marry there as we are not part of the parish.

    As you can all prob tell i have no clue where to even begin but i am sure this website will sort me out.
