Greetings from relationship purgatory!
My super awesome boyfriend and I have been dating for about five years now, living together for about a year. Lately our relationship has felt healthier, happier and stronger than ever, which is awesome.
The not-so-awesome part is that, being in our mid-to-late twenties we (admittedly mostly myself because I’m the giiirrrrl) have been getting a lot of pressure about when/if we are going to get married!
We are planning on getting hitched… eventually. But, we just don’t feel that getting married is a priority right now.
Lately every time we see family or friends though the conversation always comes around to, “So, when’s the wedding?” Our answers never seem to satisfy anyone, and it’s a bummer to feel like those closest to us no longer feel like our relationship is “enough,” even though we are really happy.
So, Homies, does anyone have a really good script or advice for dealing with family and friends who want to pressure you about your relationship status?
