Hi everyone, I absolutely love reading this website because I can't wait to marry the love of my life someday at Disney where Ive always dreamed of getting married. My boyfriend and I are celebrating our 5 year anniversary together in a few weeks, and we have known we wanted to marry eachother since a few months into our relationship. Recently, we have been talking about getting engaged soon a lot and even looking at rings! I am 23 and in medical school so we aren't going to be able to get married for quite a few years still, so originally I wasn't really expecting to get engaged yet but I have been so excited about it lately because it seemed like it was coming soon. However, my boyfriend is 26 and has recently decided he wants to go back to school to get a better job. I am very happy for him, but we talked about it and it seems like it will basically take getting engaged off the table for a couple (2-3) more years. I am pretty upset about this, but I don't want to tell him and make him feel bad about it and I just feel like theres no one I can talk to about it. Did anyone else have to wait a really long time before getting engaged or married, and were you happy about it in the long run? I know I shouldn't be upset because we are still pretty young and wont be getting married for 5-7 years anyways (when I am done with my residency yikes!), but it is just hard not to be upset. Thanks in advance for any advice you can give me. Thanks!
