I have been engaged for four years, I feel like this is a long time. I guess we just are not ready but I'm not sure. So how long is too long, and how much longer should I wait.
My sister and her fiance have been engaged for about 9 years. Personally, I think it's too long but for them, they both have things they want to accomplish before they get married. They want to be able to spend good money on their wedding and help their family come together for it, which right now just isn't in their budget. So they're waiting. And while my sister will sometimes complain about how long it's taking, she understands why it is and I guess that gets her through.
Me personally, it'd drive me nuts. I'd want to get married as soon as the engagement was out of the way... But every person and couple is different.
