    Yup. He said he wanted to give it to me for Christmas but the company he ordered from was closed for four days and weren't able to ship it until this Wednesday, so he made a lot of calls and knocked on many doors to get it here today, Friday.

    Em_Catz, I'm thrilled for you both. May this be a story you tell together, laughing with each other and finishing each other's sentences just enough.

    And may your household never run short of cheese.

    I am sitting here LMAO thinking of the tempest in a tea cup that you were having, see you lost faith in your guy and now you have gained so much confidence in him.
    I read all the way through the posts and was cheering for your guy saying to myself I know he will come out of this shining, Just guys intuition!

    Congratulations to your guy.
    He asked your dad √
    He ordered it √
    He got a substitute gift, √

    Aw shucks you guys. This storm definately has renewed my faith in a truly wonderful man. I'm so glad for the encouragement to COMMUNICATE with him and to be PATIENT. Unfortunately I don't feel comfortable posting my ring b/c I it's an unusual design which would make me easily identifiable incase any oof my coworkers are on a to z. But it was worth the wait. I'm glad it was a happy ending too. God is good. You guys rock

    Thank you and I pray that we receive it too! All married couples have been telling me THIS is the easy part and once we're officially together, then all the REAL work starts.

    If you have any advice, please feel free to shoot some my way via the forum or pm :)

    We don't have a perfect relationship (sometimes we fight like siblings!:haha:), but I have to say that I don't quite understand the "hard work" seemingly everyone talks about.

    Also, nothing changed after marriage. That is something else I hear often, but I'm not sure if that's true because so many people disagree with that. I mean, we've grown as human beings and changed in that way, but there wasn't some switch that changed after marriage.

    :yeahthat: I've been married to my hubs for 10 years, been together for 13. It never really has been the hard work that I've heard other couples talk about. We are best friends and I tell him everything. We have a very easy relationship. I hope that you and your fiance have a similar one. It sounds like you guys are on the right track.

    That's awesome. My elderly aunt told me to never marry someone that I'm not friends with because after all the passion and newness dies down, if you don't have a strong, deep friendship, you can't make it through the hard times.

    I was married in 1986 and the "big weddings" were just starting to be fashionable. We were married at my church with a reception in the Fellowship Hall. I made all of the bridesmaids dresses. Nobody went into tremendous debt and we lived happily ever after.

    Curmudgeon advice on weddings:

    Remember the marriage will be more important than the wedding.

    Hey Em, CONGRATS to you! :) How long have you been dating him? I saw your thread earlier when I was out of town, but never got to post yet. I was going to say that maybe he wanted to wait to propose on New Year's Day, but I guess not!

    :hugs: (in a daughterly way of course:p) Thanks Dave! We're planning a simple affair. Nothing fancy, just a modest church and a reception of ONLY our closest friends and family.

    Thank you! I can honestly say he is my best friend and he accepts me for me. I'm a good person, but by no means perfect. I have my hang ups, I can be immature and obnoxious at times I'm sure. But he takes it in stride and has the attitude that, "I might not like something you did, but I like and love YOU." Plus, when we don't agree, he's reasonable and listens to me. :wub:

    Wait stop the presses, this should be embroidered on a pillow or something a man that is reasonable and listens! You had better not lose him :lol: :toofunny: :lol: :toofunny:

    I am sorry I just had to have a laugh, I just had dinner with my son his current wife and his ex-wife, (oh and the grandkids) and we and they all got along!!!!!!!!!!
