After 10 years..... N proposed on Saturday. :D

We went away for the weekend with family, and he took me aside for a moment to "show me something". Next thing I know, he's one one knee, with a ring box and asking "would you...?"

OMG.

The ring is a simple gold and white gold band, with a snake forming a stylised infinity symbol (we're both Year of the Snake). No stones, so it sits nice and flat and doesn't get in the way when I do anything. It's unconventional and understated, which pretty much sums us both up.

We've already decided that we'll wait to get married until after N has finished studying and is working again, so I've got a couple of years to think about things.

What a beautiful beautiful ring! This is such great news, I am so happy for you.

I could have sworn you were married but with everyone " growing up" on ddn I lose track on who's getting married, giving birth, moving in with their significant other, graduating etc.

Please post photos of the wedding, I want to hear all about it!

Congratulations again!

Thank you all! :) I adore the ring. I had no idea he had even been looking at shinystuff, but he said he saw this one, thought of me and that was IT.

We haven't set a date yet - haven't even nailed down a year yet, but we've taken the first step, at least.

I think most people assumed we were already married because we're in our 30's, have been together over 10 years and have a little boy together. We just skipped that part of the progression of things. It's funny - he said he had been waiting years for me to ask him, but from conversations I always got the impression he wasn't interested in formaliaing the relationship, so I didn't, in case a 'no' made things weird.
