Being engaged sounds like a great idea: You’re in a committed relationship, yet free of all the responsibilities that arrive after saying “I do.” But in today’s society, having a ring on your finger isn’t all it’s chalked up to be.
OK, I’m not saying that being engaged is overrated, but the pressure that comes along with it is. After the hype surrounding the proposal dies down, the couple will inevitably face the question: “When’s the big day?” My problem with this is…why does it matter?
If it were me, I would want to enjoy the engagement rather than rush into selecting a venue, setting a date and all the other stress that accompanies planning a wedding. So, why is it acceptable to pressure these couples into rushing that next step?
Answer: It’s not.
