I've been engaged for over a year but joined recently and have enjoyed reading your planning threads so thought I'd start my own. I'm a terrible rambler so I'll try not to go on too much!
How we met
OH and I met in 2010 when we moved into the same house share - me having just left a 7 year relationship, him having moved into the area for a 1 year work placement as part of his degree (he was a mature student, having qualified in accountancy then deciding in his 20s that computer science was his real love). We were friends at first then one night a few months later got very drunk on a night out and ended up kissing, and it went from there! The next year he went back to uni an hour away for a year and I was working so we were a bit long distance, then when he graduated we rented our first flat together.
We bobbed along happily until 2014 when we decided to start trying for a baby, and in late 2015 our son was born.
OH knew from early on that I wanted to get married and have children as that was the reason I left my previous relationship - ex was adamant he didn't want either. This was cemented when our son came along as I really dislike not having the same surname as my little boy. OH is so laid back he is almost horizontal and while not opposed to marriage, isn't particularly bothered either way so I waited a while for him to pop the question!
