    What are you waiting for before getting married?

    House ready? Sufficient finances? Pay increase?

    I think for me i'm waiting for our finances to be more secure before getting married.. have to wait about 1-2 more years before can have enough money for the wedding. Meanwhile he has already proposed so I have started to do research, any brides to be out there waiting for any of the above 3 before tying the knot?

    House is in my mind. But i would say, it is not my top top priority. Because i know i dont marry that man becos of a house. After married, we are already broke enough. haha. think we will slowly save for a new house.

    House is one of the factor, just got our house so we are waiting for the right time to get married (: (Of cos we didnt get hitched so that we can get a flat) At the same time, save up more so that we wont have any financial difficulties in the future. We wont want to be in debt just because of the wedding!

    Also, HTB still thinks that I'm still young so he's willing to wait for me. But anyway, he already asked my parents for hand in marriage last year, so it's not much of an issue of disapproval from my side.

    But I guess finances and house is a common thing nowadays?

    Thanks rojak. 23 this year, HTB 7 yrs older. But he;s in no hurry cos he knows that Im still young. He sorta waited fro my to graduate; we kinda had a LDR for a year or so. My parents got no objections about me getting married now luh, cos i've already gotten my degree and working for the past 1plus year. But my mum thinks that Im still a big kid (which is kinda true. haha), because I still act like one sometimes. The good thing is my HTB is a big kid himself, with all his nonsense sometimes.
