I apologize for this being late, it always slips my mind. Any who, here’s the “Dear Char” for this week. It’s all about “love.” Since I recently got engaged, I’ve been getting a ton of question(s) about my relationship and all that. I hope this is helpful to some of you and keep the questions coming. -You can post it here, my YouTube, Twitter, FaceBook, Tumblr.. anywhere. xoxo
I’m 22 years old and Tom is 23. (Obvi) We’re only a year apart :)
» Where did you and Tom meet?
We met in High School.
» How long have you guys been together before he proposed?
He proposed on our 76th monthsary (January 26, 2013), so a little over 6 years.
» Do you guys live together?
Yes, we moved in together Fall of 2009 :) ♥
» Since you’re Filipino, how does your parents feel about you both living together before marriage?
Well since Tom and I have been together for a few years beforehand, it wasn’t such a big deal and my parents really like him. They actually loved the idea because then someone was there to take care of me.
» Have you started planning yet? When’s the big day?
Kind of… I’ve already looked at venues, ideas for decor/theme, looked at dresses, did a draft of my guest list… just the basics. But nothing is finalized (YET) because our big day won’t be until next year (2014).
» Do you think you are too young?
To get married? Nope. I’ve actually always wanted to get married when I’m 23, it just seems like the right age. Plus we’ve been together for over 6 years and have been living together for almost 4 years. Plus we are both graduating from college this Spring so I think it’s about time… Though I want at least a year long engagement before totally tying the knot. :)
