I'm new to planning a wedding and frankly, I don't have to do a whole lot. But my fiancee does and I know that she has been getting quite stressed out lately because of family issues and everything else that is going on. Sometimes I think it may be easier to simply elope but then we would have to put up with people being upset at us the rest of our lives - plus, we both want to have a wedding ceremony.
I leave February 14th for Virginia and will be there until the wedding in September - I can't wait until this whole thing is behind us and we can have our wedding and honeymoon and begin our life together as a family. My family was so messed up that I can't wait to have the chance to begin a family on the right foot and to have a Christian home built on God and scripture.
There will be more updates as the next six months go along and I suspect that the frustration level will only get worse but with the help of God, we will make it through this and prayerfully, our two families will draw closer to God through this entire experience.
