2 mos, 2 weeks, 4 days until the wedding...
T and I have been talking about having children pretty much since soon after we started dating. We both come from strong family backgrounds and feel that family is an important part of our lives. Since we soon realized after meeting (I when I first set eyes on him) that we would be together forever, we have had many discussions about how we would raise our children, what they will look like, what their names will be, etc.
Fast forward to now, we're soon approaching our June 16 wedding date. Around December, T and I were laying in bed one night talking about our future and the wedding. We always had decided that we'd wait until we moved to be closer to my family to TTC and that wasn't going to be until a few years away. Anyways, we were laying there and talking and T blurted out that he would move before the wedding so that we can start trying to build a family soon after we got married. I was shocked and stunned. This move is big for him because he has never lived away from his family (whom we currently live by), but because he loves me so much, he was willing to move closer to my mom and family to make the pregnancy phase a little easier. So, then we got into the full swing of things, and called my parents to tell them we would be moving back to my hometown (three and a half hours away) soon before the wedding. They were ecstatic! My mom's dream is to have her grandkids near her. T moved down to live with my parents about a month ago so that he can get a good start on his job hunting.
It's hard being apart, but since we both know it's in the best interest of us and "our" family, it's been making the transition easier. So, that's the story for now. The goal is for T to have a great job and me to possibly have a great teaching job before the wedding and therefore, be able to start concieving soon after the wedding. Keep your fingers crossed!!
