Saying "I Do". Or Not.

Paulie and I have been boyfriend-girlfriend for two years when I got pregnant with Svet. Now, we are almost three years into the relationship and we still do not talk about getting married. Now don't get me wrong. This is actually not a bad thing for us. When we first told my mom that I was pregnant, it was even she who advised to give it some time before we finally decide to settle down. Both Paulie and I saw the practicality of that. For one, one would need money if one wants a decent wedding. It's something that would not really fit into our present budget right now, so there. Likewise, we still have yet to know each other. Living in the same roof enables you to do that, you know. We see parts of each other that we didn't dare show when we are still on the early stages of our relationship. Now I know he's addicted to playing video games and he discovered that i tend to get really cranky when i am dead-out tired. It's a good thing, not being married. At least for us. The relationship is as open as it can get and we like the arrangement. When and if we finally decide to tie the knot, it will be the time when we have already resolved to be patient with each others not-the-best-behavior. And to stay together no matter what, not only for the baby but also for each other. :)
