    Well I finally got around to it!

    Me and the GF have known each other now for about 7 years and so while we were in Vegas this month I booked a restaurant and asked the big question. :bounce1:

    (made that sound simple, it was actually 10months of hell, hiding bank statements while saving up, redirected post, and putting deposits on TWO rings before picking the one I liked most lol!)

    So I thought I'd share it with Clio197/200.net!

    I'm over the moon, but Lois is planning the wedding for 2013 already and I need to start saving!

    On a plus note it looks like we'll keep the Clio for a while now rather than swapping it, so I'm thinking of treating the old girl to a new spoiler and touching up some of the cosmetics (the car not the Fiancé!)

    Might be a bit ambition for the wedding but I'm game for that on the stag lol. What's French for "take it off!" ?

    Not in the slightest, but thanks for pointing that out lol

    That's dedication!

    I think if we used the Clio for anything I'd be scared it'd break down! (not that that ever happens :001_rolleyes:smile:

    Graeme, I'm ****ed mate I really am lol!

    We bought the Clio together!

    I bought my first place 2.5 years ago now and she moved straight in haha. Once she's finished Uni were looking to get a bigger place between the two of us and rent out the flat (mortgage permitting).

    A lad I work with bought a place with his GF when I bought mine, and they've just split, leaving him with a place on his own and all the bills to cough up for, nightmare!

    Me and my missus got engaged last year after being together for 6 years. We're still going strong, but haven't planned the wedding yet. We're aiming to save as much as we can as of next year, get a house and then get married.

    Nice one Arran,

    I wasn't sure how long we'd wait to get married. But Lois wants to do things the old fashioned way and get married before we go having any kids etc. But this way we can (this sounds horrible, but done for the best reasons) make the day about us, and plan a proper honeymoon etc without having to try and cater for kids or leave them behind or leave them with In-laws if/when we were to go away. It also means our bills are still cheap at the moment making saving up a more realistic option.

    Now all we have to do is work it around, a mortgage, saving up for another deposit, and increasing student debt.... Ah the realities of life lol!

    Now where did I put my lottery ticket?
