ok ... first to give some background. BF and I have been together for 4 years and are current college students. We have known for a long time we want to get married but don''t have enough money and want to wait until we graduate which will be May 2011. I will graduate with my MBA and boyfriend with his BBA. We talked about getting married the summer of 2011 shortly after graduation. Well, recently I decided I wanted to continue my eduation and get my PHD, however, no programs are offered in the city we live, closest is 300 miles away and most programs I am interested in are very far away. I have discussed this with BF already and he said he will support me in anything and only wants me to be happy and will move with me and find a job wherever we need to go. I feel though that his family might be upset with me moving him away and would probably prefer for us to wait. Also, BF doesn''t necessarily want to move away from our families and where we grew up but insists on doing anything and everything to make me happy. I know it might be easy for some people to say wait, but you LIW can hopefully understand how ready I am to be married now and how hard it is to wait even 2 more years. If we marry in 2011, we will have been together 6 years, if we wait until after my PHD, it will be 10-11 years. I don''t know if I could move that far away from my sweety. Do you think we should bite the bullet and get married when we want to? How should I handle this situation?
