We've lived together for about 12 years and just have never got around to getting married. Covid made us sit up and think about the legal side of our relationship (especially as we have been shielding) so we decided to take the plunge and just "get it done" in a quick Registry office ceremony. Something for us to look forward to we thought!
We can only have 2 witnesses though or we would have to wait a further 12 months at least.
We decided it would be nice to have 1 of each of our children - mine agreed readily and quickly decided which of them would do it. My OH's children however have really soured it for us. They wanted us to get married at a later date so all their family could be present. We told them we fully intended to have a proper family celebration when Covid allowed and that this was just the legal bit but that wasn't acceptable to them and all this has left us feeling rather deflated. We just wanted them to be happy for us!
This is our day surely and our decision but we thought that by including them we were doing the right thing! What do you think? Are we being unreasonable?
