Hi- I'm 31 years old and have been in a relationship for almost 2 years with the man I hope to someday call my husband. We seemed to be on a natural path toward marriage, but he recently received the news he will be deployed to Afghanistan in January. Now it seems there's pressure to decide whether to get married before he leaves or not. I know when he gets back he'll need time to adjust back to "civilian life" and a wedding may not be at the top of his list of things to do. I feel ready and don't want to pressure him, but 2 years seems like an eternity to wait. Any advice from those of you who have been in the same boat??
