Financial Advisor = Marriage Counselor

Yesterday the BF and I went to see his financial advisor, mainly because when I asked him questions about how he was investing he didn't have a clue and secondly because I hoped the advisor would be able to convince him that he shouldn't keep all of his savings in a chequing account but rather invest some of it, which happened.

Who would have thought that we would get pulled into a conversation about why we weren't married yet, though. He basically told my BF that if we have lived together for almost a year and have been together almost 2, we were pretty much married already. To sum up the conversation, and I quote, "Shit or get off the pot."

The interesting part was that because he was talking about our finances and wasn't just our mothers asking when there was going to be a wedding, the BF was actually listening to him. Who knows maybe this means I don't have to wait 5 years for him to get a round to asking now.

  1. I hope you don't mind, but I'm stealing (err, I mean borrowing. Yea.) this story for my blog. I wish someone would tell my boyfriend this! Cause you're right, it just doesn't sound the same way coming from me/the parents/the friends.
