(I was gonna include this in the answer to the “what’s changed” asked but it’s a little bit of a bummer, still, good expo: So far the bad thing about taking their relationship one day at a time in regards to growth is that without expectations they’re not really planning either.
Their eagerness to get married kinda blinds them to what they’re really gonna have to do to make that happen. Not just getting to California, but if they can’t travel pretty soon after, it would sort of break their hearts.
And after that, how do they live? Surely she won’t come stay with him in his tiny dressing room he uses as a bedroom. The most obvious answer is for Bendy to come to the Grzeskiewicz home since it’s big and kind of a central meeting place anyway, but would he really want to share India with Godwin like that? And how would he get to the theater where he actually works every day?
They’re already getting a taste of this in that they don’t actually have many opportunities to stay overnight with each other, lest India have to bike Bendy all the way to the theater district every morning, which works but is a pretty major pain. Bendy never thought he’d be so jealous simply knowing Bee and Boris just sleep together every night.
It comes down almost entirely to money, but also convenience too and the difficulty of change. Would India want to leave Godwin alone if they had the chance to find some place for themselves? And would Bendy want to leave the convenience of living where Boris and their job is? It’s not like it’s an impossible choice, after all Henry is moving back to his old home when Linda gets back. They’ll all congregate the way they always do anyway during the day, but change is still hard. Where’s the middle ground?
I think they’ve sort of jumped ahead because they know that once they are married, they’ll face some difficulties; but they forgot that the actual startup of it isn’t gonna be much easier for them than any other young couple. Pretty soon they’re gonna have to come down from the excitement of the “we’re gonna get married” hype and realize that this isn’t going to be a flawless transition. -HG)
