@conservkwm:  I’d say wait. I wouldn’t have wanted to get engaged right before/after a funeral. Of course, you know your GF better than I do, so maybe it wouldn’t bother her, but you’ll want to be sure. My fiance and I used to be long distance (for 4 years) and only see each other once every month or two, so I understand not wanting to wait. However, you know you are going to see her again in a few weeks, so it’s not like you’re going to have to wait a year. I just wouldn’t want to risk her (or her family) finding it innapproriate.

I’d wait. Neither she nor her family are probably in much of a mood to celebrate. You don’t want your engagement to be dampered with any bad feelings whatsoever, especially grief.

I’d wait. I am sure you will have more time together in the not too distant future.

@conservkwm:  I’d wait. Maybe you can plan a long weekend in a month or so and do it then. Right now the family will be grieving the loss of a loved one and with such a happy time like an engagement, I feel there would be alot of mixed and emotional feelings. Its very possible with all the emotion of the family, they may find it very inappropriate and be extremely unhappy with your timing.
