- Wedding: June 2014
I’m kinda young (22 on Sunday!!) but my SO and I have been together 3+ years..we just graduated college and I have yet to find a job (substitute teaching right now). SO has a job but it’s currently a temporary position so its an hourly wadge and no benefits. We are also both living with our parents an hour away from each other. We are not engaged yet but it’s most likely happening this weekend on vacation.
It is very important to me that my SO ask my mom because we are super close and my dad and I don’t have the greatest relationship. I’m positive that he has asked her (no way would he propose without asking her permission first, he has always said it was important to him.) But I also want him to ask my dad since he will most likely be paying for the wedding. I know that this would be awkward but I’m sure he did it because I expressed how important it is to me.
The part I’m concerned about is I really want him to give my younger brother a heads up. My brother is 19 and is my best friend. We are extreemely close and I just feel that it is important for him to be asked as well. I’ve told SO this but I’m not sure if he ended up doing it or not.
Is is silly for me to want him to ask so many people? My mom and brother are both very supportive of our relationship and know that we are going to get married anyway but I tihnk that asking would be the respectful thing to do.
