So I’m having a horrible day, had to put my dog down and my SO is super compassionate about loosing our “daughter” but I’m concerned he has decided to push back the engagement in light of recent events. I was expecting a dec1st proposal, but I’m worried he’s thinking in we need a break from the wedding planning stress and deal with the loss. Im the kind of girl who grieves by keeping too busy to be sucked into depression over death. How to I tell him to stick to his plan, whatever that may be?

Sometimes life gets in the way of the best laid plans. If your boyfriend is upset, I don’t think bringing up engagement would be a good idea right now.

I’m so sorry to hear about your furbaby. It’s always hard to lose a family member. In my own opinion, I think that if he’s more worried about you still being upset than he is himself than I would tell him to continue on with his plans. December is still a little more than a month away so maybe that will be enough time to get over the intial shock and grieving period. Best of luck and I hope you feel better.

Everyone deals with grief in their own way and you need to respect his right to do that.

Whatever you do, do NOT connect the death of your dog to pushing back your proposal if you talk to him at all.
I’m just trying to think of things from the point of view of your boyfriend, but his beloved dog died literally hours ago and it only made you think about the posibility of a delayed proposal? Be there for him and do not bring up the proposal. I can’t imagine losing one of my dogs. The very thought of my partner wanting me to focus on a proposal and not on the life of my beautiful dog is sickening. Sorry, but it is.
