Aww, I’m sorry. That would be really tough for me too. I’m also in my early twenties and we’ve been talking about marriage since early in our relationship. I understand your fiance’s worries, though: It’s not like he wants to delay the engagement FOREVER, just for the time being, but I would still try talking to him about it. Even though he’s the one who pops the question, I genuinely believe that when to get engaged should be a team decision, so maybe try and set a timeline: something specific when everything has calmed down, like “within six months”, then say you want to use that time to really work on and strengthen your relationship (and then say once you’re engaged, you want to do that too: maybe consider pre-marital counseling or something of the sort). Not something pressuring, but letting him know it is what you want and that you feel the divorce and family things are non-issues (and at least the second problem seems to be going away, anyway!).


But to make a long story even longer (;)), no I don’t think you’re being unneccessarily impatient!
