I don’t mean to sound dense, but did he literally fall asleep? Or did he metaphorically fall asleep and miss the opportunity to meet your dad? I told FI there’s a reason I don’t like to sleep! At any rate, congratulations! Life always works out :).

peacock0320:  The day my husband and I were supposed to get engaged…. we got super drunk and passed out by 6 pm (DH with his shoes on)! We ended up going to dinner super late and getting engaged around midnight. Everyone was asleep that we wanted to tell! LOL. Things just happen sometimes… it’s a funny story to tell now.

peacock0320:  I don’t know how busy your family’s social calendar is, but it shouldn’t be that hard to find a date for your FI to talk to your parents in the next couple of months, should it? Maybe with the holidays coming up it would be, idk.

Overall nothing is lost…you’re still engaged (though not wearing the ring yet) and you’ll be married. I believe this will be a funny story you can tell your grandkids. My grandma has a few she has told about my grandpa and I find them sweet and hilarious, especially when he tries to complain. 😉

peacock0320:  Oh I didn’t realize they were fussy. It seems they live in your area, so can y’all just get dinner on a weeknight and your FI can pull your dad aside to talk to him after?

i didn’t care if my husband got my parents’ blessing before we got engaged- everyone knew we were going to get married and i didn’t really see the point- but my parents (mostly my mom i think) wanted him to, so i told him he should.

a couple months after he bought my rings, i asked him (just out of curiosity) if he had talked to my parents yet and he said no. not too long after that he proposed and of course i said yes. and then i asked him if he had lied when i asked him if he had talked to my parents. he hadn’t lied and he also never got their blessing. apparently, he thought i was joking about it. by this time it was midnight and i wasn’t going to wake my parents up so he could talk to them, so the next day we just talked to them together.

my mom’s cousin was visiting at the time and i didn’t want to do it with her around. i felt like that moment should be between us and my parents, plus my husband was nervous enough as it was (and it was making me nervous!). my dad and my brother were outside working on my brother’s car. so i had to get my dad inside and get rid of my cousin. i wanted to get rid of my brother too, but i only had a small window of time to work with. so yeah, that’s how we got their blessing and announced our engagement– my dad all sweaty, with motor oil all over his hands and with my brother hanging around watching us. not exactly the way i pictured it would happen, but it was kinda funny, lol.

so yeah, you’ll have a good story to share, haha

peacock0320:  Well if your FI already has a plan in motion, it sounds like there’s not going to be too much longer to wait, hopefully! 🙂 That’s so sweet that he is making sure to meet with your family this week.

peacock0320:  Did he get to ask them yet? I sure hope he did!

Btw–I was going to post this in the other thread on the ring board, but then I thought we were derailing that OP’s thread too much–how are you liking your canary moissy? I love the yellow color; it’s so vivid!
