Just relax darling!! It’ll be ok =)

I was convinced my Mom and his Mom would HATE the idea (our was kind of a world wind also) but they are STUPIDLY EXCITED.

So just relax. It’ll be okay. =)

@PromiseRooster:  Eeek, I can see how this would be nerve-wracking. On the bright side, if they don’t agree w. the engagement then at least you’ll be in another country for a year lol.

I would try to do some nice gestures to get to know them better, though.

Ultimately it’s great if you have a good relationship w. the inlaws, but it’s about you as a couple and if they don’t like it well then too bad.

I second everything @throughthebarricades said! And just so you can hear about the possible negative side: when FI told his parents that he wanted to propose to me, they suggested that we wait a little longer. UM, we’ve been together for 7 years. My FI’s parents are unhappy in their marriage, and I think they were kind of projecting…but the good news is, a year (and a lot of drama) later, they’re on board and excited about the wedding!

Let us know how it goes! Either way, it will turn out great in the end because you get to marry this awesome dude!
