Hi Mom, Dad. Guess what? We’re getting married!
Yes.. Im expecting a long engagement
Do they know him well, and know how much you love each other? How old are you?
I dated my Husband for 5 solid months before we got engaged. My parent’s didn’t blink and eye because they knew we worked well together and were two peas in a pod. 😉
Our engagement was 8 months long.
You tell them, I had a short courtship. I just told my parents we were getting married. By the time the wedding comes around we will be together for a year and a half. That helps people in being more supportive.
Just say it….the fact that you are having a long engagement should help.Congratulations!
Dad, I met a man in Rome. And he’s wonderful and brilliant, and we’re getting married.
In all seriousness, you’re an adult. Just do it. Unless you are still living under their roof and are under 20, you can make your own decisions. Just go in knowing that they probably wont be supportive.
I would just tell them. If you’re not adult enough to tell them you are getting married then you’re not adult enough to get married.
I moved in with my FI after 3.5 months and we had a wedding date by 10 months…and I just told my parents. Pretty simple.
Have they met him yet? 🙂
You must be very young otherwise you wouldn’t be worried about it. I was engaged 3 months after H and I met and we were married 8 months later. My parents were thrilled because they know and trust that I wouldn’t make a hasty decision – I was absolutely sure about what I was doing.
I met my DH in Feb 2011, he proposed in late April 2011 (2.5 months later) and we got married in November 2012 (planned on August 2013 but had a semi-elopement), I literally just told my parents, so MrN & I are engaged, they were thrilled, they saw how in synch we were.
The topic ‘how do I tell my parents that im engaged.to my bf that I been dating for 3 month’ is closed to new replies.
