Focus more on the relationship between you and your SO. It sounds like everything is going well and leading towards a proposal. That’s wonderful news! Focus on the positives of your relationship, not on someone else’s, it’ll drive you crazy.

My FI and i moved in together, got a dog together and engaged before his brother and his GF who have been together longer and are older. I can feel how upset it has made her and she is very obviously hinting to him repeatedly that she wants to get married. Its awkward because i dont think he really wants to marry her, but isn’t sure what else to do now. 

So i would say keep your feelings in check.  It doesnt matter how quick you get engaged or how much you can afford.  The important thing is that you are HAPPY together and you know being with one another is the most important thing. 

Lots of people get engaged for the wrong reason and it never works out. So be happy that you wont be doing that.

@readynwaiting58:  Your SO sounds like a great guy!  If I were in your shoes I would feel the same way.  There’s nothing wrong with being jealous as long as you don’t let it consume you (and it sounds like you’re handling it great).  I don’t really have any advice, but I do have  *hug* and moral support for you!

@readynwaiting58:  They have been together 4.5 years and lived together 1.5 year. We have been together 3.5 years and lived together 2.5 years.

 If they do get married i dont know how happy i’ll be.  He has admitted to me before he was thinking of ending it. My FI doesnt even know her at all after all this time.  So i dont know what is up with FBIL since clearly marriage has terrified him.  I dunno. 

But thats not my problem. And his brother seems happy for us so thats all that matters.
