- Wedding: June 2016
So …. Fiance and I got engaged on Monday. Happy day! I waited until today to tell my family since were planning a long engagement (4 years) to save money and finish school. My friends, dad, and sister were very supportive. My friends are happy to see Fiance and I take this step. My dad and Fiance are pretty close, and he’s happy because I’m happy and believes Fiance is sincere about loving and wanting to take care of me. And my sister, honestly, is just excited because I am. Great, right?! Wrong.
My mother and sister were very unsupportive. My sister just said really?! and stormed away, refusing to talk to me. My mom said “Well, it’s whatever you want” then started grilling me about Fiance.
My sister is young (17 years old), and has always had a problem with Fiance. So, her and I will have to work this stuff out. But, my mom really threw me for a loop. I understand that we’re young (21 years old), but I told her the plan. I just kinda wanted her to be happy for me.
Sorry for the rant. I know you’ve probably heard it before.
