- Wedding: June 2014
I am a frequent poster to the waiting board but this is a first for the family board.
My SO and I have been together for over a year and a half and are planning on getting engaged before the end of 2012. He is giving me NO information other than we have looked at rings, he will ask my dad but I dont know when, and he has a plan in place.
He just asked me when our families should meet.. the problem is that they are VERY different and will get along but have little in common. I am from a close knit relaxed family and he is from a very conservative dutch family. I get along with his parents great and he gets along with mine but we are concerned about one thing… my SO and I have created a few little white lies to his parents about little things such as a few weeks ago when my family invited us to the cottage and him and I camped on the way there for one night.. we had to tell his parents that we went straight there because they would not approve of us sharing a tent alone.It sounds SOOO childish and it really is very frustrating and sneaky but we dont have a choice.
Although my parents know we do this now and again, we are worried about things like that coming up in casual conversation. My SO wants them to meet soon, and I think we should wait until we are engaged so there is more to talk about eg. wedding engagement, plans, family etc instead of vacations and small talk. But I have NO IDEA WHEN THIS WILL BE!
What do you bees think? Should we wait? It is so hard to talk about because he cant give me anymore timing hints…
