@MissCoffeeBean:  Ah, I just replied on my post and then realised that this is your post! Duh.

It’s great that you and your SO are on the same page again. 

It’s a hard one with the email/sister situation. I guess I’d reply just saying something as inoffensive as possible, perhaps just something like ‘we feel ready to move forwards, we want to keep our business to ourselves, we work hard for what we have’ etc? It really depends on your relationships between you and SO and his sister.

I hope it gets worked out.

@MissCoffeeBean:  Yeah, I think that’s a good idea. Don’t be drawn in on the negatives, especially if SO and sister have such a good relationship. 

So happy that you and your SO are happy again 😀

Bah, just delete that email and move on with your life.

My mom was sort of like that too, before we got engaged… “Oh, you can wait, you have all this time…” and she meant it in the best way possible.
Then when we DID get engaged she was like a little kid, so freaking excited. She expects to cry a lot at my wedding and apparently cries when she hears a good song for us to play (and then immediatley emails it to me for consideration).

Some people just don’t like things to change! But sometimes, when things do change, they’re on board anyway.

And it’s not like she can stop you!
I am sure she’ll be fine if you two decide to tie the knot.

@CakeyP:  my mom did the exact same thing….

“you have forever, there is no rush, you are so young” and then “you should use this song! I found a great cake baker, can I make your card box?”

@MissCoffeeBean:  I would ignore anything she said about waiting. Did she start with a “how are you? or how’s school going?” Answer that, say you can’t wait to see her and don’t mention a ring or engagement or anything about how she is butting her nose in places where it doesn’t belong.

@MissCoffeeBean:  if that’s all she said and she didn’t ask any questions that you should answer, I wouldn’t respond and unless she is affecting your SOs plans or opinions, don’t worry about her.
