- Wedding: July 2015
My boyfriend and I are engaged (we’ve dated for 3 years) but we haven’t told anyone except our parents and siblings because we are waiting for my ring to announce it to everyone else. Now here comes the real problem, we are 20 and both in school and plan on waiting until after we graduate to have the wedding. I know people, especially my maternal grandparents will not understand this long engagement or even an engagement at my age. My step-grandfather will be the worst, I can just hear him giving his loud and rude opinions! How do I politely tell him and others to back off and just let us be happy with the decision we came to after very long and difficult discussions.
