So, SO has the ring. We have the wedding booked. Yet no engagement! It has been driving me nuts, but yesterday we had a playful chat and he explained he is going to give his family the heads up prior to proposing. I think this is respectful, however I’m a little worried. For one, we’ve only been dating a year, however we are late twenties and after previous long term relationships we know what we want. Secondly his mum went through a difficult divorce two years ago and is very bitter about marriage. He is prepared for an initial negative response, however I wish he didn’t have to go through that. He already said he would have told her his intentions from the start had she still been married.
So, we are with them at the weekend and this may be when he talks to them. Scary! Hopefully my wait will soon be over and I can purely look forward to marrying the man of my dreams!
