@fainavach1992:  Let him propose whenever he wants.  If he wants to do it on V Day, he’ll do it.  Otherwise, he’ll pick another day and make it special by making that day your proposal date.

Yes men think that way and it’s likely he won’t do it in Feb if his family is making such a big deal out of his sister giving birth. What’s so special about V day anyway? Iit’s so overcommercialized, and you and every other person on the planet would be getting engaged that day, and if he DID do it then you’d know it was coming!

You can still plan a perfectly good wedding if he proposes in march or even april. Maybe you should discuss all this timeline stuff with him though before worrying too hard about it.

@fainavach1992:  ….I don’t see how the birth of a child and an engagement in the same month could be seen as anything but wonderful!  Joy begets joy, and you getting engaged in no way diminishes this child’s arrival, so I don’t see why someone would schedule a proposal around it.

Hasn’t he already told you he isn’t ready to propose for another six months?

My fiance and I got engaged 5 days after his sister-in-law had their first baby. We weren’t very loud about our engagement at the time to allow them to celebrate the birth with the rest of the family.

@fainavach1992:  Oh.  In your thread a week ago, you said that he had said in July he would be proposing in a year… so, about six months from now.  Sorry, I was confused.
