- Wedding: November 2012
I get along great with FI’s family – We hang out together fairly often and vacation together at least once a year.
When we got engaged last month, FI’s nephew (who is only 5 years younger than me), made some comment about how I was now The Boss and Fiance was ‘done’ now. The first time we saw the nephew after getting engaged, he made some comment like “Oh, here comes B and The Boss!”. Everyone laughed, there were big hugs all around as congratulations and we moved on with the evening.
I’ve now realized that my title as The Boss has kinda stuck with FI’s family. I know it’s just one of those things that families do, but could we not have come up with a more flattering nickname? I am so not that girl that doesn’t let her man do anything just because he’s engaged/married.
