I could tell they had been bursting to ask for ages, so they did today. They said “so when is it happening” and I said “ask him!” he he.
I explained we both know it’s happening at some point but as to when we don’t know yet. I’m waiting on him, lol.
My parents got engaged after 2 weeks (yes two weeks) and celebrated their 26th anniversary this year. They were engaged for 18 months, but I’m nearing that mark soon and they are understandably wondering. The admitted they thought it would happen when SO and I went for dinner on our 1 year anniversary. I shed a little light that we have both outrightly discussed the pages we are on and that we are on the same page, but I explained it’s a big deal to SO that he proposes (and plans it).
It brought my parents back to their wedding day, and how there was threats from one MIL that they would not attend if SIL brought such and such a person as a guest etc. Mum promised that come my time, she would have no say in the guests, and that we’d do it our way 😀 Good to know.
They are waiting as much as me, lol.
One another note, I’m on cloud 9 as I got offered a great job todayfor a better company, for more pay, which means I can contribute more financially when it comes to saving for the wedding (once he proposes). Yay. Just waiting on the offer in writing to arrive in the mail, then I can hand in my notice at my current place (which is causing me so much stress it’s not worth the money).
Ah, just needed to get that all out 😀

@emmrr3: My SO’s family has been asking him for a year when the proposal was coming. Only in the last 6 months has he started to say “soon enough”. I kinda love it when the family asks because then you know its open to discussion for a second and not because you’re badgering him! (haha) Even my boss at work asked him straight out! He brought me my lunch I forgot on the kitchen counter and when he walked in my boss said “So when are we getting that ring!?” and he just laughed and shook his head.
I just had an interview today for a better place with better pay, so I hope I am as successful as you soon! 🙂 Congrats on the new job!! It always helps to relieve a little stress in general if you make more money, plus the prospect of getting engaged is a little more fun if you can contribute something.

@emmrr3: That’s always my response too… ask him!
Congrats on the new job!!
@MissRuthie: I also love when they ask him in front of me! I always watch him to see his reaction.
Good luck to you and your interview!

@emmrr3: Congratulations on the new job! I hope you get that offer letter soon!
I know exactly what you mean about talking to your folks. My mom burst out in the car one afternoon and asked me what the deal was. I told her to chill out – it’s hard enough on me to wait, I don’t need the additional pressure! Neither does my SO! But it’s sweet that your parents care so much. (:
