So I just found out that my brother has asked his girlfriends father for her hand! Waiting is starting to feel like one big joke that everyone’s in on but me!
My brother and his girlfriend are 20 and 18 respectively. And they’ve been together 2 months! My brother still hasn’t received an answer from her Dad. Oh, and yeah, I’ve never even met her! The family will support him whatever decision he makes but as you can imagine everyone’s a bit skeptical. My brother tends to fall in love quite hard.
(I’ve tried putting spaces between paragraphs in this but WB isn’t having it)

You should be happy for them… blah blah blah and all that crap people will say. I would be pissed off too. EVEN though there is nothing to say it is wrong that they are doing it, they deserve to be happy blah blah blah, Ugh. I feel your pain!

@ladyartichoke: I seems soon for me too BUT my SO’s sister reacted rather rudely and hurt him when she found out he planned on proposing (acted like he was insane for wanting to propose after a year) so maybe let someone else voice their distaste for you? or say it nicely?

Oh… yikes. I can’t imagine this is going to end well, and I’d definitely be angry if I was in your situation.
Hopefully, with the whole family skeptical, you can find a relative to talk privately about your feelings with.

Oh dear. It’s hard but have to just think about how you’re in a much better place/relationship.

Well that sucks but oh well. Can’t wait to hear that you are engaged 😉

Well if this girl has any brains, she’ll turn him down!! Who wouldn’t run from that?? No offense to your brother…but seriously.

@subtlebee: I won’t be saying anything, he’s my brother and I will always support his decisions.
@mepayne: strangely it’s actually likely to bring me and my other brother together, something we can both have an opinion on.
@MaiS2B: Me too!
@kendra389: I think she is just as loved up as he is. It would be sweet if it wasn’t so serious.
