It’s not your fault some random cousin of your fiance’s is a jerk.  Let it go.

@trainergirl:  Um. He’s crazy and a bad cousin. If any of my cousins got engaged around the same time we’d be stoked to plan together. 

That said, he’s just a cousin. You can be super excited with FI’s immediate family. Go on about your business. If cousin doesn’t like hearing about your wedding, that’s his problem.

My honest opinion is I wouldn’t let it get to me, and I would certainly Not tone down your engagement or anything to do with your wedding. Just because Your FI’s cousin got engaged, doesn’t mean he owns the title engaged or anything to do with a wedding. This should be a happy time in everyones life involved, and I def think that even waiting a week was nice enough on  your parts. If your Fi’s cousin has a problem I would leave it at that, His problem and celebrate and shout to the moon in back. This is one of the most important miles stones in a couples life. I beleive that you should just turn a blind eye and be happy! And if this really is something you feel you can’t turn a blind eye to, I would let your Fiance take care of it and say look we are sorry you think we stole your thunder, but if you were so worried about this happening maybe you could have spoken with me and found out we were planning on getting engaged too. I’m sorry but Your Fi’s cousin getting mad is just silly to me.  Please don’t let this get you down about your wedding and have the time of your life planning and just being happy. I wouldn’t let one person bring me down.

I agree, let it go. Who needs extra drama?

@trainergirl:  Live your life for you and your Fiance and nobody else! So if you get pregnant the same time as them are you going to hide your baby bump or diminish your excitement just because of them?! Just go on planning your wedding. Hold your head up high and be excited!!

@trainergirl:  omg what a loser!!!!!!! he needs to get a life!!!!!!! my husband was going to propose on a certiain day, that VERY day his sister rang us to say she had gotten engaged! so obviously he didnt propose that day, but it was maybe a few weeks to a month later that he did!!!!!! it wasnt stealing her thunder, it is all about timing. and now she isnt with her fiancee nor marrying him, she has a new partner! and we’re married.

so everything works out 😉

And if you had waited two weeks, or a months, that probably wouldn’t have been long enough either.  But no, the comment absolutely was not a joke.  If it had been a joke, he would have laughed after he said it and not spent the rest of the night shooting you guys dirty looks from across the room.  Sounds like he needs to grow up and get over himself.
