I’ve been dreading this for a while now. Now that we’ve booked the place, it’s been about a month or so since then. And goodness, I need to tell him soon.
I don’t know why it’s so hard to tell him, probably because I know that he’ll flip out, and him being happy with everything means so much to me.
Have any of you been in the same situation before? How should I go about telling him? I am really not a confrontational person, so this is really stressing me out.
Thank you! I really appreciate Weddingbee, so that I could ask questions I wouldn’t normally get answered. =]

Why is he going to flip out?

I knew one of my relatives was going to flip out (and it did happen), but I did it quick, like a band-aid. Having Darling Husband there to comfort me afterward helped, too. And said relative did come around eventually–it just took some time. Good luck!

Yeah, am I missing something? Why would he flip out because you’re getting married?

I am not understanding either. Is there a related post? Good luck regardless!

Oh! I’m 21 and he thinks that I should be getting married after I get my career started, but that won’t happen until I graduate college with a Masters in five years. He’s always been very involved in my life, and my brothers, like a second father. Anyway, I was just wondering if anyone went through the same thing, with a close family member being upset.

@Mrs.Sunflower: If he happens to become extremely upset, just remind him that this doesn’t mean you’re going to give up school and your future career. Give him reasons to believe you and explain why finishing school is important to you along with having someone by your side. We all know that while love is great, it definitely doesn’t pay the bills!
