I’ve never been married before, but I was engaged. My bf and I are looking to get engaged soon and I was wondering how other people brought up the subject with their SO’s parents? Bf and I have been dating for several years, but we’re still young and this subject would never naturally come up in conversation.
Should I tell them? My only fear in not telling them is that perhaps they might hear it elsewhere from someone on my side of the family.

@Pearl….I don’t see anything wrong with not telling that. Some people go through multiple engagements. Hey..sometimes you have to kiss a lot of frogs to find your prince. I don’t think an engagement is on the same level as a marriage. I wouldn’t tell.

His family knows… all of them I’m sure. He told them before we started dating. It’s a really small town and his family and my exes kind of know eachother. His mom was most concerned that since I had just come out of a bad marriage that I wouldn’t want to get married anytime soon! We’ve been together over a year now and we are ‘pre-engaged’ lol.
Most people know about my divorce because they either know me, my bf, or my ex. However unless it comes up I dont offer the info. I just dont want to get in to a discussion about it.
