I don’t know what kind of issues your Fiance has with his family, but that sounds awfully unhealthy. I especially don’t get what’s so wrong with “blurting it out to the whole family”… So what if his brother can’t keep a secret? You two are ENGAGED, shouldn’t your Fiance be happy? Seems like he is more concerned with what his family might think or do than you or your feelings. Immature in my opinion. Definitely have a talk with the guy.

Don’t feel bad at all. One year is a good timetable. You did the right thing asking for what you want and standing up for yourself. I’m so sorry you have to deal with this. I can’t tell you what to do but I almost married the wrong guy. I felt a little embarrassed to change my mind and felt weird to be single after investing so much time but I am so glad I called things off. I should have called things off sooner. Your bf should be excited and proud to be your fiancé. If he isn’t someone else will. You can’t waste your years being strung along by a guy who needs two years to marry you. In two years he might need more time and more time. Then what? Don’t give up on finding the man who really deserves you.

Hi Ladies! First of all, thank you for all of your amazing comments, I can’t tell you how helpful all of them were during a confusing and frustrating time!!
I told him there was no point in the ring and/or the engagement if I am being asked to lie about it and take the ring on and off. He completely agreed (finally). We went to dinner with his family 3 nights ago and he told everyone in his family, along with changing his Facebook status to “engaged” (I wasn’t too worried about Facebook, but nice to see that he changed it, nonetheless). This dirty little secret is officially no longer a secret lol! Hopefully it will be smooth sailing from now on, next step is a firm timeline on the wedding!
Thank you all so much again!
