I love when the parents start putting on the pressure!

When my Fiance finally proposed his parents said “It’s about time”  and I wanted to say to them why the heck didnt you say something to him so it wasnt only me nagging at him.

 

Its gotta be coming soon!

My mil started bugging my hubby after we were dating for 3 months. She had the ring, a family diamond, and kept asking if he wanted it yet. He didn’t until 11 months.

But he has the ring so that’s a good sign, be patient, it all goes by so fast!

@CapeBoundBride: Ugh! Been there! In fact, J’s mom actually yelled at him, saying: “Well then marry the damn girl!” That was a year ago…

But honestly… Consider yourself lucky! You KNOW he has the ring. It’s just a matter of time now. Some of us girls have no clue if our men have even considered ring shopping!

Hahaha!  I love it.  Not long ago, my Boyfriend or Best Friend was telling his mom all about the places we want to travel and live one day, and she thought it sounded great.  Later that day, she sent him a text: “You know, if you’ve got all these big plans, it’s really time that you start thinking about getting engaged.”  I <3 his mom.  What she didn’t know was that he was already shopping for rings and had already asked my dad’s permission at that point!  I don’t know if he’s actually talked to her about it yet, but I like that she’s pushing for it, too!

Yeah – that won’t help me.  He’d be more likely to balk even more should his parents say anything… somehow they seem to push the wrong button when they try to make a point, and get the opposite result of what they were hoping.  I’m hoping a little that while we’re down for Thanksgiving that they somehow hit the nail on the head, like, maybe his grandmother would offer HIM her rings (she’s so sweet, and keeps telling ME about it, but I doubt anyone has told him) but am just trying my best not to get my hopes up.

It’s great that your BF’s mother is trying to get trhough to him – hope it helps πŸ™‚

What I think really got to my Fiance was when my dad said something about it. He said it jokingly at a party, but it really got to my Fiance. I think it may have sped up the engagement process a little, lol.

Boyfriend or Best Friend parent’s have also asked him why he hasn’t asked me to marry him yet. A couple weeks ago, his mom even asked him if he wanted her to ask me for him. (He is originally from another country so I’m not sure if that’s something that s common over there). I think parents pressuring can be the nudge a guy needs to finally do it but it can also backfire if they push too much. Hopefully yoru bf takes his mom’s hint Wink

@osprey: Hah yeah same, except it was HIS dad. We were all out to dinner and Boyfriend or Best Friend pulls out his wallet when the check came… his dad goes, “Oh no. Put your money away. You just save that for Jared.” LOL!! As in, the jeweler.. I was dying. It was awesome. Gotta love parental hints!! πŸ™‚

@CapeBoundBride:

Oh my…it sounds like we are dating twins!  My Boyfriend or Best Friend is doing the EXACT SAME THING!  We bought the ring together, but he wants it to be a surprise.  He is waiting for an event or something.  Yup, I want to smack my guy sometimes, too! πŸ˜‰

@CapeBoundBride:

By the way, how long have you been dating your BF?  How long has he had the ring?

I’m just wondering, ok? But when you (and now his mom) push so hard, doesn’t it take the romance out of it all?

My BF’s mom told Boyfriend or Best Friend the other weekend that she would help him pay for an e-ring when the time came. So sweet, but geez woman! We were at an apple orchard, so it was an odd place to have that talk. But I adore her and she adores me and I am happy she wants her son and I to be together. πŸ˜€
