@kgrnbrg299: Do you know if they’ve congratulated him? Maybe they are waiting until they see you in person?

I’m not sure how you should feel.

I had called his siblings and his parents because I’m that close with them. The rest of his family, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins…no one really said anything to us the next time we saw them. I didn’t read into this though.

Have you asked him about it? I’m wondering if they are all occupied with his Grandmother being Ill??

You could always give them a call, I don’t know if they are waiting for you to call them to tell them all about it??

By the way Congrats on being engaged!!!

Well I think they may just be waiting to see you in person… Do the whole “Let me see the ring” “how exactly did he propose” thing… Maybe…

@kgrnbrg299: You and I are in the same boat, except I have been engaged over two years now, and still have never received a congratulatory anything from my fiance’s father or stepmother. His mom is a wonderful and kind-hearted person, but his dad and stepmom are quite cold. The night my fiance proposed, we texted and called them, but got no answer and no response to the news. I was very hurt for me, but even more hurt for my fiance. It still bothers me to this day, but it is what it is. I guess I should have expected the reaction (or lack there of), since all during high school they would never say a word to me when I went over my fiance’s house until I said hello first.

My fiance and I have been together six years now and engaged two. We simply don’t discuss our wedding plans with his dad or stepmom, as trying to in the past has gotten us nowhere. It’s upsetting, but ultimately, my fiance and I must do what is best for us.

I honestly think you should give it some time as you haven’t been engaged too long. Maybe they’d rather congratulate you both in person? Try not to worry in the meantime… I know, easier said than done! Either way, this is one of the happiest times in your life and should not be hindered by anyone else. Focus on you, your fiance, and the life you are both making together. Best of luck!
