Just do’t worry about it? I’m not sure what else you could do. I think it would be best if you havea  few days before Christmas to spend time with both your mom and your Fiance. Have a few meals together, get to know each other, introduce her as someone you love and are dating. When you’ve logged a few hours, tell your mom (by yourself or with your fi) that you are engaged. Tell her how happy you are, and that you’re really hoping your bother is happy too, and take it from there.


No matter what you do, if your mom is going to be upset, she’s going to be upset. If she’s going to be happy, she;s going to be happy. There’s no way to package this information to genuinely affect her feelings. If you’re worried about her being overly surprised or ganged up on, though, I think taking things slow with her is a good idea.

I would tell your mom first, like right away, and then have her meet your fiance later.
