Are they invited to the wedding?  They will find out eventually.  Just tell them.  Everybody is on their own schedule.

@wgowood: Its ridiculous for your Future Mother-In-Law to ask you to take your ring off. If it were me, I would have never done it the first time she asked. If anyone have a problem with your engagement then they will just have to get over it.

I wouldn’t take it off, that’s for sure. If Future Mother-In-Law is like this about you and your Fiance getting engaged first, what’s next? If you decide to have children and get pregnant before Future Brother-In-Law and his Girlfriend, is she going to ask to you to hide it? Same for buying a new house, or anything else they might want to do, but you get around to doing it first.

I don’t think you are wrong about any of it. Why should you and your Fiance have to hide what is going on in your life just because Future Mother-In-Law thinks it might upset someone else? Fiance and I have been together almost 10 years, and all of my sisters were married before us, to people they hadn’t dated nearly as long. It didn’t bother me in the least bit.

I would let Fiance know about the things that she has said and asked before, just as a head’s up, and go about wearing your ring like usual.

It would bother me too, but I wouldn’t take my ring off for her or the gf. Its an issue that they need to deal with, if the gf would in fact actually be disturbed by it. Anyway, you’re going to be a part of that family and hopefully they will accept it. Seems like it shouldn’t really be their decision who your Fiance loves.

I think asking you to take off your ring was a very hurtful thing for her to do. You were very nice to comply with her wishes the first time but this can’t go on much longer. Besides seeing the progress in your relationship might spur the brother to move his relationship to the next level. Leave your ring on!
