Ooooh, yikes.  This is a toughie.  My advice is to just let things happen if they’re going to happen.  And then wait a few weeks to make the announcement to friends and family.  As long as your cousin gets a little time to be in the limelight, it should be fine!

That is tough and I totally applaud you for wanting to let your cousin have some time in the limelight!  I agree with Miss Mouse, let things happen, just wait to announce it for a few weeks. 

My fiance and I got engaged around Christmas, and then his sister got engaged exactly 1 week later.  I felt kinda like we didn’t get a chance to celebrate and everything because everyone had been waiting and waiting for them to finally get engaged (they’ve been dating for 6 years) and so we just got pushed to the wayside.

Hmm I’d say let everything happen in its own time.  If you feel that uncomfortable you can definitely wait a few weeks or a month to announce your own engagement, or call your friend that got engaged and let her know.  She may be so thrilled that you are engaged too and you can share in the experience.  I know personally if this happened to me, I’d be thrilled!!

I second Bellenga. Let it happen naturally, but then explain to Fiance that you’d prefer to wait until after the wedding to share your sparkiling news!

I agree with bellenga- let the boy have his moment if he decides to, then share a secret for a few days. Could be lots of fun- cryptic emails, naugthy notes…hmmm…
