If he has the ring he obviously wants to marry you. Just explain to him that the subject came up with your parents the last time you saw them and that they offered to pay for part of the wedding whenever you two were ready to be married.

I think since he willk obviously propose in the future, it would be good to tell him what they said. It might help him get a timeline for proposal in mind 🙂

I would tell him causally, but not make a big deal of it.

When SOs share their lives they tell each other what is going on as it is going on.  If the offer is being made now, you should tell him now.  Don’t ask him if he wants it. Just mention that it was offered without expecting an response.  To me, it would seem strange if you had that info now but held onto it until later.

Oh, I’d definitely tell him!  Just bring it up casually and you should be fine.  Doesn’t seem like a big deal to me.
