I can understand how you feel!  EVERYONE (including myself) keeps asking why my SO is taking so long, and I’ve even been present when HE’S been asked!  We’ve been together a little over 5 years.  Sometimes I feel like he’ll ask when everyone in our families and circle of friends stops asking!

This is how my family is too! They’re getting impatient waiting for him to ask me (been 5 1/2 years, so I guess it’s a bit understandable). My mom will even introduce him as my fiance, or her SIL. Seriously Mother, calm down! It doesn’t make him feel any better about not having the finances to propose. Last thing he needs is MORE pressure.

I wouldn’t say my mom is mad, but she’s definitely waiting, I think more so than I am! She keeps emailing me links to engagement rings and “subtly” hinting that she wants her daughter to get married. 

ETA: And his mom has skipped right over engagements/weddings and hopped aboard the baby train.  She keeps asking if we’ll give her grandbabies.

My folks aren’t really pushing it to hard. In fact my mother keeps telling me to wait. Dad, well I don’t think he’ll handle it to well once I move out. But my grandmother and aunts keep asking me if he bought me a ring yet. Last Christmas we drove from California to Michigan he met my entire family for the first time. my grandmother kept saying wouldn’t ti be nice he he prosoed to you in front of us all.

Everytime I ask his mother hows she’s doing to her reply for the past year is. “I’d be better if you would marry my son!”

@MissBoPeep:  That’s how his mom is too! Everytime she see’s a baby she smacks him and goes. “Where’s my grandbaby?”

Lol yeah that’s usually my reply, plus the occasional “whenever he decides too”

@FutureMrs.browneyes:  

Oh yeah it’ll be nice to have a different reply. It’ll also be nice to be asked about the wedding plans. Although I have heard it can get old and frustrating after awhile.
