Just a little introduction about myself I have been going with my partner for almost 5 years now, I believe in a very traditional engagement and tbh find it ludicrous with people getting engaged and married after a short space, as I’ve known lots of friends to do this and it ends in a mess.
We just got the news about my partners siblings engagement, I’m going to call her J, well she’s being in this relationship for less than a year and her fiancée, is an asylum seeker. The thing is as far as I’ve heard they are quite dysfunctional and have constant arguments. The thing is that I’m concerned he’s using her to get a visa and considering he has just been convicted of criminal damage I believe he panicked about getting possibly deported, thus the engagement. Along with this J is very naive and is quite tunnel-vision and won’t listen to anyone.
Don’t get me wrong I am happy for her but I think as soon as he has his visa he will split with her and clear off, which would leave her a mess and I sincerely care about her as she is a lovely person.
Now the thing is should I voice my opinion or just keep my mouth shut, me and my partner got in a heated discussion about this last night and I just don’t know what to do.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
