- Wedding: September 2014
My situation is as follows. My boyfriend and I are in a diamond dash scavenger hunt. First place is a 10,000 dollar diamond ring. Now I realize that the odds of us actually winning are slim to none. If we do win we would get engaged but not necessarily right away. We are going through a transition time with moving in together and I want to wait until he is settled here and finding a job that we actually would and to be able to tell our families together once we do, by ourselves. However I feel that if we do win, (very unlikely i know this) that we will have to get engaged right then. That, that is what they are expecting and it would be awkward for us to just take the ring without a proposal. I also would not want my family to find out before, news/newspapers before we had a chance to tell them.
So am I acting completely crazy about this or are my concerns justified and what is your opinion on all of this. I hope I explained it all well enough.
