Maybe have him talk to them again just as a heads, my parents were expecting us to get engaged but he wanted to ask  just to keep the piece and make everyone happy.

Since he already asked them once, I think you are in clear. They probably are expecting it, not that you’re done with school.

In this case I would say yes. Maybe he should plan a solo visit or call just because typically the parents are informed/asked for their blessing closer to it actually happening. And early congrats btw!

If I were you I’d take some of the pressure off and make some comment so that your parents know a proposal is likely coming. I’d feel awful for the poor guy if he gets a so-so reaction from them not once, but twice!

Hmm I don’t know.

Since he did ask such a long time ago, then it probably wouldn’t hurt to give them the heads up.

My husband never said anything to my parents. I had told them that I was suspecting that he was working on a proposal, but they never got confirmation until we were engaged. If you are happy with him and you want to marry him, don’t worry about whether or not your parents are prepared for it.

No need for him to ask again. He stuck his neck out once, and they had reservations. Do you think he’d really NOT ask you if they did not offer a blessing? How would that make you feel in the end, knowing that?

You don’t need parents’ permission for anything any longer. It’s ultimately your decision.

I agree this is completely your choice. He already ask, it wouldnt be fair to hime to set that kind of pressure on him all over again. 🙂

I think you should leave it up to him on whether he wants to ask again or not.
