Sounds like a good philosophy, although at some point he needs to man up and realize his mum can take care of herself. Although it’s nice he’s being thoughtful (I guess)…but seriously, why would she go on a downer about him proposing to you?! Thats unfortunate they don’t like you for some unknown reason or another. Grr.

I think standing back and letting it all unfold is a good philosophy. 40 months is over 3 years…she hasn’t figure it out by now?! C’mon. I noticed once I stopped harassing my now-husband about the wedding and proposing, suddenly he felt more of an urge to do it. It must be some weird guy thing =]. It doesn’t hurt to discuss that you need X months to plan a wedding though. Because my husband’s sister planned hers in 3 months, he thought that was all I would need, too! I dropped the "i need 12 months" bomb on him and explained why, so he didn’t time crunch me too much.

Aww.  Good luck.  I think everything will work out.  He’ll never know her reaction until he says something to her.  So he might as well just get it done.

Keep us posted.
