Tell them “You’ll be the second to know.” Are they always this nosy and invasive?

acg90 :  Well… you COULD tell them. It’s totally your choice of course (“your” plural, you and soon-to-be-fiance’s) so if you don’t want to you don’t have to. But it sounds like you want to, so you COULD. It doesn’t have to be a big surprise. Is there a reason you guys are keeping it secret?

You’re understandably and justifiably excited because you are by any definition engaged with or without a formal proposal or the ring on your finger. You can tell the family  now or whenever it feels right to you. No waiting period necessary!

Keep yourself busy and avoid seeing them for two weeks if possible. That’s what I’d do 😜 I remember the lead up to my engagement and being constantly questioned and it drove me insane! So I feel for you. Congrats though super exciting!

Uh… Maybe they found out about the ring? Maybe your SO said something that made them suspicious?
