Hmm.. sounds like something my brother would do.  He isn’t much into talking on the phone at all and hates being put on the spot even more.  Also, not sure what the deal was with his parents splitting but I know for me and my brother that he is still upset with my Dad for causing the split and for hurting my mom, me and him by his actions.  My brother still does things with my Dad but they aren’t buddy buddy like say he is with my mom.  Hope that helps

btw.  Congrats on the engagement.  It took us a little over 3 years, a mortage and dog to get to this stage too! I know you must be on cloudnine!

Honestly, it’s kind of his call on how/when he tells his dad about it.  If they do have an awkward relationship, then maybe leaving a voicemail was the best thing he knew to do.  I say don’t push it anymore.

Agree with Mrs. Mouse.  I think the best arrangement for most couples is for you to deal with your family and him to deal with his family.  You may have your own thoughts about what’s best, but ultimately he knows his family a lot better than you do.  I would say drop it.  You can express your excitement to his father next time you see him.
