My younger brother is a competitive guy, and had been dating his gf for four years with no engagement in sight. my boyfriend told him when he planned to propose to me, and my brother decided to ask his gf a week earlier. Whatever. I was excited for them, withheld any snark, and just was thrilled for them.
Fast forward a month, we're now both engaged, they planned their wedding for June, and when I told him our August date, his response was that it was TOO CLOSE to theirs!! Two months later! I'm getting married in Maine, and can't wed during the September Jewish holidays, and the venue has one open Saturday for the whole summer.
There is absolutely no way he's correct, and i'm somehow planning to close to his, right? I'm not going to try to do an engagement party near his, or anything else to take away from his special events. I just want my one day in Maine to marry my best friend.
