Just out of School
I am in an awkward point right now and could use some advice. I just graduated this semester with my BA (at age 20....) and my boyfriend/fiancee is graduating next semester. I have a fulltime salary job in the financial industry and am going back to school next year to become a CFP. My man is in the USMC and 5 years older than me. We just moved in together and seriously, its going really well.
We've been engaged for a couple of months but have told no one because, well frankly my parents. I have 2 dads (one adoptive/step, and one bio) who both have a lot of influence and think that I am still 5 years old. I know my mother would slowly be okay with it (especially if we have a long engagement... which we will to save money for the wedding. We're setting a tentative date for October of 2017!). My dads however, would not be so forgiving.
So to cut to the chase. What do we do? I suggested we wait for a ring/public proposal until next year sometime so we would have lived together for almost a year. My man is not excited about waiting but is willing to do it... I don't know. I'm just concerned I'm not doing something right here.
