Okay so i'm going to preface this with the fact that both my partner and I are from unconventional religions. He's Norse pagan and I'm Hellenic ( Ancient Greek Gods).
Last year I bought him a Viking Axe for Christmas and he loved and cherished it and my parents bough him a knife which he carry's with him when ever it is legal for him to ( e.g. camping).
The problem is that according to his religion we are now betrothed...
Although we have joked about this and discussed it we aren't ready to be engaged and although my family laugh about it, one of my friends is being extremely cruel about it.
She keeps saying that we can't be engaged and that it makes no sense for that to be a proposal. It's not and if she found out how he would actually propose to me according to his beliefs she'd have a heart attack.
Shes also made a lot of comments about how even if we were engaged he's never know what sort of wedding i'd want. This conversation was brought on by us watching "don't tell the bride" and she turned round and said my SO would never be able to do that for me because he doesn't know me well enough to pick things out for me. He over heard this and then described my dream wedding, hen night ( It's part of the show that he plans the Hen night as well) and dress to her along with all the little details like flowers, cake, ring and shoes, which we've never even joked about let along discussed.
I just don't like how she belittles out relationship and beliefs. Is there anything you guys could advise other than not bringing it up because i never have it's always her. At one point one of my other friends said it was jealousy but it can't be that because unlike me she's engaged and planning her wedding with a fully committed and included FI.
