I am not exactly engaged yet, but I know it's coming. My question is, when t does happen, how did everyone tell their parents? I know my mom loves my BF, but she feels like we should wait until we're older to get married because of her own bad experiences. My boyfriend's mom with be absolutely thrilled (she already calls herself my MIL). My dad is the hardest, though; I don't know if I will even invite him to the wedding, because he is very critical, picky, and hates my mom and stepdad. My dad has also been very controlling of me, and is racist toward Mexicans (my BF is Mexican). In any case, what were your own experiences?
