My boyfriend and I decided to get married. I told him I don't want a ring because I don't wear jewelry. Big rings really get in the way at work (nurse) with gloves and frequent handwashing. I just don't care that much about one so to me it's not worth the money.
So today ge asked my parents for their blessing/permission etc. They were excited, but they think it's a surprise for me... But it's not like there is a proposal or anything.
How do I tell my parents were engaged?
