Over vacation, my now fiancé, proposed. I knew that it was
going to happen since we already went and picked out our rings. Also,
only his best friend and mine are aware that we are now engaged. I want to tell my parents first and then his, but there are a few things that I'm worried about...
first one is that he doesn't have his license or a vehicle yet. This is
because when he was younger he didn't bother to get it in high school
then went off into the Army (which, unfortunately, didn't work out for
him). But there really hasn't been anyone around that has been willing
to help him try and get his license til I came along. It's a slow
process right now because we work opposite schedules (He works days, I
work nights). Because of this, I don't know how my parents are going to
react. I know that they like him and already treat him as one of the
family, but I don't know if this will effect their reaction.
second reason as to why I'm worried is because of his parents. They have
had issues with me for no reason since we started dating. His dad even
went to far as to call me a gold digger before, claiming that if I broke
up with him they would know that I succeeded in taking his money. Now,
I've never been interested in his money. When I was unemployed I only
asked for gas money whenever we would go places for our dates. I
actually hated that he would spend money on me when I couldn't do the
same for him. Once, earlier this year, his mom even went through one of
his bills for a jewelry store. She flipped out on him saying thing like,
"Why are you getting HER a ring?"
Because of this, I hate being at
his house when his parents are home or even talking with them because I
know that they'll be nice to my face but talk crap later.
because of all this, I'm nervous to tell my parents then his. There
really is no reason to be nervous with my mom, but can someone give me
some advice on how to break the news?
