When did you let your family know that you were thinking of getting engaged? Or that you had already become engaged?
My boyfriend has been making proposal noises recently but we haven’t met each other’s families yet, because we both live in Korea, his family is in the Philippines, and mine is in Canada. My parents know I’m in a happy relationship, but they don’t know that he’s planning to ask and I’m planning to say yes. I would rather wait for them to meet him before I ask for their blessing. However, it won’t be possible for them to meet him for another 8 months or so. His family knows that he’s going to ask me to marry him. This week he asked me to go with him to talk to the priest about marriage preparation. It’s getting to the point that I have to talk to my parents about it. So when did you talk to your family about engagement?
