How do I tell them? - March 27th 2010, 01:42 AM

Last night my bf asked me to marry him and I said yes, but he's planning on asking me again on christmas infront of my friends and family. He's already got the ring picked out and he knows everything that he's going to do to it. He's paying for it on his own even though its really expensive. I love him more than anything and I know I want to be with him for the rest of my life. He feels the same way. I'm 16 and he's 17, but we would wait until we're both done with school before we actually got married. My mom doesn't like him which I don't really care what she thinks of him. Everyone else likes him. He's the most amazing guy I have ever met. Should I tell them about us getting engaged now or wait til he asks me again on christmas with the actual ring? If now how do I tell them?

Firstly, congratulations! I wish you guys a ton of happiness!
Secondly, I think you should just wait until he asks you again, otherwise it wouldn't be a surprise.

First- Congrats! Second- I'd wait til he asks again, that way you have the ring and all; it seems more.. real.

I'd wait until everything is more set in stone... so once he has the ring, and you guys have a date for the wedding, and you've begun to work out where you're going to live, how you're going to make ends meet, etc. That should help set your mother's (and everyone else's minds) at ease.

And congrats! =)
