my sister got engaged this weekend, good for her. Her and the guy havent been dating that long so im happy for them but a little skeptical about it. They say they are planning for the summer of 2012 so there is some time if they dont like eachother theyll figure it out because they just moved in together. he seems nice but ive only met him 2-3 times. i judge heavily though and dont have anything negative about him which is good, because i usually do.
So now the question, the guy did ask my mothers permission for my sisters hand and such which i respect, but we dont have a dad around and i want to take this guy to dinner and talk with him. not being a dick and ill kill you stuff but real stuff, whats his family life like, where does he see himself in 10 years, can he support a family of his own so on and so forth. I want to do this because as much as my sister and i fight i do love her and want her to be taken care of and have been looking after her since i was a kid. the only problem is that im younger than them by 4-5 years, im 21 shes 24 and hes somewhere around 24-25 i believe, does that create a problem? What have you fathers said at these things?
As stated im not gonna be a prick and try to act macho, i just want to learn about this guy. i mean shes having my mother and i walk her down the aisle so she kinda realizes it too.
I am pumped that she asked me to walk her down the aisle shes always said that would never happen but when she asked i was shocked and she gave me one of those lets be real you know i wouldnt have it any other way comments, which really means a lot to me. ive done a lot for her over the years and vice versa.
now how have you people paid for these things? they seem expensive as hell!!! i realize its not my problem but damn lol. i think his family wants to help and they want to pay also so it doesnt all fall on my mom but boy do i feel bad.
thanks all and merry christmas/ happy holidays
