    Well I have been dating this chick for almost a month and instantly we feel in love and last weekend i proposed to her and she said yes. And I am not sure when a good time to let our parents know that we got engaged. I am 23 and my gf will be 21 in a month. She has met my family and i have only met her mom. how long should we wait till we announce our engagement?

    First of all congratulations!! Second, only you and your girl can decide when is the right time to let your parents in on the engagement.

    so then if the parents are such a big issue in this ordeal, then why did you get engaged in the first place??

    yes, you're in love, but should you of really of jumped to this stage in the game that fast? especially knowing before hand how both of your guys parents would feel about it??

    i dunno man...

    As soon as possible-even if it is rather soon, that's your choice-they'll appreciate you telling them.

    well we are gonna wait till we both graduate from college until we get married which won't be for like in 16 months. And that she broke up with her old bf about a week before we met. And her parents are stubborn that they like the ex-bf to get back with her even though she hates him from them breaking up so many damn times.

    You're 23? :hsugh:

    I dont want to sound like I'm trolling, but holy shit dude, whatever others are saying a month is too quick, for anyone. You don't get to know someone well enough in a year, yet alone a month. And she's still on the rebound!

    Seriously, wait more than the potential 16 months. Hell, I bet you might not be together in 16 months. Please, for our divorce rate, consider waiting a few years.

    The day after you purchase the ring.

    At that time, you will of course, show the parents,- and ask for their blessings. :)
