    Fingers crossed that she gets VD tonight. Good luck.

    Sounds harsh taken out of context that!

    Best of luck with all the problems and the proposal.

    As a father I didn't get to know my daughters boyfriend for almost 2 years, as I said to my other half when it all goes pear shaped between them I'll end up sorting it out which will be difficult if I'm his best mate. But to give him his due after 5 years he has treated her right and has made an effort with me so now we get on.
    So make an effort with the parents, discuss your future plans with them and let them know you are right for their daughter. As for the brother-in-law don't worry just let your girly know you don't like him and think he is an asshole but never never criticise her sisters, even be cautious when she does.

    Act like a dumbshit and they will treat you as an equal

    I hear you, Wayneh. Also, I should point out that her parents are unfortunately not a factor in this scenario. They have both passed on.
    But yes, never criticise her sisters. Wise words. That's one argument that I will never win.

    Oh, and look, here is the engagement ring I bought. I have to say, I am not a jewellery person. I can't help but wish that it was socially acceptable to give electrical goodies instead of rings.



    At least it looks pretty. I wish I was richer. I saw a brilliant 3000 ring, but I am not going for a loan. Even if it is 0% APR deal. The wedding itself will set me back loads and I may splurge more than I can afford on wedding rings proper.

    Very nice ring, looks very expensive! My mate got married 5 years ago and is still trying to pay it off lol. IMO a wedding is a very special day but not something you want to cripple yourself financially for.
    Good luck with the wedding and your future in-laws.

    Act like a dumbshit and they will treat you as an equal

    I haven't followed this thread very closely, but it sounds like your brother-in-law has been away. Did you take the opportunity to break into his shed/garage and destroy his vice?
    If not, you need to take a long hard look at yourself, and more particularly your username.

    Not as nice as I used to be

    @Alastair
    I am looking at myself. In shame. I did not break his vice when I had a chance to do it.

    @facepalm and @wayneh I can't speak for others, but I don't want there to be any chance of certain family members sneering at my big day. And before you guys pull me up on it, I realise that I am preparing for the big day with the wrong attitude. But we are talking about things many moons in the future. Once it is clearer, and I am sat with my calculator, working it all out, I will know exactly what I can afford. McDonalds or Burger King.

    The 2 best weddings I've been to we're my own (which cost a lot) and an old friends who didn't have a lot to spend, had a hot/cold fork buffet for the wedding breakfast and then had the evening do at a friends house which was a bring and share BBQ. We all got to go home and get changed into more casual, relaxed clothes and just enjoy the party. The wedding doesn't make the marriage. As long as you have the wedding you want and don't saddle yourself with debt that can put stress on your relationship.

    Yes, I agree with that, Daisy. My finances don't allow for a wedding for at least three years. And like I said, once I am in a position to, I'll sit down with my calculator and see what I can stretch to. Without leaving myself in any debt that will take more than 6 months to clear.

    When I got engaged, we sat down and figured out how long it would take to save for a wedding both our families would like.

    I'm about 2/3 of the way through an engagement that will have lasted a shade over 2 years. Definitely better to save than to land yourself in debt for the sake of a single day.

    The world is going mad. Me? I'm doing fine.

    Let's say you're swimming some lengths in a pool. In the lane next to you there's a pretty girl. There's a couple of other people swimming, and some sat in the jacuzzi next to the pool. You notice that the pretty girl's tampon string is conspicuously hanging out the bottom of her swimsuit. Do you tell her?

    I swim slowly over, gently tug on the tampon string with my teeth and give her the puppy dog eyes, no words required.
    Chicks love that shit...

    Then you wake up and realise you've got a mouthful of nunchuck.

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    How did you give it her VD?

    I came home, and asked her to stand up, so I could talk to my unborn child, like a baby whisperer. Cunningly disguising my bended knee.

    "What's that , McAnfu? I should ask mummy to put her hand out?"

    She then got the ring. And thankfully said yes.

    Well you managed to impregnate her, so that helped the "yes".

    But congrats. :)

    But McAnfu? What kind of a name is that for a kid?

    A name from a man who likes Blue Dragon.

    Evil, warped, out of control.

    McAnfu is a great name, the Lion Rampant meeting the African Lion ;)
