4 years ago he proposed and he is still just your fiance? I'm not judging just curious.
Nothing too surprising here. My husband and I were engaged for four years before we could afford to pay for our wedding. We also moved to two different states in that time period and had to resettle ourselves before saving and planning. Not every situation or engagement is ideal. Sounds like they were saving up and becoming stable before they got married. Sucks that he wasn't as committed to the relationship. :(
He's just a dick making you out to be the bad guy so he doesn't have to be. Its yours and his relationship, not the parent's. Hell, the parents are probably afraid he'd give you more money than him if he married you, therefore not liking you. He sounds like a little boy stuck on mommy's teet, lose him!
It might be a different situation since my father and his girlfriend are both 51. I'm not sure if age is a factor. But they've been together for almost 10 years and engaged for almost half of that. They're just moving in together this summer and planning on officializing their relationship through marriage. Sometimes it's better to wait.
I'm actually engaged for 8 years at the moment. He's only getting married because I want to so he pretty much let's me decide whatever I want when it comes to the date. We love each other, we know we want to be together, so there's no rush behind it. While 8 years of engagement sounds mental, it doesn't if you got all the details. I got engaged before starting my higher education (at 17,5 years old), we moved in during my 3rd year of education (and I wouldn't want to get married without living together) and I recently finished my bachelor's degree (about a year ago). I didn't want to get married during school, that's hectic enough and afterwards I wanted to focus on getting a job. Now that I've got a steady job, plans are moving forwards, for 2018. I'm recently employed, I still need to save up some. So by the time we are married we'll have been engaged for 11 years and together for 12. Sounds like a lot but it really isn't?
They are well aware of the fact that you met him before he was rich, they just don't like you.
He's probably just easily led by his parents' words. Also, I'm a little bit iffy about a lot of people calling him a mother's boy. He has a father too and the father could be doing most of the talking for all we know. In fact, "in-laws" could be referring to his entire family.
in parts of India marriage is like a business transaction. and often it is the grooms parents who call the shots. there is a belief that a bride is an 'investment' and even though dowry is illegal that factors in too. it's really miserable for women. and anyone wanting to have a non-arranged marriage
I wonder if the fiancé is upset at all about the engagement being so long, if op is the one that wants to wait and has been pushing the date further and further away? Maybe it doesn't have as much to do with gold digging (for him) as much as him questioning why op doesn't want to get married yet? Just a possibility. I don't understand how the fiancé can really think she's a gold digger if she was with him when he was penniless. Maybe the in laws think she's a gold digger and he's questioning her commitment to actually getting married?
What? Someone could have all the finest qualities. Loyalty, compassion, honesty, and be attractive as well, while dumb as a box of rocks. But their money allows you to travel the world, eat the finest foods, etc. Or you could be with a broke, smart ass who says, "This is why we can't have nice things."
