Title was pretty self explanatory... was your family happy with your engagement?
If no, why not?

LOL Lauren. I told them the night before we left for New Orleans I'd come back a Mrs... My momma = not happy. I knew she wouldn't be so I put off telling her

Not expecting future baby announcements to go over well either, my mom is living her second 20's and fully feels she's "too young" to be a grandmother. I kindly reminded her she has a 6 year old step grand kid now and she moped about it for days I was told.

My parents were so happy about me marrying Daniel. I was kind of surprised too considering I was only 23 and we'd only been together for a year when I got engaged. I'd been in a serious relationship previously though that was really bad, so I think they were just grateful I'd found someone so awesome.

However, I really don't think announcing a pregnancy to them is going to go over the same way, but they have little say in the matter, so I don't really care. lol

My family was really happy... we've been living together for a while and they're all fairly conservative, so making it legal is making them very happy.

His family was the same way... fortunately they like me, and my family likes him. We've been lucky that both of our families have been very supportive, even though they don't really approve of how we do things all the time.

LOL I'm glad you all had an easy time of it! My family feels like he stole me away from them, so there was some resentment.

His feels like I stole his ex from them.. so it's a full lost cause there.

My parents could care less, but then again they could care less about anything I do really. They aren't planning on coming and my dad wont even walk with me down the "isle". His parents were absolutely angered, we put it off for a long time telling them. They think I am totally wrong and horrible for him, they didn't want him finding someone till much later in life after he "lived" and then givin our age difference (8yrs) and the fact that I have 3 kids from a previous marraige, the list could go on a million miles of why they dont like me, but I don't think they would like anyone he brought home
