My brother got married last summer. My boyfriend and I had talked about getting married but I told him we needed to wait until after they were married for us to get engaged to ensure we didn’t “steal any of their thunder”.
Since then, my boyfriend I have decided to forgo getting married and would like to start a family first.
I know it sounds silly, but do we have to consult with my brother and sister-in-law first? Since they were married first, the next natural step is for them to start a family also (and I know they do want a family).
Do we need to wait for them to have one first? If it turns out that she gets pregnant first, should my boyfriend and I quit “trying” until after they have their baby so to again not steal their thunder? How long do we have to wait? Or am I being too polite here?
