Hello all! I am hoping to get some advice. I just got engaged a week ago and I am trying to decide how to tell my parents. I live about 10 hours away from them so it's not very easy to just drop in and see them. I have always dreamed of telling them in person so my mom and I could jump around together, but since that is not so easy I was thinking of video chatting with them and telling them, but I feel that just isn't as special. I will see them soon for Thanksgiving, but then my Fiancé won't be with me, and I really want us to tell them together. So I feel I have two options: tell them now via video chat so my FI can be there, or tell them in person when I see them next week but my FI won't be with me.
Any thoughts on which would be best? I'm very close to my parents so I want to make sure I tell them in the best way possible.
Thank you all!
