examples : A month after DH proposed, my older brother proposed to his girlfriend. They got married two weeks after my wedding. Last month my cousin announced his wife was three months pregnant. It's the first great grandchild (besides my SS). Yesterday, my brother announced that his wife just took a pregnancy test and it was positive.
eta : I'm not upset, but some of our family is. They feel like my brother is trying to steal everyone's thunder. I just wanted to see what you ladies thought.
Added : I wanted to add more details about the wedding/engagement and see what you all think about that.
Right after I got engaged, my brother told me he was going to propose to his girlfriend on their 5th year anniversary (three months later). He proposed exactly one month after my proposal, because he said he was caught up in the excitement. He then planned his wedding for the same day as mine. He lives two hours away, so the family would have been forced to choose which one to attend. I'd already booked my venue, while my brother did no planning whatsoever. He HAD to get married on my wedding day, because the date looked cool in Roman Numerals.
His mom (he's my stepbrother) told him that it was wrong to get married on the same day as me, especially since I aas the only dlone doing any planning. which is why he got married two weeks later.
I think the family is pissed, because they remember the initial 'whose wedding should we attend' drama. I think now they feel like my brother and his wife got pregnant so quickly, is because my cousin did. Three months ago, my brother and his wife were adamant that they weren't ready for kids.
