A part of me wants to tell him #1 the day before I am leaving and #2 when I get back, but I'm not sure that's really the nice thing to do.

imp,

If it were anyone BUT DN, I would go ahead and tell both parts now - heck, I probably would have already done it. Unfortunately, it is DN, so I would go with the above.

He is GOING to wig out, whether it is directly to you, or in front of the kids, or whatever. You can't stop this from happening, so you might as well get your vacation and wedding done and then deal with the crap.

The thing that he doesn't realize, and probably won't realize is that the marriage changes *nothing* where his relationship with the kids or you is concerned. Custody - same. Child care - same. Child support - same. Since it changes nothing, it's none of his darn business until you want to tell him.
