He told me that although I worry about money all the time he doesn't and it's because he knows he will be getting a large inheritance. He's also counting on getting some money from our wedding.

Wow! How naieve! (((((((((CID)))))))))))) This is unrealistic at best, and stupid/selfish at worst. Not to mention how many assumptions he's tossed in there. I don't care what he thinks he knows about his parent's fiances, so rarely are those impressions accurate. What if one of them gets sick and uses the money to live off of? What if they decide to travel? It's THEIR money. Not his.

CID, forgive my bluntness. If you weren't engaged, and you went on a date with a total cutie who explained he held the above belief, what would you do? I venture to guess you would run for the hills.

I encourage you to work towards separating your fiances now, so that you are free to make a positive decision that will impact the rest of your life.
