I'm in that situation but the difference is that he is not my fiance, he was my boyfriend. Well, what I told him to do was to do things that are not just for me but for my family. Meaning, like one time, when my mom was to go to my brother's school and she only would ride a public trasportation, my boyfriend, although he's late for work already, waited for my mom to finish what she's doing and he broght her to the school. I know it sounds very simple but it's the small things accumulated all together that makes up the big things. He need not to show outrageous things just to show off because showing off is not SINCERE. More than anything, He should also prove HIS LOVE for you. Actions speak louder than words so if your parents see that he really proves himself to you, cares for you and understands you, and he is considerate not just to you but to your parents as well, then I guess in time it will not be harder for them to like him. Good Luck!! =)
