- Wedding: September 2014
And my mother STILL insists that my fiance and I shouldn’t be together. She’s never liked him, and it seems as though she never will. FI was my first serious relationship, and the first guy I dated who drove, meaning dates OUTSIDE of family dinners and TV time at home with my parents. My dad isn’t exactly fond of my FI either, but he is quieter about his opinion. Then, there’s the fact FI and I had our kids out of wedlock, but nevermind us being in a serious relationship and oh, yeah in LOVE. Despite being polite, loving me, working full-time so I can stay at home and go to school, my parents refuse to believe FI is the guy for me. I swear they would prefer me being a single mom.
As if that weren’t bad enough, I should mention FI’s side of the family doesn’t favor me that much either. FI’s mom has talked badly about me behind my back and never visits her grandkids; yet, FI is always expected to go out of his way for her. FI’s stepdad is okay I guess, but I’m still weary of him due to mean things he said during my first pregnancy.
With neither of our families really supportive of mine and FI’s relationship should we really plan a wedding with them there? I’m not so sure… I want them there because it’s a big milestone, but if they’re not cheering us on, is there any point?
