- Wedding: October 2010
So this is my second wedding. I was married 8 years ago and it just didn’t work out. We were young and everyone kept telling us not to and we did anyway. Prior to my first wedding, my mother had move to the other side of the country when I was 14 years old. No notice. Nothing. One day she was gone and I lived with my grandmother, who from practically that day on has been my mother. My mom and her now husband came to live here the day before my wedding. I mean literally the day before. She helped with some decorating and that was all. She paid for nothing. But I was glad to have her there. Now FF to today. I am set to be remarried. This time forever! Since I had a bigger wedding the first time and my Fiance eloped his first time around, we decided to have a traditional wedding in his hometown instead of mine. He is from Texas and we currently live in Washington. We announced our engagement over a year before the wedding because we knew everyone would need to save for travel expenses if they wanted to go. Now there are 3 months until the wedding and my mother calls me to say she cannot afford to go..but they did just come back from a week stay in New York. I call my grandmother to confirm that my mother is indeed not going. My grandmother states she isn’t either because she is too old. Yes she is 77 but she is in perfect health. Walks faster than me and takes only hormone pills. My father will not be going because he is in recovery and can’t afford it. Which I completely understand. Now. I am pissed, sad, and regretting this whole out of state wedding thing. Right now on my list of people on my side I have…my two children, my older sister, and childhood friend…pretty lonely! Am I being insensitive?
