- Wedding: January 2013
Fiance and I have been engaged for months, however we didnt announce it til yesterday due to so many people on his side and my side getting engaged, getting married and going through divorces.
So after months of waiting so we dont steal anyones thunder we announced to the rest of the family and our friends our engagement on FB. We are a military family and with most of our friends spread out over the country and deployed we thought it was a good way to get in touch with everyone. Of course his parents knew as did my mother and siblings.
FI’s niece married just two weeks ago, his cousin two weeks before that, my sister a month ago, and our friends wedding was in between all that. So we held our tongues and then finally we told everyone yesterday.
NOW THE CRAPPY PART.
My 55 year old aunt who just last week called me a muslim loving socialist announced her engagement the same day. SHE ISNT EVEN DATING ANYONE!!!! I asked her daughter whats with that, and she said her mother doesnt like anyone to have any attention and she is still mad at me cause I hid her feed on FB because of all the political comments she made and what she said to me.
So she decided to get engaged to herself and even went out last night and bought a ring and posted a pic of it on facebook. She lives in another state so the family doesnt see her that often or know if she is dating or not, but now she is being congratulated along with me on our engagements. Everyone keeps mentioning that its sso wonderful that we share an actual engagement date.
Its crap. I know it sounds selfish but I have never shared anything major in my life and this one time, she has to do this out of spite.
I know its not rational but its childish for her to do this and because everyone keeps mentioning two brides, it bothers me.
Sorry for the rant.
