@denisi33:  WHAT!  His wife will leave him if he goes to his brothers wedding!?  Unless she’s going in for surgery or is due to deliver their child very close to the wedding I can’t see a valid reason for such an ultimatum.

Woah. Best man is one thing, but BROTHER??!?! This is nuts and just unacceptable. What a psycho. That is so sad, I’m sorry you are dealing with this.

@denisi33:  *sigh* Some people need to get off the crazy train. Hopefully this doesn’t lead to strained relationships.

It’s probably a good thing that I’m not this guy, because I would see that as a dare.  No one will stop me from attending my sibblings wedding.

Wow.  What a stupid biatch.  Your brother’s wedding isn’t a “vacation”.  

I’m really sorry 🙁

@denisi33:  By “family” do you mean wife and kids or just her? If he is leaving her at home with three kids for a long weekend, I could see her being a bit miffed that he is going on vacation without her (but the ultimatum is still insane) but if it’s just going without her…then I really don’t get it.

@denisi33:  Oh man. What a bummer. Especially as it seems extremely likely that their marriage won’t last (someone so insecure they can’t face their partner going to a sibling’s wedding is… troubled) and in the end he will have missed his brother’s wedding to please someone unpleasable.

That said, and as crushed as your fiance must be, I hope it won’t drive them apart. Someone married to that much of a control freak is going to need some support from his family in the years to come…

@denisi33: 

Woah… that’s not good.
If she is going to threaten their marriage for this, he will again. and again. I see divorce in the future. Clearly the marriage is all about her.

Your FBIL needs to know that his brother, your FI, IS family.

Poor guy. She obviously has a lot of control over him. 🙁

@denisi33:  it is a bit selfish of his wife to give him that sort of ultimatum.  is she a jealous, insecure person?  maybe it’s financial?  i can understand that your fbil chooses his wife first.  he should.  i’m sure your fi would choose you over anyone or anything but still it’s a bit weird.

unfortunately, when you are having a dw, these are the things that you sign up for.  not everyone will be able to attend (for whatever the reason).

are you going to have a party back at home where your fbil will be able to enjoy and celebrate your marriage?
