@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…

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?
