So I’ve always had an idea about what I wanted my wedding to be like, and it always involved my parents liking my FI. I wanted a warm ceremony and reception where the immediate families were genuinely happy that we’re getting married.
My chances of having that were actually kind of abysmal, since my parents didn’t like FI since he’s agnostic. But….I just got a phone call from my mom and she said that since she’s gotten to know FI better she sees what I see in him and she actually said that I’m lucky to have him!!!
I just had to tell you, bees, because this is the best news I’ve ever gotten. I know family approval isn’t everything, and as you can tell, I was going to marry him regardless, but I’m so happy that my mom has come around. 🙂

Congrats!!! I was in a serious relationship where my family DESPISED my SO and it was so hard on me! I think my family likes my FH moreso than me! Lol

That was really sweet of your mom to say! It’s always so hard to admit when you’re wrong about something. I wasn’t a huge fan of my brother’s girlfriend when I had first met her, and I was really skeptical of them dating. Since I’ve gotten to know her, she’s really changed my opinion of her, and I’m really excited that he proposed to her. I think she’s a great addition to our family and I’ve happily admitted that I was completely wrong about her.

@2PeasinaPod: I didn’t like my sister’s husband at first, either, but it turns out he’s a really great guy.

Yeah!!!! I am so happy for you. It hurts when the people that you love most do not love each other. I am glad that your wedding can now move forward with the approval and acceptance of your mother as well! Congratulations and enjoy the process.
