- Wedding: June 2009
My Father-In-Law cheated on my Mother-In-Law, they divorced, and now my Father-In-Law is still with that same woman. My Mother-In-Law has a a boyfriend now too. My Mother-In-Law has struggled deeply with the emotional trauma of my FIL’s betrayal. They were together for like 20 years or something. Anyway, my Future Sister-In-Law and BIL have invited my MIL’s boyfriend (he refuses to go bc he says it’s not right), and my FIL’s mistress/girlfriend. My FIL seems to want to bring his girlfriend to my Future Sister-In-Law and BIL’s wedding, but knows that this might upset my Mother-In-Law. My BIL insists on the girlfriend coming, and says that if my Mother-In-Law gets drunk and out of hand because of her presence, then he will ask her to leave. Doesn’t this all sound so selfish? I don’t think my FIL nor my MIL’s significant others should be there, especially considering the circumstances. My husband and I did not invite my FIL’s girlfriend to our wedding. It just seemed wrong, you know a slap in the face to my Mother-In-Law. Thoughts?
By the way, I’m not sticking my nose where it doesn’t belong because my FIL vented to ME about this. I always find myself in the middle of things.
