@YogaFaerie:  I’m so sorry you’re dealing with this.  Good for your FI to eliminate unhealthy relationships in his life and focus on the good ones (you).  It sounds like you both deserve an awesome day to celebrate, wishing you the best for your wedding!!

@YogaFaerie:  That’s a tough situation to be in but it looks like the two of you are handling it in a classy manner, which speaks volumes. Don’t let others guilt you into doing something that will make your special day uncomfortable. We all have certain family members like that, I know I do. I’m sure everything will be fine. Congratulations and I wish you the very best.

She can hope whatever she wants.

You two know what you’re doing and why. Unfortunately, there will always be some people who want to go about things another way and try to push you to. Just let comments like “hopes” wash off you like water off a duck’s back, and if they press too hard, tell it to them straight that they haven’t the right to try to impose their wants on you, nor to demand you justify your decisions.

My situation’s different, of course, but I deal with meddlers “just trying to help,” too. I roll my eyes, maybe fume for a short while, but in the end, I just forget what they say. It wasn’t right for them to say it so I haven’t any reason to rememeber it.

@YogaFaerie:  Oh, no worries, I know exactly what you’re going through. Both sides of my extended family are at war over separate issues. We’re talking brothers, sisters, aunts and uncles who haven’t spoken to each other in over a decade over the DUMBEST stuff.

My wife and I are always in the middle. I cringe everytime I get an email or phone call from them. I want to live my life in peace! lol.
