Groomsman and his wife came to stay with us last weekend. DISASTER.
Not only did they change all of our plans and then exclude me from the new ones, his wife rolled her eyes at me nonstop for checking my blackberry during dinner (its not like it was a date), ordering salad instead of breadsticks (I’m gluten intolerant and on a diet), and getting up at 5 am to run a half marathon (I’m a runner and she didn’t have to go). Then she promised to walk our dog that she, “SQUEE LOVES SO MUCH” while we were at my race…I came home and the dog had wet the wee wee pad twice and had no water. Then, at my birthday dinner that night, she badmouthed my “loud friends,” and complained and whined until my fiance had to call it a night with them and leave me there.
So, the next day I texted my Maid/Matron of Honor and said that the wife was super lame and not only whined my whole birthday dinner but left me out of EVERYTHING and then talked badly about me being a ‘blonde bimbo’ behind my back…(I have a law degree).
Then, wifey goes through my cell phone when I’m not looking, finds the text msg. Tells groomsman I wrote all kinds of bad things about her. Groomsman tells fiance that he needs to ‘control me better, or he’s gonna lose friends.’ and then they both de-friend me on facebook…
Ugh. Now I think they’re out of the wedding- I don’t want them there anyway, but I feel bad for my fiance, who also seems to have lost a friend b/c his friend’s wife SNOOPS.

you should not be checking your phone during dinner, its rude but there is no excuse for her going through your phone, thats an invasion of privacy and wrong on so many levels (my own husband doesnt look at my phone)
im reminded once again that we pick our friends and not our friends partners, sadly your Fiance and his exGM seem to be the ones that paid the price because you two ladies couldnt play nice and fake it for a weekend

I would count this as a blessing. Why would you even want people like that in your life? They’re acting like they are 12!

Did the groomsmen actually step down? Mayve you didn’t get off on the right foot with the wife because of checking your blackberry, but she was out of line looking at your messages. As ElopingSaudi, we cannot pick our friends’ life partners.

Anyman that thinks he can control a woman (or anyone) is not someone I would want in my life.

I guess I should edit to add that the only reason I checked my blackberry during dinner is because I am an attorney at a law firm, and the only reason that I can even do things like go to dinner is because I have a blackberry that I can answer instead of sitting at my desk.

@futuremrsfitz18: He didn’t back down, but they both unfriended me on facebook and made it clear to my fiance that they want me out of their lives – either thru his dumping me or them no longer being our friends. I’ve been chosen, so that’s it.
@youknowlmoe: Oh I agree. that is the type of statement that I don’t take lightly. I have a pretty high powered job and am the breadwinner in our family – I also am highly educated on womens’ issues and a mentor in my profession before the age of 30. No one “Gets this b*tch under control” lol.
@eloping: If you had my job, you’d check your blackberry during dinner too. I left at 7 pm to meet them and an emergency cropped up at work that required me to walk a junior associate through a problem or leave dinner and do it myself. it was either spend a few minutes on the phone OR spend a few hours writing court papers. Homegirl needed to get over herself – it is the 21st century…but she doesnt’ approve of me having a higher-earning job than my fiance. Because she thinks we are on a set of Mad Men.
