A couple week’s ago, FBIL’s wife up and left and decided they were done. He moved back home with his parents temporarily until the lease on their rental house is up. He’s been keeping pretty quiet during his coping and FMIL is running around like mad trying to make sure he’s okay. Obviously this is a very distressing situation for the people directly involved, but I feel like now everything is revolving around the pending divorce and associated negative feelings. I can no longer bring up wedding planning..or anything remotely happy, it seems.
To top it off, we were supposed to head down to my parents’ house Father’s day weekend so the parents could meet my family but now it’s been fully cancelled by the future in laws. They don’t want to leave FBIL at home alone and they don’t want to take him on the trip because people will be talking about the wedding. My feeling is that he’s an adult going through a difficult time, but he can handle one night alone and the parents could stand to give him some space and stop tip-toeing around.
