- Wedding: July 2012
WOW….I fell like I was hit upside the head last night! During my FH softball game someone dropped the date to our wedding and my FMIL is totally against this wedding. Not because she doesn’t like me, but because both me and my FH have already been married once before….needless to say she thinks having another wedding is a waste of money. So right there in front of everyone on the team she spit out….are you going to the justice of the peace?? I said um…no. Then she goes on about how I’ve already had my big wedding and that it’s a waste of money and stupid to have a big wedding…..can you say WOW!!!! I mean I understand everyone is entilted to their own opinions, but that I believe was a convo we should have had in private. I was embarassed and needless to say very upset. I lost my mom to cancer in 2006, so right now my FH mom is really the only mother figure I have in this whole thing….it really hurt my feelings that she doesn’t support our decision….now we need to figure out how to approach this whole situation, get her on board, and not upset her. The last thing I want is for her to hate me 🙁 The thing is we’re paying for this wedding ourselves and we’re both adults, I would think we can make this decision ourselves!
Anyone else having issues with their FMIL???
