- Wedding: September 2010
Then please don’t say anything at all!
My Future Mother-In-Law really hurt me the other weekend when she bashed the church that we are getting married in. Our wedding is in less than a month.
Future Mother-In-Law isn’t happy because the outside of the church isn’t that nice (it is a downtown church and one of the oldest churches in Toronto). Could the church use a face lift, sure, but it is an United church and an outreach church, they don’t have the same cash flow as the Catholic church Future Mother-In-Law grew up going to.
I just don’t see the point in her telling me she is unhappy when there is absolutely NOTHING that can be done. I know that she would have rather us get married at the Catholic church … but small problem, I’m NOT Catholic … and not willing to convert.
My favourite part of the conversation:
Future Mother-In-Law: Well, at least you’re not doing any photos there
Me: Actually, I am doing all of the family photos tehre
Future Mother-In-Law: *gasp* Well, my family is just going to be appalled. I hope the inside looks better than the outside
That was my breaking point … I am absolutely over all her criticisms. You know what, it is NOT her wedding. I’m done with her “trying to be helpful”, I now just want her to speak when spoken to with regards to the wedding.
I have met resistance every frigging step of the way, it’d just be SO nice if once or twice she’d compliment me on my choices.
I understand our wedding is going to be a little unconventional (sp?), but I have an unconventional family. I don’t want my messed up family situation highlighted any more than it is going to be … and I just wish that she would understand that.
Worst part, is that it is stressing my relationship with my Fiance *sigh*.
