I saw “Today my future SIL decided to send my fiance a bunch of texts saying that she hasn’t bought her plane ticket yet & will not buy one unless FI defriends her ex-husband on facebook.”

…and burst out laughing.

Seriously? How immature is that? Good grief. I certainly wouldn’t play into petty games like that. If your FI being friends with someone on Facebook is enough to deter his sister from attending his wedding then it doesn’t sound like she really wants to be there anyway. I’d tell her to suck it up or stay home.

Ah, FB where friendships go to die. 

LOL! Kidding! 

But still this seems like there is something more to the SIL’s story I mean why now all of a sudden is she demanding your FI take her ex-husband off of his friend’s list? I wonder if she is just trying to find a way to not come for other reasons. 

If she ends up not coming it won’t be that big of a deal right? I mean it could be just one person not going for inapproperiate reasons, so no one will really notice her since it seems clear the family isn’t happy with her husband’s choice of being so controlling anyway. 

The point is this: You don’t have to take anyone off of Facebook because someone else doesn’t like it, and your wedding is two weeks away – CONGRATS! Be happy, this is a time to finish last minute things you need to get done, to prepare, don’t let this woman take any of your happiness away. Prioritize….And she isn’t a priority. 

CONGRATS again on getting married in two weeks!! That feel must be so wonderful!

Doesn’t sound like much of a loss not to have this spoiled, bullying brat at your wedding. I will never understand people who think they can use brinkmanship  to control their families.

My concern here is how controlling fSIL’s husband is.  If he is controlling her contact with her family like this there are many red flags waving here and I wonder just how safe her situation is.  When someone keeps you away from your family like this it is usually part of a very abusive situation.
