Sorry you have to deal with their selfishness, but you two are probably better off without them.

I am so very sorry!  I understand, my dad has a gambling addiction.  He doesn’t clue my mom in on anything and she found out they were going to be evicted from the house I grew up in with 8 days to spare.  It was just awful.  He still doesn’t clue her in.  He almost declared bankruptcy but filed CHapter 13 and got pennies on the dollar with a lawyer.

Sounds like your parents just enable each other.  

We are going to elope and splurge on our honeymoon.  Then the expectaton of having guests who may not show up is eliminated!  Just a way around less hurt.

Hugs to you.

My parents have financial issues too. I have had to give them well over $30K over the past couple of years to keep them from losing their car and their house. I finally said NO and they get no more money from me. Well I pay them TWICE as much rent now and they still havn’t got their tickets to come. I am preparing myself for it so that I am not upset if they dont come but it isn’t easy. My dad says they are trying and I am thinking they want me to pay. I refuse. I have a wedding budget and my sons school and extra curriculars to pay for. I am not enabling their poor spending habits anymore. I talk to my parents several times a week, just to talk and catch up, they talk to my son almost daily too but if they cant save up money to come then I will deal and not foot the bill. Sorry you are going through this though!
