Wow! If you don’t mind me asking, what is it that they don’t approve of exactly? Is it just because you’re engaged or is it that you waited until 3 weeks before the wedding to tell them? I don’t know much about the Jehovah’s Witnesses’ views on marriage and dating and all that and I doubt many other bees do. Could you enlighten us?

I’m sorry you have to deal with this right now. Congratulations on your upcoming marriage!

@sunitagt:  Oh, I see. And is your FI still a Jehovah’s Witness?

Wow, that’s pretty rough. I got married to a man who is Christian, his family goes to church reguarly and are VERY involved in church events (the private school, choir, volunteer groups etc.) I was somewhat concerned seeing that while I believe in God, I was not very church-oriented. Luckily, I enjoy going to church ith my DH (he never pressured me to go, just invited me), and I get along well with his family.

Hopefully in your situation, even though his parents are not supportive, they will learn to be cordial once you have gotten married. I also don’t think it helped that he waited until three weeks before the wedding to tell them. I really think that you should talk to them as a couple.

I am not too familiar with Jehova’s Witnesses….what is their religin like, and what religion do you and your FI practice (If you don’t mind answering)
