- Wedding: June 2011
I’ve been engaged for a little over 1 year and have been with my boyfriend close to 8 years. Our parents have never met. His family is Jewish and my family is Chinese. My mom in particular is traditional Chinese. For some unknown reason, she refuses to meet my fiance’s parents until rehearsal and indicated that traditional Chinese ceremonies are meant to be done separately so that his family will never get to experience any of them. She may be right but I’m being put in a really bad place – my fiance’s parents are losing their patience and think that I keep making up excuses. Yes-I am the messenger all the time b/c somehow, Chinese people don’t like to address the problems themselves. I’m 4 months away from my wedding and today, I seriously thought about scrapping the whole thing and just go to Vegas, but faraway friends have already purchased nonrefundable tickets. Is anyone else experiencing this? This whole past year since the engagement has not been a happy one.
