- Wedding: February 2011
I’ll try to keep this brief but my mother does not like my Fiance. To be fair she has never liked anyone I have dated. She & I have a different set of values and she values what other people think. I value being happy.
When I announced my engagement my mother said “great” and I can assure you it was not a loving nice “great” but the kind when you have just dropped your cell phone in the toilet. I cried all the next day.
Since then we have gone to my bothers wedding and she did not along with him. We did not speak for months and I started counseling. We have been speaking again and she came out for 10 days to come help me plan for my wedding. It went OK but not great.
Now a few weeks later and she calls and says I am making a mistake. She does not like him. I am getting married in two months.
I don’t even want her at my wedding at this point. I was already stressed about this whole event and this is pushing me to my breaking point. I am 36 and getting married for the first time and I’ll tell you this is not how I expected it… My mother is really managing to make this a horrible event for me.
