- Wedding: June 2010
I’ve posted here and there about the difficulties I’m facing in my life/wedding planning.
My fiance and I are different races, and my parents disapprove. To be honest, it’s as simple as that. We’re both very well educated, social people who have successful careers. We’re 29 and 31, so we’re old enough to know who we are and who we want to be.
My mom can’t bring herself to pretend to be excited for me, so when I email her about wedding ideas she ignores it. When we talk in person, my mom lets me know what she thinks–that we both need to get ourselves in line and realize what’s best for the both of us–to split up, or, at least, decide never to have kids. My dad’s given up talking about it, finally, but it’s been a rough ride and I’m sure it’ll come back one of these days.
And if our races isn’t the issue, it’s something else. It’s always something. Such as how I apparently don’t care about my family and I’m made to feel guilty for having friends who care about me–seriously. (In reality, family is very important to me, but my most of my close family has passed away or I haven’t seen them in 15 years. What’s a girl to do?)
I’ve found a few people with similar problems spread across the vast sea of happy wedding blogs, but was wondering if anyone on weddingbee can relate? How are you or did you deal with things?
Thanks in advance. And if you can relate, feel comforted that you’re not alone!
