- Wedding: October 2013
I don’t really need advice, so I guess this post is just a vent… Plus I’m curious to see if anyone else is in the same boat as me!
My mom just doesn’t seem to be happy for me. Its weird–she flip flops between being “excited” about the wedding (constantly talking about it, bringing up different things like shopping for invitations or how we just settled on bridesmaid dresses and she really likes them, etc) and then just not excited for me at all. This past Saturday we had a pretty big fight. She doesn’t like FI’s family. Granted, his parents are going through a divorce so things are pretty uncomfortable right now in his family, and his sister just had a very un-planned baby at the age of 21. Yes, his family has problems. Maybe more than the average family. But she gives me such a hard time about it, as if I could change any of it/fix them!! I can’t!! And I’m going to marry FI, that isn’t going to change.
I understand that she’s trying to be a concerned parent, but this isn’t the first fight we’ve had over the same issue–his family. I’m just so frustrated. His family may have a ton of problems, but they’re not the reason I spent all of Saturday and Sunday in a miserable mood and crying! It seems as though she is ruining this engagement for me!
Sorry for the rant. Are any other bees having trouble with their moms through this process?
