- Wedding: April 2008
My mom, my FI, and my FMIL all work at the *same* place…that in itself is a major recipe for disaster but they are all incredibly stubborn people. There has always been a little (ok, a lot) of tension between the two mothers….but the other day apparently something happened that just really ticked everyone off. No one will tell me what happened…probably a good thing. This all caused my mother said the most awful thing to me yesterday. She told me I should just not get married, that we should just move in together and end it at that. I asked why. She said because my wedding day was not going to be a happy one!!! How awful!!! I managed stifle back tears. We’ve been together for over two years now despite the fact that my parents disapprove of him ("he’s not good enough for me") so I’ve managed to become somewhat thick-skinned about the whole situation. But my mind began to wonder what would happen at the rehearsal? Or god-forbid, the wedding?? Has anyone else has parent/in-law trouble?? How do you cope??
