Update: we decided just to show up at my FI’s parents’ house w good attitudes and we had a plan to be ready to leave if FI’s parents acted up. Just when we were walking out the door to head over there, we received a msg from a third party telling us not to come. The message keeps changing in terms of which parent is more upset or not and whether they’re upset at me, my FI, both and which parent is “ready to move on” or wants to “talk through this”. His parents haven’t contacted us themselves.
My FI and I are over it. He was extremely hurt to be excluded from Christmas for no reason. I had a plan b ready of other things to do to keep his mind off of it as much as possible and we’re hanging out w his siblings separately during the holidays, so that’ll be nice. But my FI and I are done w his parents for now. You don’t exclude someone from holidays for no good reason and we have places to be w ppl who care about us and show it and that doesn’t include unnecessary drama- my family, friends, and really everyone else but his parents. This last slap in the face was enough that we aren’t turning the other cheek anymore. Enough is enough. If they ever work through their issues, they can let us know. If not, we don’t need that negativity and cruelty in our lives.
