I thought this would be appropriate as we all hit emotional blocks in this one year (woohoo!!) countdown and already have begun giving advice/support so here we are…..VENT!
I have calmed down a bit but there are alot of personal things happening in our lives right now that are really putting a damper on trying to be excited as we countdown our wedding day to include his EX-WIFE (gosh she is such a bish!) but anyway I am calm for the most part…..lol
I know I would be more excited if I had people around me who actually love me besides Corn. I feel so slated but what can I do…..

I’m sorry you aren’t feeling a lot of support but I am a little confused about your problem. Do you miss your family and friends? How does he want to include his ex-wife?

His exwife’s lack of financial support to their son while she is out doing whatever she “needs to do” is really affecting the excitement in this wedding process as we are picking up her slack there are alot of underlying issues in this tangled web that are mostly activated due to her lack of maturity.
Yes I miss my family and friends.

I’m sorry it is putting a damper on things. Just think about the positives and how great it will all turn out in the end. Plus on the wedding day, you will be completely surrounded by family and friends! I would try to phone call a friend or family member and have them help google wedding ideas or dresses with you. I know g-chatting with my MOH about bridal gowns always puts me in a better mood and makes me feel more connected with her.
Hang in there – your wedding day will be great.

Life happens! There are some stumbling block issues that we have been dealing with too lately, though no ex wives thankfully, mostly just emotional ridiculousness.
I really miss having my girlfriends nearby, just to go for coffee/tea with and chat, so that’s been tough, but not much I can do about it either. I’ve just been trying to roll with the punches and not let it get me down (too much).
I’m sorry your SO’s past is causing waves, but I am sure you will be able to work through it!

Hang in there! I’m sure the wedding seems really far away at the moment, but until then, we’re always here to lend an ear!

Sorry you’re going through the drama! No matter what, life goes on while we’re planning our weddings–I wish it wouldn’t sometimes. I had this idea of it being the happiest time of our lives, and it is kind of, but there have definitely been some hurdles!
Thankfully we have WB to vent!!

@BFRANK2584: I am sorry there is so much going on with you two right now. I think weddings, while wonderful, can slap a magnifying glass on other problems and really elevate your stress levels.
Breathe. Lean on your guy. Everything will be okay, and in a year, you’ll be in wedded bliss!

Thanks ladies…..I really sometimes need to yell but to maintain my sanity I won’t do it at work, lol, I may have even bigger financial issues then So as I said sometimes you just need to vent and why not on a board of complete strangers?
