@Tigerlilybride:  Sorry this is happening. Don’t let it affect you too much (I know, easier said than done). But as long as you and FI know the truth & love each other, stay strong & don’t let the haters win. (Hugs)

@Tigerlilybride:  I can’t say I even  entirely understand what you posted.


Why is its anyone’s business if you went to a club or got into a spat months ago?

Are you or FIL  family ultra-religious, as in the type it’s some big deal you went out for drinks? 

How old are you and FI? I’m guessing pretty young if gossip or petty drama can still cause this kind of friction or upset. It will get easier because as you get older you can just cut out the drama prone and gossipy people out of your life.

I also don’t really understand why any of this matters to anyone. Did you work at the camp? Is it a religious camp? heh!?

The whole thing sounds kind of catty and immature in my opinion. I’m not sure I would want people like that involved in my wedding, or in my life for that matter. Is there a reason these people are involved? Is there another venue available? How do they even know who will be your officiant/pastor, etc? It seems kind of ridiculous for another person to be contacting your person of clergy, rather than bring up any concerns directly to you. I’m in my 30’s and I don’t have folks like that in my life. I agree with Mirna. I think it will get easier as you get older and develop different relationships.

I am also confused.

Just enjoy your wedding! This whole thing sounds very unimportant in the larger picture (i.e. being married for 50+ years). Why did your FFIL get so involved and almost not want to marry you? That part concerns me the most.

Also, why do people think everyone won’t be happy at the wedding? Doesn’t think rumor only involve like 3 people? Or has it spread more?
