@tiffanyscanlan:  This is family…and honestly, a wedding is only going to bring drama to the surface.  These attitudes are something you will deal with for the rest of your life.

@tiffanyscanlan:  I don’t know why joy and happiness in one couple brings out the uglies in other people!  It’s a mystery of the universe.

@tiffanyscanlan:  My father divorced by mum and and almost immediately remarried. For my mother it was ultimate betrayal after 20+ years of marriage. So what has my mum done at each of her children’s weddings? She put on her big girl panties and coped. And this happens at probably thousands of weddings every week: divorced couples behave, for the sake of their children.

Your FH should tell his sister that she is being ridiculuous: if divorced parents can cope with seeing each other at a wedding, then stepsisters certain can.

@tiffanyscanlan:  maybe as an outsider she will respect you more ppl tend to behave a lil better for people who are not their direct family its terrible to say it but alot of ppl will walk all over siblings and might give u a better shake at winning them over …. perhaps say this is your wedding not her’s and its important she is their however its also importnat everyoen else is there too so tell her u would be very happy if she could let her differeances lay for one evening 


let her know its to respect you she likely be ezere swayed alot of ppl push and walk all over real family 


my aunt walks all over my mom and her sibs and family but is sweet as gold if anyone outside is there b.c. she likes to look good

@tiffanyscanlan:  Bluntly because it is your special day and no one elses.

It sucks but you can’t control other people.
