oooh dear, i’m sorry. that would really frustrate me too… have you guys directly asked them for money? that’s what we had to do because they didn’t offer up any money on their own without being asked like my family did.

I agree. Very rude indeed.

Yeah, my family doesn’t talk about money…it’s considered very impolite, to this day I have no idea how much my parents make or have, and I like it that way.  That sounds like bragging to me and I wouldn’t like it one bit!

If I were your Fiance I probably would’ve written back ” that’s nice, care to share?” Just in a joking manner to see if they were hinting at helping out. If they are just bragging then its pretty rude.

Yeah that is really rude!

I don’t really get why people think a tax return is something you can do well on though or get excited about. It’s not free money, it’s your money that you shouldn’t have had to pay to begin with so you get it back! Sort of like forced saving I guess?

Sorry to hear about that. It sounds like they are very much into themselves, and their material things, and are just not considerate enough to ask how you all are doing with the wedding and in general. Don’t let it get to you down.

@Heatherloveskenny: Just be glad that you are smart enough to have withholding that doesn’t give the government an interest-free loan. I never understand the whole “huge return” excitement. I’d rather have invested that money for the past year and be earning interest on it. You’re going to have to learn how to block out one-uppers….there are so many of them in life, and most of the time, they aren’t actually winning!
