My wedding is in June and Last night my parents announced they are getting a divorce after 29 years of marriage. I feel selfish to say anything, but I worried how the wedding is going to be planned with the two of them fighting. The other thing is that my mom is really depressed and I feel like bring up the wedding plans are just reminding her that her marriage isn’t working. What should I do?

If they made it 29 years, chances are good that they can be grown ups about the whole thing right? I’d have a sit down with both of them and see what they think.

Like the PP said, they’re both adults and seeing that you’re wedding is still 7 months away I’m sure you will be able to make the necessary accommodations if need be.
I’m sure that your mom is just happy that you’re happy. Unless it was a messy reason for the divorce (adultery, abuse, etc) I’m sure it was a mutual thing and she’ll be even more into it…maybe.

Oh, that must be such a trauma.
I am sorry to hear this. I’d suggest talking to them & letting them know how you feel, maybe after things settle down a bit.

The timing is a little different but my parents announced they were divorcing after 25 years about 6 months after I met my future husband. We got engaged two years later and I had the same concerns but they were completely unfounded. Your parents don’t have nearly as long but it is still 6-7 months. Hopefully they can hold it together. After that long they surely must know how to put on a good face and be adults about it.
