That sounds really stressful.  Just try not to let their drama affect your happiness!!  I know that’s hard, because you care for them deeply.  But they may not be willing or able to see past their own issues right now, and asking them to do so may make things worse, perhaps inciting drama with you as well.  Good luck with your situation!  I hope it works out for you!!

Whoa there buddy now that’s a whole lotta stressful things that I just read and I didn’t even finish!

I’m sure that all of our families are dysfunctional, it’s just how you deal with it. BUT nobody said that you haddd to deal with it! LOL and I learned that the hard way. No pun intended. I always always always was the one stuck in between family feuds, than I realized that I didn’t have to join every fight I was invited to. Not saying that you are in the same situation I was in, it’s just a different way of looking at it. : )

Don’t let all of it get to you! : )

Hope your wedding is magical! You deserve it!

Yup, weddings definitely bring out the crazy! Hang in there, only a few more months to go. Irrationality is pretty much an infectious disease during wedding planning, but the wedding itself will be a pretty good cure.

Just make sure to take a break from all the nuts every so often and you’ll be okay.

I understand what you’re going through, although not as extremely.  My mom pretty much hates all of my dad’s family.  She doesn’t want any of them to be invited, but seeing as how they’re my only family (she doesn’t associate with any of her extended relatives, has no siblings) I want them to be there.  Fiance and I don’t want Future Sister-In-Law at the wedding, period.  Future Mother-In-Law and Future Father-In-Law know about this, but I don’t think they fully understand.  So, that’s drama waiting to happen.

I’m just hoping that everyone can behave themselves for your big day!  I want you to really be able to enjoy it.
