- Wedding: March 2013
So I may just being a complete bridezilla here but I am in a situation and don’t know what to do. A little background information.. My fiance and I have been together almost 5 years and got engaged in September. We are planning on getting married in August (although we could move it back to December because of some conflicts). We have a rocky relationship with his parents. We used to be close with them, but over the past year things have changed. A big reason behind this was because his brother and brother’s girlfriend we did not get along with and his mother always defended them (Even when it obvious the were the ones wrong). His mother said she did not favor them but it always felt like it. Things got worse after she didn’t even really congratulate us after the engagement and we sort of “cut the string” and quit talking to them. Well, after almost 4 months of not talking to them.. I decided I couldn’t take it anymore and I wanted to try and work on the relationship with them. So I have a sit down with his mom and it went fine. We really worked some stuff out and I felt like it was a good starting point to help mend things. I think my fiance will come around once he see’s me coming around.
However, his brother called him recently and informed him that he is proposing in the next few months. Now we knew this was coming, and as much as we don’t like the girl, we are glad that he is marrying someone who makes HIM happy. However, I can’t help but being a little upset because I feel like his mother and I are just getting on the right track. So far she has had no part in this wedding planning and I know the second they get engaged she will be wrapped up in it and I just feel like she will forget about us. I know they won’t marry until the following summer (2013) so she could focus on us until after our wedding but I just know that she won’t. What should I do? Forget about trying to even mend the relationship or how can I come to terms with always having to compete with this girl. Its driving me insane!!
