Oh wow where do I begin, i guess this is more of a vent than a question but feel free to give any feedback! My parents divorced when i was 5 i dont know the full story all i know is that my mum ended up with our neighbour not long after. Im sure there is more to the story but as far as i am concered its none of my business.
So basically my dad got remarried a long time after also to a woman that I have had a very up and down relationship with, currently we are not really on speaking terms which hurts my relationship with my dad. we used to talk weekly and after the last blow up with my step mum we didnt speak for 3 months. Not because i have an issue with my dad but it just got all too “polite and awkward”. Last time i went to visit my dad my step mum asked if there was any cheap accomodation near the venue (they are coming interstate) i said there are a number of hotels and suggested a few in my STD but she gave attitude and was like yeah no i mean cheap. I know my dad has had financial difficultly over the years as he is unable to work (work accident left him paralysed) and my step mum has never had a stable job to help. So last night i told him that we will cover the hotel and not to worry about it, he first question was is your mother and step father staying at the same hotel. I was quite suprised this was even an issue, they split 25 years ago and are both remarried. Im starting to worry about if he doesnt want to be in the same hotel then god how is the actual wedding going to be……
I know they have had issues in the past, dad left my 18th bday dinner early simply because according to my step mum he didnt feel comfortable around my mum and step dad. Im hoping they can pull their shit together for my big day 🙁

My husbands parents HATE each other, they do not speak to each other at all and have been sore rates for almost 20 years now. I was worried about how they would deal at our wedding but in the end stopped worrying about it. If they wanted to act like children on our wedding day we were not going to let us affect us. we sat them at opposite sides of the room for the reception but other than that I have no idea what happened between them haha all I know is no one has said anything to us so they must have gone ok. You need to just not worry about it 🙂 enjoy your day!

rrweddingday15: you cant control other peoples actions on your wedding day. maybe just appointment someone to keep an eye on them in case anyting blows up and they can escort them out, lol.

- Wedding: September 2015 - Beach
First off – I know how you feel!
My fiance’s parents are divorced and hate one another too. As for my family, there are various members who are on limited or are no speaking terms at all, including myself and my own dad. He threatned to not even come. My fiance and I are trying our best to coordinate tables where we know certain people will get along. We will also likely have no seating arrangement for the ceremony, in addition have plenty of “distractions” for people…. other rooms in the venue where people can hang out, or go outside, as well as maybe a game table or photobooth to distract people from one another. It’s too bad but unfortunately just because someone is an adult, doesn’t mean they act like one 100% of the time.
I hope the best for you!

Oj so sorry to read this…i see lots of bees with not so much loving family. Im am not inviting my older sister or her husband (not speaking for years and not planning on, never met their child etc..)
My FI’s parents got divorced but not tha long ago.. He broke her heart, left, now living with his girlfriend for quite a while.. We have traditional seating at the wedding so they two have to sit togeter and girlfriend at another table which i sense will be drama… Not to mention mother and father talk together but its not like they are excited.. Just awkward..
i really hope your parents will keep it together, it is your day!!
