Proinceas:  Let FI deal with it. It’s his cousin. He can raise the subject the next time they are together. “By the way ___, I heard you said you would be bringing your daughter as your plus one to my wedding. I just wanted to give ou a head’s up that we are not inviting any children to the wedding.”

Certainly I would take the opportunity as the wedding  comes up in conversation in the next year, to let people know that you are having a childfree wedding.

Wow. He sounds like a piece of work! If he is your FI’s best man, then this is definitely your FI’s territory. I would stay FAR from it with this guy. 

As for feeling torn– you can spend time feeling bad for it, or you can accept the fact that you made a choice because of very good reasons. You don’t have to explain it to people, either. Anyone who assumes you’re a “child hater” b/c of this choice has a very limited imagination or is just a grumpy pants.

I would think as well it would be hard for the daughter to be there if her dad is doing best man stuff all day? Can’t imagine it’s quality time together!
