I’m sorry you have to face this sort of issue. I am surprised a Hindu ceremony is not legal in the UK; it seems like they are usually more open to different beliefs there than we are in the United States!

Anyways, what makes your family feel as though you are catering more to his family? Of the 28 guests at the ceremony in the morning, are most of them from his side?

Could you eliminate the drama and just not invite his cousin to the civil ceremony, or has he already been invited?

I say just talk to your parents and have them talk to your Aunt or Uncle and explain how you had to draw a bright line. You shouldn’t have to do all of the heavy lifting. Besides, they will likely understand it better coming from someone that they don’t consider a “child” so that they don’t minimize your feelings as selfish.

@blonde: If his cousin is like his best friend, then have him there and don’t worry about your fam. Do what the two of you want, and hopefully your family will be on board. If not, they will unfortunately just have to deal. Good luck!!
