- Wedding: September 2012
I have been engaged for 4 days and have not recieved a congratulatory phone call from my fiance’s family yet. There is a little bit of background, here is the deal:
My fiance is ten years older than I am and was married once in the past (although it only lasted about two years). He got into a fight with his sister right before Christmas and only made amends with her about two weeks ago. His grandmother is ill and it has certainly been very stressful on his mother. He has another sister who I have not heard from, however she left a voicemail on his voicemail. We have been dating for 3 1/2 years and living together for 2 years. I do feel that his family has not totally warmed up to me.
Am I overreacting, or should i have recieved a phone call from someone by now to congratulate me and welcome me into the family? I am starting to feel very concerned at the lack of enthusiasm from his side of the family. Thankfully, my family couldn’t be happier for us. Do you think that his family might not be all that excited because it’s the “2nd time around” for him? Should I reframe from calling them and wait it out/give them time to come around, or should I be seriously concerned?
