sumshine.dawn:  Well done for your Fiance stepping up. His Bro and wife sound horrible. Hopefully they can grow up and come for a meal with your guys.

Good for him.

Though part of me wonders why you would want to sit down for a meal with people who are calling you names and openly rooting against your relationship. It sounds like your Fiance may need to sit down with his brother and have a frank conversation that he needs to shape up and apologize/try to clear the air before you’re forced to share a meal with one another.

I’m really happy that you have such a supportive Fiance. It’s never easy with a difficult sibling, but I think you two are handling this as a team very well! I hope it all works out.

We’ve been waiting for my brother in law and his wife to act like adults, for over 30 years ….

sumshine.dawn:  Good for your FI! Doesn’t it feel amazing when your partner sticks up for you?

Something similar happened prior to our wedding with my father-in-law and FI’s best friend. My father-in-law didn’t speak to me for 2 years prior to our wedding. I would walk in a room, he would walk out. My husband confronted him before our wedding to find out what was really going on. Turns out, he heard that I have fertility issues and since my now husband is the last male in his family, his Dad was so upset that his name would die because of me. I’m now going through fertility treatments to get pregnant and there’s a huge change of us having multiples. Wouldn’t that be hilarious if he wasted 2 years being mad/upset and he ends up with twin or triplet grandsons? Moral of the story – talk to your family!

My husband’s best friend hated me and did everything he could to try and stop our wedding. He spread nasty rumors about me, talked bad about me behind my back to my inlaws (didn’t help the Dad situation above at all!), told my Husband he was making the worst mistake of his life, etc. My Husband finally had enough and told him if he can’t say anything nice about me, don’t bother coming around him. We haven’t seen or spoken to him since our wedding. 

Weddings bring out the best in people, don’t they?
