- Wedding: August 2012
I’m very sad that my future stepmother in-law has announced she’s not coming to our wedding. We have been together for 12 years and the idea that one of our parents wouldn’t be there is devasting. She has been in my FH’s life for over 20 years.
I understand that she hates to fly, drive long distances, be away from home more than a night or two, etc . . . (It’s anxiety.) And I understand that our wedding is in Wisconsin and she would have to travel from Upstate NY. BUT, she’s known for 12 years that I’m from Wisconsin and even if we weren’t getting married there, we have never lived less than 6 hours from her. I’m trying not to be angry, so I guess I’m just starting to feel very, very sad. I want her to come. I can’t imagine how my future father in law is feeling and how sad he will be if she really doesn’t come.
I don’t know what to do. I want to respect her, but I don’t want to give up on getting her to the wedding. I’ve got 4 months- any thoughts on what to do?
