HELP! I am getting married in June and my groom;s family has expressed ZERO interest in anything wedding related. I have not asked anyone in his family to assist with tasks, but no one in his family even asks me how things are going during phone calls or family get togethers. It is spooky like we arent even getting married! Is this normal? I come from a family that is very involved and active with each other. My mom, aunt, and I have done every piece of the planning thus far. My feelings are very hurt by his familie’s lack if interest in our special day and he doesn;t understand why it hurts my feelings. Any feedback would be GREATLY appreciated as this is causing friction between myself and my husband to be.

It seems like his family interactions and your family interactions are very different. Your family seems to be close and involved while his doesn’t. It is probably just different family dynamics. I wouldn’t take it personally if I were you.
ETA: My family is like that. We are very independent. DH’s family is very close and involved. They don’t understand our independence.

I think it is very difficult for the grooms family to know what there role is. They honestly probably just don’t want to step on your toes. They want to give you your space. Also, I have come to learn that some people are not wedding people. My mom is not a wedding person. She is hosting my wedding and she loves me more than anything in the world, but she really doesn’t want to talk about uplighting and candy buffets. If your FI’s parents have a general disinterest in your life (they never ask about your life- school, job, your feelings), then I would say you need to talk to your Fiance. If it is just about the wedding, then maybe let it go.
