I see what you’re saying. He has yet to send a text to the brother because he told me all he really wants to say is “fuck off”. But I think that he should say he has had plenty of time to apologize to me (over a year now) and can’t seem to do that even for the sake of my Fiance so that we now both agree that we want nothing to do with him. FI sent the screenshot of his aunt’s text with all of that bullshit to his mom and said “if this is what your Christianity looks like then I want nothing to do with it”
That’s what I’m screaming! She just won a lawsuit and is spending all of her money like crazy so she bought herself a $500 litter box amongst other frivolous things. Somehow she thought we would want one? If I wanted one I would have registered for one, but alas I did not. I would rather a single serving spoon then something so fucking stupid.
All in all, I wound up kind of breaking down and crying to Fiance over all of this last night. I come from a small family and am an only child. His family is bigger and all very involved with each other, so I’ve been looking foward to having that larger family unit. But now, I feel like an outsider. I don’t know how his mom can keep talking about his brother being blood as if I am chopped liver. My mom adores my Fiance and I know she considers him a son so it definitely stings to think they don’t feel the same about me. I told him that I’m glad we are united on this issue but I feel like maybe we should go to premarital counseling for advice on how to handle this in the future. Because this is never going to end, we will have children and there will be these arguments again if they don’t agree with how we baptize them, send them to catholic school, etc.

The saying “blood is thicker than water” is a misquote. It’s actually “The blood of the covenant is thicker than the water of the womb” Meaning the family you choose binds you tighter than those you’re born with.
She can suck it.
