First, I’m really sorry that you’re having to go through all of this.  Family drama runs hand and hand with wedding planning unfortunately. 

I’ve said this before, but I think that sometimes we have to choose who is more imporant to us in our lives as we grow up.  It’s hard to choose your SO over your parents and family – but sometimes that’s what has to happen.  And evidently sometimes the best thing we can do for ourselves is to remove the toxic and hurtful people out of our lives – most of the time these are the people we’re closest to. 

But this is your FI’s family, he should be dealing with their issues – not you.  He should be choosing and setting his priorties – as you have.

Good Luck with everything!

It sounds like you guys might really benefit from having a counselor to talk to together about this!  Or if your Fiance isn’t willing, maybe you could go alone at first?

Good luck!!

wow… your situation sounds SO similar to mine! I dont really speak with my Future Sister-In-Law, and there are “issues” between my Future Mother-In-Law & Future Father-In-Law, as they are divorced and remarried too! Its constant drama and I can’t stand it. Wedding planning is supposed to be a happy time! I don’t understand why family can’t put on a happy face and support us… I hope things are better! Looks like its been a week since your post- *hugs*
