    All parents deny favoring one child over another, yet most parents do. This is one example of that.

    Just be glad your Fiance is not the one who is 30 and still living with his parents!

    DanaWeddingGuest:  has nailed it OP. It’s just they favour your Brother-In-Law, for whatever reason and probably always will. A pain in the  the arse but nothing   you can do , except laugh and make stories out of it , you already know the style –

     “It’s like we announced we’re buying a house and the first thing his parents do is buy his brother a set of saucepans”

    That’s  funny, a bit  rueful and cathartic basically . And the  last sentence pp wrote is  very pertinent !

    I thinkyou may be reading a bit much into it here. You’ll porbably have a much nicer wedding than them, anyway, as it sounds like they are bad at managing money.

    kamurp:  Yes.  This is the oddest thing I’m finding here.

    As someone who has also lost their parents and has no family I think this *may* be odd but that you’re noticing it so much because of your own family situation. i would encourage you to focus on all the great things about your engagement and decision to build your own family with your Fiance. 

    I know you wanted to announce your engagement yourself but your Future Mother-In-Law being so keen about it does show how excited she is
