- Wedding: September 2010
My SIL drives me NUTS!!! Long story short, I was pressured to put her in the wedding party and I made sure to include her in everything. However, she found every excuse possible to participate in as few things as possible. In fact, she didn’t speak one word to me or the rest of my bridal party on the night of the rehearseal dinner or after the ceremony. She and her husband are coming to visit for Thanksgiving so I thought I’d attempt to ask her if she and her husband wanted to hang out with me and my husband. When we asked her if she wanted to have lunch with us the day after Thanksgiving she responded with “well, I may be shopping or something”. Um ok? You can’t take ANY time out of your day to hang out with us a little bit? It’s so frustrating because I feel I’m making an effort to reach out to her and keep getting shot down. If she was a teenager I could understand it but she’s almost 30 years old..about 3 years older than I am. I’m also frustated because I have a feeling Thanksgiving tomorrow might be akaward. She has a tendancy to speak to me at family events only when spoken to and only when her husband and/or other family members are around.
