- Wedding: September 2011
Let me be blunt: I hate my mother. She’s the type of person that exsists solely to make others miserable. She is hateful, manipulative, and an alcoholic to boot. Unfortunately, my poor father won’t leave her because he feels responsible for taking care of her, as she is unable to support/take care of herself(long story). This is the only reason that I still have any kind of contact with her…
My very sweet and caring future family in-law keep insisting that they include her – asking for her number to talk to her about plans, sending her an invite to the shower they’re hosting for me, etc, etc. Fortunately, there is no way she can make it to the shower due to the distance… but, I would honestly prefer that she not be included in any part of our wedding.
Mr. KO and myself have expressed to his mother that she is persona non grata in our lives, but it doesn’t seem to hold any weight and I don’t feel comfortable explaining my sordid maternal drama to everyone involved.
Should I just grin and bear it since my mother won’t have that much to do with the wedding and it’s preceeding events, or is there a way I can politely put my foot down without offending them?
