- Wedding: August 2010
Wow ok so I did taxes for my fiance and I had the tax guy send them to his house (where his mother lives too…and father is there visiting from Mexico). So it’s complicated but long story short the tax guy addresses the envelope (family tax guy) to my fiance’s father. He doesn’t really speak English and has pretty much lost it (not all there mentally) because of so many years of abusing alcohol. I’m not trying to be mean, it’s just the reality of what’s going on.
Soooo my fiance’s dad now has it in his head that we’re stealing money from him (he saw my fiance’s tax refund). So he’s pretty much throwing a fit. On top of that, the whole family now knows how much money we will have and people will probably get in our business (FI has 7 brothers/sisters).
I know I want to marry my fiance but his family drama is sometimes too much for me. If one person knows something, then EVERYONE knows, and EVERYONE has an opinion. I’m not worried about money and I know I’ll work it out with his parents but I CAN’T handle anymore criticism than what already happens during wedding planning. My fiance moved in with his mom to rent the studio on the side to help her out and now it seems we don’t do enough somehow. Looking at the circumstances I shouldn’t let it get to me but it does make me sad. I want this time to be happy and a time where we can bond as a family – not more drama 🙁
