My Fiance warned me about his family, but I thought, surely, they cant all be that way, especially his uncle the Pastor. We are having 4 scripture readings during the ceremony. My close friends were going to be doing all the ready (a married couple of Pastors), but then I thought why not split it. I asked his aunt if she and Pastor H would be interested in reading 2 of the scriptures and she said she would ask him and call me back. That was 2 weeks ago. My Fiance told me I should never have made the call and he was right. Now when I do hear from them I will let them know that we are going in a different direction (w/o them).
Is anyone else marrying a great guy whose family is a majority of buttheads?

Buttheads? No. Ridiculous, super difficult, irritating, and prone to making almost everything WAY MORE difficult and involved than it needs to be? Yes. Sadly, FI’s immediately family has had some very tumultuous times in the past 8 years and their family dynamic is….way off. Fiance is literally the only one of the 4 of them that is sound, successful, and going in a productive direction (his brother dropped out of college, his mom is so difficult and frustrating, his dad is bipolar and super difficult to be around/deal with…you have to kinda walk on eggshells so as to not upset him…Fiance is getting married, has a BS in Biochem, and is going to med school this fall) so natrually he’s kind of the “rock” and the reliable one in the family. That means his mom calls him and asks him for assistance in really weird and unncessary things like rides to the airport (when both her husband and other son are home) or checking out dementia facilities to move her father into. It’s annoying sometimes, but I guess I need to accept that he’s the only one that is actually normal out of the the rest of them.
