*hugs* I sympathise with how hurt you must feel right now. Regardless of their gambling problems, they are still your parents and you wished they’d be there on your big day.

Concentrate on the happy future with your to-be-hubby!

((Hugs)) No good advice, you seem to have a great outlook on this, and it’s so understandable that you’re upset. I’m really, really sorry. Sucks when the parents act like the kids and our roles are reversed…but there’s nothing we as the kids can do about it.

There is no good advice on addiction. But I am a firm believer in letting those who hurt you because of their addiction know what they have done and how it has affected you. 

 

I think you need to tell them how hurt you will be that they are not attending, even if it hurts you to say it. Sometimes people realizing the damage they have caused is an eye opening experience.

I’m sorry about your disappointment 🙁  My family is coming from Out of Town also and whenever another person says they can’t make it, my heart sinks.  Life is rough sometimes, but you’re right.  The real deal is that your Fiance be there, and you have a witness.  Everything else is just a bonus 🙂

I’m sorry. What could anyone say?? They are still your parents. Is it sure that they cannot make it? Can they change their mind.

Anyway, don’t let this ruin your day. It’s all about you

You will get over it. As I said: it’s all about you and him…Concentrate on other beautifull things that are to come.
