LOL @ crebre – um…. I don’t think you should tell them that!

I don’t exactly have advice for you, but I am sorry you are going through this. I know this is probably not very helpful, but you have to remember that YOU are the one marrying him. As much as you want the support from your family, just realize that they aren’t making the decisions for you. They should trust you to make the best decisions for yourself, and as long as he treats you well, rich or not, that is all that should matter to them. I hope that they can come to terms with it all, and be supportive and happy for you on your big day!

Has your family has a chance to spend much time with him? If not, it may simply be a matter of them not yet having had a chance to see what you see in him.

He sounds amazing to me; his job shouldn’t be your primary concern when finding someone to love! If he were a deadbeat I might be saying differently, but he sounds great!

In all honesty, I’d sit her down and say, “Look, Mom, even you have admired what kind of a person he is with his kids and that he can be a good provider for them, and I know he’ll  be the same about me. I understand you have your doubts, but this is my life, and I would really appreciate it if you could focus on the good. If I make mistakes, I make them, but it is still my life and I am very happy with who I am, with who he is, and with the kind of couple that we are. I hope that you understand this, but if not, please stop with the condescending and very shallow remarks about how he isn’t good enough–because he is more than good enough to me, and that should be good enough for you.”

And after that, if she really does have the audacity to speak up, remind her of what you said and politely excuse yourself from the room. It’s none of her business what you see in him, and if she sees she doesn’t have an audience she’ll stop talking about it.
