- Wedding: May 2009
I know this was written about before on here about cousins. But my sister wants to get married 1 month after me! I feel this is so rude and inconsiderate and I can not begin to tell you how bitter this is making me. We are both supposed to be Maid/Matron of Honor for each other, and at this point I’m about to say it’s better for me not to be in her wedding if she is going to get married so soon. We have the same family and friends. The only difference is our fiance’s friends and family.
This bothers me so much because when you have a big family you share everything. This is not a time in my life that I want to share. I am also relying heavily on monetary gifts to start out our new life & i feel I will be totally jipped regardless if I am marrying first. One moment it is something for me, and the next it is something for her. When you get married it is the one time in your life where you feel special from the attention you get from everyone else. Now it’s getting robbed. To my family this is seen as just selfishness and not a good enough excuse for my sister to push back her wedding.
For some reason I have to present a court case of evidence to my family of why this is bothering me. I need help in expressing why this is so bothersome. I would even settle for her to wait 2 months. What are your feelings? And how long do you think she should wait?
