- Wedding: June 2014 - Italiano's Humble
I’m gonna start with a big LOL. I don’t anticipate an issue, but knowing Future Sister-In-Law, it’s not impossible. So, this is more a hypothetical thing here! JIC it happens LOL.
Fh has 2 sisters, and I have 1. I’ve met his middle sister(he’s eldest of 3), and we don’t get along. Hell, NO ONE gets along with her. She’s attention seeking, etc. To the point on Christmas day, with all the people coming and going, we didn’t sit face to face with her 18 month old and say Merry Christmas. She actually threw a fit with their dad, demanding we acknowledge her daughter. Dude, she HIDES the kid in her/their room(she’s living at home right now), but when she’s not around, the tot LOVES for me to hold her, or FH to tickle her etc. But, it’s almost mutual, that when Future Sister-In-Law is around, everyone just kinda backs off the baby.
Anyhow. Youngest sister, I get to meet in a few months. She just got back from Afghanistan! YAY! She’s a bridesmaid. The other sister, doesn’t even know I’m pregnant, or we’re engaged. In fact, Future Father-In-Law is trying to disuade the younger from coming home, b/c he doesn’t want her to get caught up in the drama.
So. I know she’s gonna raise hell about everything. She told his family I was force feeding my 4 year old at T’giving, and he threw up. Yeah, he threw up, but I had a napkin at his chest “helping” him, not FEEDING him, rawr…so she decided to tell FH he was making a mistake with me, and if that’s how I treat my kid, he should be worried about having kids with me. NICE, b!tch. Everyone just tries to avoid her. Well, the family has ZERO respect for her daughters father, who is currently in jail on his 2nd/3rd DUI charge? No one wants him around, and FH doesn’t want him at the wedding. Hell, it took me convincing him to just invite HER. Even Future Father-In-Law was like “I wouldn’t”, but he knows how she can throw a fit as well.
I guess it’s crossed my mind that she’s either gonna A)throw a fit I didn’t ask her to do anything, B)that I included youngest Future Sister-In-Law, or that 3)she might try to insert her daughter as a Flower Girl. We’re not having any children. In fact, my (then) 3 month old, will leave after pictures, along with my 4 y/o(and fh’s 4 y/o if he’s here).
What would ya’ll do in this case? Like I said, it’s not a guarantee, but with her, we never know.
I recently just found out(this weekend) she’s BiPolar, and apparently the family not only suspects she’s quit taking those meds, but that she may be doing drugs. This is after it’s surfaced she’s pretty much tapped out FH’s family and her deadbeat BF’s poor grandma for cash. She wanted to buy my car, but we think she expected us to GIVE it to her, b/c when we set a $3k price(for a BMW no less, in mint condition), she changed her mind, and said that was too much, she’d find a car for just $1k. I’m just ranting. But, knowing how she handles things, and my pregnancy hormones and stress about other stuff that is an is Not Wedding Related, I don’t think I’m gonna end up being graceful about this one.
