Hi everyone! Just need to vent, and I honestly don’t know where else to go.
I’ve been planning my wedding for a year now, just to have to downgrade it to a ridiculously simple courthouse and restaurant affair. So you know, my Fiance is the one who wanted a wedding. None of my family can make it; my mother and I are currently not on speaking terms (every 5 years or so, she takes something that I do, like get sick, or pick a career to persue, as a personal attack).
Further more, my Fiance and I are currently staying at his mother’s house, where his brother, sister-in-law, and teenage niece and nephew have been living for the last 10 years. The house is a disaster: his brother’s family has destroyed it. The tub is cracked, appliances keep breaking… and worst of all, they’ve been mooching off of my mother-in-law all this time! Never paid a bill, don’t pay rent, don’t even buy her food!!!! The worst part? His brother works for a toy store, while his wife (who is full bodied and able), stays at home watching tv all day. They even had the audacity to take my mother-in-law’s bed!!!! They also take up 2 fridges, and were pissed when we came to stay (emergency move, they knew we were coming for close to 3 weeks!). My FI’s sister-in-law wanted us to use a mini fridge… So right now, we’re basically staying in one of the living rooms. We’ve had to board up one doorway, and fence off the other. It’s like living in a cage.
We’ve also recently discovered (my Fiance is a fed. accountant), that they’ve been lying on their taxes and collecting wellfare! I’m so disgusted by them!
Last month, one of our dogs got into a scuffle with one of my mother-in-laws dogs. I broke up the fight, and was holding my dog in my arms, waiting for her to calm down so I can let her outside. Out of no where, my FI’s brother came from behind me and punched my dog in the head. My mother-in-law has begged us not to call the cops… I’m still searing over the whole thing. I carry mace on me at all times.
To top it all off, we’re getting married on the 26th, and only my FI’s mother, sister (her husband and baby daughter), and perhaps one of his friends will be there. We can’t bring our dogs, and we can’t afford a hotel room because….*drum roll please*…. my FI’s had to pay most of the bills since we’ve been here! My FI’s gone 12h/day (commuting 4h total), and this is how our marriage is going to turn out… It feels like my soul is being crushed!
I’m so pissed! I’m struggling to suppress my rage at my FI’s brother and his family, which at this point I can only consider as human garbage…
So to sum up: all alone, surrounded by garbage who are ruining what should be, at the very least, a happy carefree day.
