that’s so lame! Sorry that you are having to deal with that. I wish I had advice for you.

Sorry you are having to deal with this, but I am 99% sure that if he does RSVP, he will be there. If not for you and your Fiance, for the free meal.

gross. it seems like most families have one of those. i’m sorry your Fiance seems to be under this guy’s spell. the most i feel like you can do is try to keep going on the same track. you pretty much have to invite him but you can discuss it with your Fiance if you want by saying something like “do you think he’ll really show up this time or will he have “car troubles” again?” you know… something to bring up that you recognize this pattern. family’s family though so it sounds like unless you guys move away, this moocher’s going to be around. i’d be civil with this guy, but not much beyond that since he seems to be getting pissy about you being a part of FI’s life already!

Sorry you’re having to deal with it, but I agree with @noritake22 – if he RSVPs yes, he’ll probably show up- weddings are a big party! And he sounds like he’d be in for a party.

@enoh102: I don’t think I would include him in the headcount. Sadly, I have an uncle like this and I was almost certain he would show up…he didn’t. Free food + booze doesn’t always = showing up. There will probably be another person or two who will RSVP yes and not come, leaving an extra plate of food for uncle if he does show up.

I’m sorry you and Fiance are having to deal w/ this. You always expect your family to come through but that doesn’t always happen. Thank goodness you have the rest of your families to be there for you 🙂
