I’m sorry I just need to vent real quick 😉
So my older sister has been dating a guy for a few years. No one in my family approves of him. He is crass, disrespectful, irresponsible, and inappropriate. He has made comments such as “Wow (sister), your little sisters tits are bigger than yours!”, slaps her ass in public, corrects her and talks down to her. BUT, she loves him and I have done my best to accept him as I ASSUME he will be a part of my family. My sister is…I’m guessing a little bitter? Since I’m younger and have known my Fiance for less time that she has been dating her bf. Also, my family adores him and accepted him right off the bat.
Now, the issue tonight. I live in Minnesota. I don’t know how it is anywhere else, but in MN our “deer opener” is the weekend of my wedding. Her Boyfriend or Best Friend KEEPS MAKING COMMENTS “Why would you have a wedding on deer opener?”, “You’re making it really hard for me to want to come to your wedding.”, “I really don’t want to miss deer opener” I’ve gritted my teeth and just ignored it and assumed he was joking.
My sister just called.
Sister: What time is your wedding?
Me: Right now we are planning on 4pm
Sister: Well….(bf) wanted to just go to the ceremony and leave so he could hunt. But your ceremony is a little late…
Sister: Well is it ok if he skips the reception?
Me: Yeah that’s fine. Are YOU ok if he skips it?
Sister: Well…I was hoping to have someone to dance with….
blahblahblah…I could care less if he doesn’t want to come to the wedding. It would probably save some drama, actually. But I can’t believe he isn’t there to support my sister! I swear…I just wanna smack him… ok vent over..

Wow that’s ridiculous! I come from a family of hunters so I get the significance of opening day but COME ON. He can get a fresh start bright an early for a full day of hunting the next day. I feel bad for your sister but sounds like she made her own bed…

Thanks ladies. Yeah he has quite the track record. My sister sticks up for him and I just bite my tongue, not worth the drama. She one of my bridesmaids (at my birthday party, mind you) that she thinks Mr. Lunchbox and I are making a huge mistake and will be divorced within a couple years IF we even make it to the alter. That lead to a month long freeze-out.
Sister: (bf’s dad) said (bf) is an idiot to go to your wedding and that he would never go.
Me: That’s nice. (All while thinking: Well I could give two shoots whether your bf can attend, I don’t even want to pay to put food in his smart mouth. And it’s fine that his father wouldn’t come because he WASNT INVITED) *smile*
Facepalm, facepalm, facepalm..

Well in all fairness, Deer Opener has been going on for a long time and you did decide to have your wedding on the most hallowed days of the year. Maybe compromise and allow the Boyfriend or Best Friend to attend your wedding in full camo.
