- Wedding: November 2011
Okay.. So I NEEEED to vent!!
Mr. M’s brother is 25, just turned 25, and JUST moved out of his parents house with his gf of 8 years.. His gf lived there with him for about 3 years.. He’s been unemployed for probably 2 1/2 – 3 years, but has been doing “side jobs” and earning money from unemployment. They never paid rent while living with SO parents, NEVER did their own LAUNDRY, SO’s mom did it all! They just moved out for the first time on their own.. FBIL just completed the Police Academy 2 months ago, YAY! I was very proud of him, obviously! We all were!!! 🙂
Well his gf was accepted down south for Pharmacy school – Shes been in school for like 9 years now, and has 4 left.. So he moved down there with her.. Shes paying everything, rent, utilities, etc.. (During her schooling she was working full time, as well as school full time) She has some loans paying for most of their stuff, but also has $ saved from working.
Anyway.. We told Future Brother-In-Law about our wedding plans.. He was “fine with it.” We reminded him recently that we were gonna mail out invitations, I asked if his gf would be my bridesmaid, and she said yes. Well once they got the invitation HE called COMPLAINING she wouldnt be able to get out of school and it doesnt fit in HIS SCHEDULE. OUR WEDDING DOESNT FIT IN HIS SCHEDULE! HIS BIG BROTHERS WEDDING!!! Nevermind we told him/them about it like 4 months in advance! So, Mr. M said okay if she cant come, then she cant come, are you coming. He said yes. So we went looking for mens attire, and when we found what he wanted his men to wear, we emailed his brother what it was (They live 3 1/2 hours away from us) His brother called Mr M complaining that he didnt like what he had to wear and why coulndt he wear something else… The price wasnt reasonable, $80 for top & bottom, so we offered to help pay or pay the full outfit, yet he STILL COMPLAINED! Hello!! We’re offering to pay for your entire outfit and youre still complaining!
Mr. M has an older brother who lives in MA. Hes also gonna be in the wedding.. I vented to him briefly that how could little brother have the balls to ask us to change our date, btw did I mention that ^ there, idk.. but he asked us to change our date to next year because it doesnt work with his unemployed schedule! Thats ALL I said. Well, this afternoon Mr M and I got a text from his brother: “After me meeting (Big Brother) for the first time in years I think its immature to bitch and whine about me to him so fu** you both. No need to make me the bad guy when I’m no longer in your wedding that I was never apart of anyway.” UGH!!
So I called SO and he got the text too, of course, and he says to not reply and say nothing, to ignore it! IGNORE IT?!?!?! UGHHH!!!
Am I wrong here? What should I do? UGHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
