Oh girl I’m so sorry.  That is so tough!  I think you need to maybe tell them that he has to respect your relationship with this man or you won’t respect your relationship with them anymore.  They are being completely rude and horrible to you, it’s not like you broke up with your other fiance on a whim, he has serious problems (I know of other people who have had issues coming back from Iraq so I’m not knocking him in the slightest).  I hope that your families become more forgiving.  Maybe your parents could talk to them?

I’m so sorry they are jerks. I feel the same way sometimes, and when that happnes, I start mentally cutting people from the guest list. It’s evil, but fun.

So sorry. All you can do is plan your amazing wedding with your amazing FI! Hopefully they will soon realize how serious you guys are and be supportive!

Ugh 🙁 I’m sorry you have to deal with that!

The important thing is that you’re marrying the man you love, and like you said, you called the other engagement off for good reasons – so it’s also really a good thing that you aren’t stuck in a marriage that wouldn’t have worked out! It’s a shame that your family can’t see that and be happy for you. 🙁

Would it be easier to just not bring up the wedding around them? Kind of prepare yourself ahead of time not to have their support, and focus on people who are better energy for you anyway?

That sucks. Sometimes people think when they gert old they can say whatever they want. Rude is rude, whether you are a child or a senior.

I’d just blow it off. Your life is your life, not theirs. But you could shoot a quick comeback, like “you’re right, I should have married the wrong guy, just to keep you all quiet”.
