So, just to clarify, your Mother-In-Law is responding positively to your overtures, but your SIL is ignoring you?  I got a little confused at the end.

Anyway, it sounds like you are doing a great job!  Keep it up as long as it isn’t wearing on you too much to not have things reciprocated.

Leaving her out of what though?  Invitations to dinner at your house?  General emails?

Ahhhhhh, I see.  Yeah, I think I might send that to her.  Just because, as you said it might get back to your Mother-In-Law that SIL didn’t get one and undo some of the goodwill generated with your Mother-In-Law.  Sucks, but as long as you know already that you aren’t getting any response from here, the only cost is postage right?

@coconutmellie: I actually really like Pagan. I was trying to go that direction for a little while, but my beliefs in Christianity have been too deeply ingrained ๐Ÿ˜€

ETA LOL, sorry, not that you really care what my opinion of paganism is ๐Ÿ˜€ My filter was off for a minute ๐Ÿ˜€

@coconutmellie: Actually, I was Wiccan for quite a few years. I have fallen out of active practice, but still identify with many of their beliefs. Darling Husband is Catholic and so is his family. I was very pleasantly surprised that they were all so accepting of the handfasting ceremony at our wedding. Im glad that your Mother-In-Law is doing her best to be accepting.

Not trying to threadjack, I just wanted to let you know youre not alone on WB!

@zippylef: If Coco doesn’t mind a further thread jack, could you describe what hand fasting is?

@Belle2Be: Its a ceremony where the officiant literally ties the hands of the couple together to symbolize their joining. You can use different things for this, typically its cords or ribbons (ours was a wreath of flowers). Its the ceremony that spawned the phrase “tying the knot”. It a very personal and cutomizable ceremony. It was originally an old Celtic tradition, but its now used by Neopagans/Wiccans/etc. We used it partly because of my beliefs and partly because I identify strongly with my family’s Irish/Scottish roots. (We also used some Italian and Catholic elements in our wedding, for DH’s side)
