Back at the end of July, my Maid/Matron of Honor and I had a falling out. Aweek before the weding, she told me out of nowhere that she couldn’t be in it because she thought our relationship was emotionally abusive (not at all true) among other things. She said over and over, “you have the rest of your lives to spend together, why not just wait a few years?” Admittedly, Darling Husband and I got engaged after 6 months and married not long after.
We worked together at summer camp, and there was a guy, that she had told me in previous years she liked but was now denying it. They obviously liked each other, but kept denying it the whole summer so that they wouldn’t get in trouble (there’s a rule against entering relationships during camp). Well here they are, four months after they started dating, AND THEY JUST GOT ENGAGED!!! I’m so furious, she hurt me so badly and yet here she is doing it even more quickly than me!
Ugh this hurts. She used to be a really good friend.

@Tigerlilybride: Sounds like the green-eyed monster came out of her. That had to have hurt to loose your Maid/Matron of Honor so close to the wedding. Be the bigger person, be happy for her and keep your distance.

How long did they know each other before dating? How long did you and your husband know each other before dating? If they were friends for years, she could feel like she’s not rushing like she perceived you to be.
And for the love of all that is holy, can people STOP saying that everyone is jealous of everyone else?? People getting upset about other peoples decisions doesn’t naturally mean they’re jealous of the other person. That’s a sophomoric way of thinking.

@thejucheidea: Actually, she was jealous. Apparently everyone could tell except me. And no one thought to say anything to me. They’ve kinda seen each other around during the summer for years but never really been close. For yearsthey didn’t even talk. Darling Husband and I were the same, except we saw each other every now then throughout the entire year, not just the summer.
@LuvMySailor: She’s been pretending to be a good girl to get him (she lied a lot over the summer). I’m assuming that 4 months later she’s still doing the same thing so… I can’t really see this going well!

This all just sounds like very immature behavior.
